Ford kills Tesla SEX idea

tesla sex

Tesla has apparently abandoned trademark for the Model E name, the previously expected name of the third-generation vehicle from the automaker. Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, took the discussion on the topic into somewhat risqué territory, during a shareholder meeting in Mountain View, California last week.

"A friend asked me at a party what are you going to name the third-generation car? Well we have the S and the X," Musk said, "so we might as well make it the E."

Finally, Musk said Ford called him saying it would sue Tesla for using the Model E trademark. Musk continued the story, "And we're like, Ford's killing sex... that's terrible. So, OK fine we won't use the model E."

Apparently, Ford and Tesla had a previous agreement about Tesla not registering the Model E name. So, now what will the new, more affordable Tesla be called?
