Tesla Rebranding

Tesla Rebranding

I feel that a good idea for Elon moving forward with his vision, he should rebrand his company with a future purpose.

Instead of simply Tesla Motors... for all of the future designs and travel methods (Rocket, Motors, Hyperloop) it seems as though his area of focus is Transport.

I think Tesla Motors should re-brand entirely into Tesla Transport

Hyperloop, Car, Rocket, all Tesla Transport. You know how we have Marc Trains, Amtrak Trains, etc...

I imagine a future where we say we're going to ride Tesla Transport.

Thoughts?

Beam me up, Tesla.

Perhaps eventually they will do just that. Right now they've got their hands full...

You want Tesla to take over SpaceX? What for? And the Hyperloop is open source, and various private companies are already working on it.

Silly suggestion.

I think what you mean is that you think there should be some sort of conglomerate umbrella company over all of these different ventures. If I remember correctly, I believe this is a question Elon has actually addressed before, and basically he said there is no reason or benefit to do such a thing. If it made sense in the future, then it would be considered.

For a variety of business, tax, legal and liability reasons it makes more sense to create separate entities. The sad reality of our regulatory and law suit driven world.

Umbrella corporation. Uh, no thanks.

A place for everything and everything in its' place is, has, and will always be the best formula for success in technological innovations.

Tesla is not a conglomerate supplier like WalMart or some other mega store distributorship...Tesla does what Tesla does, SpaceX does what SpaceX does and Solar City does what Solar city does.

Maintaining a focused approach to innovation is a proven business model.

How about GE? Mitsubishi? Even GM makes most of its money off of GM financing.

And when was the last time you bought anything from either GE or Mitsubishi?
