Suspicion over name

Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has also said the Gen 3 model will not be launched anytime soon, even though there has been a good number of rumors doing the rounds.

CEO Elon Musk has sometimes used the letter e in public and other times the term “Gen 3” while referring to the project. There is no official word on the launch date, with some reports suggesting early 2015 but most expecting it by 2017.

  1. Someone probably pointed out that if they built a Model E, their car lineup would then consist of the S, E, and X…

    Accidentally posted this on another article first.

  2. This merely indicated ‘E’ was market researched and determined to be behind other naming options. Also this is classic Musk, the day before earnings they build buzz around the gen 3 car.
