Update: 8:53 PM EST: Bloomberg reported that Tesla did not file this application, but instead it was submitted by a fan named Jerome Eady. According to the report, Tesla was unaware of the filing.
According to the US Patent and Trademark Office, Tesla secretly registered to manufacture electric motors for non-land vehicles.
first discovered and reported electric, Tesla filed and filed documents with the USPTO on December 29. The trademark application outlines plans by an electric vehicle manufacturer to potentially develop and manufacture motors for planes and boats.
“The TESLA™ trademark registration is intended to cover the following categories:
The petition has been received and is currently being processed as of December 31, the last update listed on the USPTO website.
US classes don’t reveal much, but international classes reveal a lot. The application lists international as “Class 7”. This is defined as “machines and machine tools; motors and engines (excluding land vehicles); mechanical couplings and transmission components (excluding land vehicles).”
Looking back over the past two years, CEO Elon Musk has hinted at some non-road vehicle applications Tesla could potentially explore.rear Tesla Lati Musk, who reported on the Gigafactory, Texas expansion last year, said the purpose was to begin a commitment to the ecological paradise that surrounds the site. We have detailed the potential development of an electric boat that can be used to float on the water.
Additionally, Musk says the upcoming Cybertruck, an all-electric pickup, is waterproof and capable enough to traverse the South Bay and Brazos Santiago Pass between Starbase and South Padre Island in Texas. I implied that I was there.
Elon Musk says the Tesla Cybertruck will traverse rivers, lakes, and oceans with waterproof capabilities.
Of course, it can take years for patents and trademarks to get through the system, so there’s no timetable for when Tesla can implement these designs into current or future products. It alludes to some unconventional ways of locomotion for Tesla cars, such as a possible hovering feature on the Roadster.
