Tesla Motors is changing its name to simply Tesla. This was officially announced on February 1st.
The step is quite expected, given that the company is associated today not only with the production of cars, but also with other high-tech projects.
So, after buying Solar City Corp., Tesla also became a developer of solar panels for home and industrial use, in addition, the company is working in the field of lithium-ion batteries.
One of the reasons for the name change was that in June 2016 the company shortened its domain name. In addition, many well-known companies at a certain stage of their development acted in the same way and simplified their name to one word. So, Apple was once called Apple Computer, and Starbucks was called Starbucks Coffee, Tea and Spice.
This American company was born in 2003, its founders were Elon Musk, Martin Eberhard, JB Strobel and Mark Tarpennin.
