Tesla + tequila: What Elon Musk wants to call Tesla’s new brand
Tesla submitted a trademark application on 8th October for Teslaquila, describing the planned product as a distilled agave liquor
New York: What started as an April Fools’ Day joke that left a poor taste in Tesla Inc. investors’ mouths may soon become a reality.
The electric car maker submitted a trademark application on 8th October for Teslaquila, describing the planned product as a distilled agave liquor. It was filed as “based on intent to use,” which means Tesla doesn’t have the product ready just yet. The company needs to actually be making a product to obtain the trademark.
Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk tweeted on Friday that the brand would be coming soon. Musk also posted a mock-up of roughly what the tequila bottle will look like.
Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by ‘Teslaquilla’ bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks. This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what’s the point?
