Elon Musk Hints That Tesla May Change Naming Conventions After Release Of Model Y
Just days ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed that the automaker’s upcoming minibus will be built on the Tesla Model X chassis.
Following that revelation, Musk was asked (via Twitter) what the name would be for the Tesla minibus.
At first, Musk seemed to like some rather unusual naming suggestions, like SpaceBus, for example.
Then Musk was asked if perhaps Model B would be used to keep in line with Tesla’s current naming conventions. Musk suggested that Tesla will likely change naming conventions after the release of the Model Y (a crossover based on the Model 3).
But then this Tweet surfaced (suggesting B S3XY):
And Musk’s response seems to suggest that Tesla’s current naming convention could stay in place for just a bit longer.
We personally would suggest dropping “Model” from the name. Let’s simply go with Tesla S, X, E, Y and B. It’s boring…yes, but it’s sure easy to remember and we certainly don’t need “Model” before each vehicle name.
