Following Tesla’s “S☰XY” Plan Outline … What Comes After The Model Y?

As many of you reading this are probably aware, Tesla’s original plan called for the release of a Model S, a Model E, a Model X, and a Model Y — a “SEXY” lineup, in other words. I suppose that company execs may have been a bit tipsy (or maybe just overworked and tired) during that brainstorming session, but it is certainly a catchy idea.

The company’s plans required some modification, though, as Ford was apparently unwilling to give up its “rights” to the Model E name — leaving Tesla to improvise and use the ☰ (3) symbol instead. S☰XY may well be an improvement, though — I prefer the look.

Going by Tesla’s recently revealed plans for a semi-truck, a pickup truck, etc., things clearly aren’t going to end with the upcoming Model Y CUV. So, what comes next? How can the company build on the S☰XY lineup name?

1Wes!” on the Tesla Motors Club forum recently mused on this philosophically important question, stating: “So after the model Y, there’s plans for a minibus and a freight truck. What’s more appropriate than S☰XY MF?”

“S☰XY MOFO” perhaps?

My vote is for S☰XY MOFO.

Apparently, though, I’m too late — commentator “Cobbler” slyly “revealed” that:

Musk already confirmed:
E (model 3)
Y (suv on 3 platform)

B (bus on X-platform)
I (interceptor, high speed heavy armored vehicle for police forces)
T (truck, Ford F-150 alternative)
C (convertible, based on roadster)
H (Hovercraft, An ode to his love for James Bond)
