    DIN = Deutsches Institut für Normung <--- they came up with the standard for car stereo head units that we use today.

    I have been campaigning the following for some three years now; the revitalization of this thread makes this a prime site to continue my efforts....

    please consider adding under the "SC" acronym: "SpC" and "SvC" are useful conventions to avoid confusion between Superchargers and Service Centers.

    Tesla-related acronyms I learned in the last few days:

    SCTY = SolarCity (stock, but used also for the company)
    TSLA = Tesla (stock, but used also for the company)
    MS = Model S
    MX = Model X
    M3 = Model 3
    GF = Gigafactory
    TA = Tesla Auto
    TE = Tesla Energy
    EM = Elon Musk
    JB = JB Straubel
    GM = General Motors
    IP = intellectual property
    SA = SeekingAlpha
    BEV = Battery Electric Vehicle
    BES = Battery Electric Storage
    Q1, 2, 3, 4= First, Second, Third, Fourth Quarter

    Still haven't figured out
    SP = ?
    VIN = ?
    ER = ?

    Ideally, Supercharger, Service Center and South Carolina would have different acronyms.

    Or at least the first two.

    I added Model 3 as I was offended it wasn't there. Put in the alt reference to SC.

    This is a good list, wish I had seen it when I first got here. Now I just want a REAL wiki for TMC. A place where all the collective learning we do in these threads can be turned into an easy to access hyperthreaded document.
