    In the UK?

    In the US I think Tesla has been awarded the trademark Model E and Model Y.

    The article says "with the United States Patent and Trademark Office". So if Tesla already have model E then there should be a quick answer of NO. :wink:

    ____ Ford.... Get original or get off the porch.

    Sorry about that. It was a gut reaction. Ford knows what Tesla is doing and trying to interrupt Tesla's progress with silly stunts like this as opposed to generating real value for their customers just torques me off.

    A post by brianstorm on 8/5/13 showing Tesla's trademark: Model E

    I'm confused. Any trademark lawyers here?

    That's a song by the Arctic Monkeys. Minus the "s" that is.
