    On a recent post on the thread
    Random Model S sightings - Page 213
    (Number 2121 from John) a photo shows a handsome group of Model Ses.


    What would be a great term for a group of Tesla Model Ses? "Group" seems inadequate. A related thread was discussed on Collective noun for a group of Teslas but that was pertaining to Roadsters and last visited before the Model S hit the road.


    What should the collective noun be and why? Examples of some other collective nouns can be found at List of collective nouns - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    Since we all have battery packs, we should be a pack of Teslas! :)

    Correct Bonnie but that thread was before Model S was on the road. Should it be the same as Roadsters or should there be some differentiation?

    It was about a group of teslas - will we have to have a diff name for X? It will become very complicated very quickly.

    It can get complex. Some groupings have multiple nouns, even differentiating between types. For example, geese have multiple different collective nouns depending on whether they are on land, flying or flying in close proximity.

    A stealth of Teslas?

    A battery of Teslas. A battery is a combination of more than one cell.

    Since Nikola Tesla was the great champion of altrenating current and devoted his life to electricity in waves, I vote for "a wave of Teslas".

    ... or maybe "a current". :)

    I thought on a prior thread, a lot of us had said that we liked a "coil" of Teslas (can't find that thread now ...)

    Yeah, I have read "coil" used in articles about Teslas. i think the company has adopted it because unless the authors read the TMC threads (unlikely) someone at Tesla must have used it in conversation.
