Meaning behind the Tesla logo
If you want an electric car that doesn’t look like something Mr Bean would drive, you have to go with a sleek-and-sexy Tesla. Since 2003, Elon Musk has changed how we’ve viewed electric vehicles.
Explaining the logo is not too difficult: the company’s name is a tribute to famed electrical engineer, physicist and scientist Nikola Tesla.
Some people assume the T represents a Tesla Coil. However, billionaire owner Elon Musk put the record straight when he replied to a question last year on Twitter. “Similar to SpaceX, the T is like a cross-section of an electric motor, just as the X is like a rocket trajectory.”
With production finally getting on track on the budget-friendly Model 3, the Tesla logo is likely to become more recognisable.
