Chart of Potential Tesla Models (A to Z)

tesla models

This is actually sort of old, but I just ran across it and it is a lot of fun, so thought I’d share. As you can see on the chart, it’s from Jalopnik.

Given that Tesla has now patented Tesla Model E and the next Tesla model is supposed to be an affordable version of the Tesla Model S, guesses are that the E would stand for “economy” or “efficient” or “everyone.”

Of course, all the other models are definitely right. (Well, maybe not the gas-powered Tesla Model G.)

From Jalopnik:

Based on a crack team of Jalopnik investigators and spies, we have learned a great deal more. The “letters” used by Tesla appear to be part of a complex, 26-symbol set. Operatives were able to determine all the members of this set, and even came up with a song as a mnemonic to remember the order. Brilliant!

After the model names, the Jalopnik Mainframe (located deep underneath Los Angeles, in Bronson Pinchot‘s abandoned humidor) was fed blueprints and speculative CAD files and came up with the vast array of electric-drivetrain vehicles planned by the company.

100% fact there.
