Tesla is slated to showcase a heavy-duty truck and urban transport concept with high passenger density next year.

Titled as ‘Master Plan, Part Deux’ (part 2), Elon Musk has come up with a new blog post, detailing the company’s roadmap for the next 10 years. This is a sequel to his first 10-year plan which was put out at the time of founding Tesla.

The widely acclaimed entrepreneur admits that not all the objectives of the first 10-year plan were achieved but during the last few years, Tesla emerged as one of the only two American automakers (along with Ford) to have never filed for bankruptcy.

Tesla will work towards developing fully autonomous driving technology that is much safer than conventional cars.

He also jovially remarks, “Starting a car company is idiotic and an electric car company is idiocy squared.” Coming to the future plans, Musk has set huge goals for Telsa to achieve. In short, the vision is to cater to all major automotive segments by expanding the product portfolio, developing solar roof technology with seamless integration of battery without compromising on aesthetics, establishing self-driving car capability that is 10 times safer than manually driven cars, and using the autonomy to create a fleet which will enable owners to earn money when the car is not used by them.

Elon Musk says that a model cheaper than the Model 3 is unlikely to be necessary in the future.

As far as the new products go, Tesla is working on a heavy-duty electric truck, a compact crossover, a small pickup truck, and an urban transport with high passenger density (autonomous people carriers smaller than buses). At the very core of the 10-year plant lies creating more production capacity and increasing automation at the plant.
