Tesla Model question ....

The new model Y Tesla got me wondering if there was more to their naming schemes than alphabetical order ...

so, is the Model X intended for soccer moms and the model Y for soccer dads?

Elon originally wanted four models of Tesla. But the "Model E" was contested by Ford in court, so Tesla had to rename the "Model E" the "Model 3".

So the models are: S3XY.

Yes, Elon is a geek with the sense of humor of a 13 year old.
And I kinda love that.

yes, it was supposed to be SEX and now SEXY (replace E with 3).

I wonder where what's coming next.

But those are straight from Banks's novels - I bet that a good number of people who read them wished they had something (like a boat) they could name after Culture ships.
