Tesla has in fact several different presentation days, spread throughout the year. Battery Day and AI Day have been held previously; now it is the turn of “Investor Day”, which will take place at Giga Texas in Austin, on March 1st, as Elon Musk himself has confirmed on social media accounts.
The electric car firm already announced last January its intention to celebrate this day sometime before the end of the first quarter of 2023. Apparently, it will be an event apart from the other annual special event for shareholders, since some investors will be invited so that they attend the celebration and participate in the progress the brand will be carrying out in the coming years.
Investor Day will apparently include tours of the Austin Gigafactory and a talk about Tesla's long-term expansion plans, along with details of the new platform for third-generation electric vehicles, all of which will be included in the 'Master Plan 3' roadmap. Said plan was mentioned for the first time almost a year ago, but without actually giving too many details about it; in just a few weeks all the nuances will be revealed.
But what can be expected from Tesla's 'Master Plan 3'? Although by now the specific details are a total mystery, the first rumors suggest that this plan will place special emphasis on achieving the manufacture of electric cars and their components with net-zero carbon emissions, thus guaranteeing "an energy future totally sustainable for planet earth”, as announced by Musk himself.
Additionally, it is also expected to get to know details about Tesla's expansion plan into other markets, and the construction of new Gigafactories for its electric cars and other components, such as batteries. This will imply significantly expanding the production capacity and scale of the brand, as well as changes in the mining processes and in the refining infrastructure for the initial raw materials and final industrial products.
The 'Master Plan 3' could also include references to other key “energy receivers” that have not been explored very deeply up until now in certain markets, such as solar panels of different sizes, as well as the adoption of stationary batteries for home use or for larger networks (Powerwalls and Powerpacks, respectively). One point that this new roadmap will almost certainly address, however, is the plan for adoption of autonomous driving technology, FSD: it is highly expected to have interesting news in that regard.
In any case, next March 1 we will be able to clear up doubts about the future that the most famous electric car company in the world holds; the highly anticipated Investor Day is just around the corner and everything will become clear for everyone. For now, all that can be done is to wait to finally see Tesla's 'Master Plan 3', and to find out what Elon Musk announces.
