Elon Musk’s first master plan was with Tesla Motors, he was going to design and sell three models of cars. He now has another master plan, and his sights are set much higher than before.
Elon Musk has purchased Solar City, a company that he was a member of the board on, and has combined their solar panel construction with the Tesla home battery the Powerwall. He intends to integrate rooftop solar panels into a one ordering experience while developing what is going to be a fleet of self-driving electric buses and trucks. These vehicles would be traveling on solar power and would significantly increase the efficiency of our infrastructure.
Musk plans to also allow people to use their self-driving vehicles like a taxi when they’re not using it. This will be done through a button on their phone! People can actually get paid for owning a Tesla. Musk has pointed out that if they use their vehicles intelligently the costs of ownership could be lowered to the point where anyone could own a Tesla
