Tesla Model E — Tesla’s Next In Line?

Everyone knows that Tesla Motors is planning future designs. A lot of enthusiasm is centered around a more affordable electric car (about half the price of the Model S) that will be produced in much greater volumes. However, details have not yet been released, not even a name. But according to a recent filing, it seems the name may end up being “Tesla Model E.” Tesla Motors recently applied for a trademark for the name “Model E” referring to “automobiles and structural parts therefor.”

Could the E stand for economy? Or perhaps efficient? Tesla Motors co-founder, CEO, and Product Architect Elon Musk has promised that the “sort of affordable” electric car mentioned above would be in production by 2017. Tesla Motors will first release the Model X electric SUV (at the end of 2015).

Currently, the new, smaller sedan is internally code-named Blue Star, with the Model S being referred to as White Star, according to Green Car Reports.

What do you think of the name Model E? Any thoughts on what else the E could stand for?
