According to The Verge, Tesla’s founder will continue to release new details about these projects. The hyperloop, a proposed ultra-fast method of travel first introduced by Musk in 2013, “would only take 29 minutes to travel between New York City and DC,” he claims. Musk also stated it would feature “up to a dozen or more” access points via elevator in each city.

Elon Musk’s ‘Master Plan’ for Tesla: Solar power, fully autonomous car-sharing and heavy vehicles

Tesla chief executive lays out plan for combination of Tesla and SolarCity

MarketWatch‘s Jeremy Owens reports Tesla Motors Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk doesn’t want to stop with electric cars: “He sees a future with heavy electric trucks and buses, as well as autonomous electric car-sharing networks, all powered by solar energy.”

That is the vision Musk laid out, part of a push by the car maker’s leader for the acquisition of SolarCity, a residential solar-power company in which Musk is heavily invested. In a recent blog post, which Musk had been teasing for more than a week on Twitter, he said that solar-power generation captured by Tesla’s Powerwall batteries is key to his vision for the future of Tesla.

Musk summed up his original “Master Plan” listed below  verbatim:

• Build sports car.
• Use that money to build an affordable car.
• Use that money to build an even more affordable car.
• While doing above, also provide zero emission electric power generation options.
