The Tesla Cyberquad
Tesla, the worlds largest electric vehicle maker, has filed a trademark application with the USPTO to use the name “Cyberquad.” This application isn't for the actual ATV, but for apparel for the electric ATV. Why has Tesla decided to file a trademark for apparel for the Cyberquad? What is the Cyberquad? Let's answer these questions.
Because Tesla has filed an additional trademark for apparel for the Cyberquad, we can assume that the launch of the ATV vehicle is nearing. What would be the purpose of the apparel if not to be a way to market and create interest in the ATV itself?
The Cyberquad first appeared in late 2019 as a CyberTruck sidekick. The Cyberquad looks like a futuristic ATV with a very sleek set of flat surfaces, edges, and nice thick wheels. It was shown to drive up the CyberTruck pickup and charge right on it.
We don't know what the details are of the Cyberquad such as what kind of battery it will have, range, top speed, etc... but hopefully all of that changes soon.
With the CyberTruck launching in late 2022, it seems very apparent that the Cyberquad will be an add-on purchase for the CyberTruck.
What Else Is Going On?
Details shared by Tesla have been sparse for the Cyberquad. Tesla applied for the trademark for the ATV in September of 2019 and did so under these 6 different classes:
Vehicles, Electrical Apparatus, Machines and Supplies, Cutlery, Machinery, Tools, and Parts Thereof, Filters and Refrigerators, Belting, Hose, Machinery Packing and Non-Metallic Tires, and Dental, Medical, and Surgical Appliances.
Does Tesla plan to have the Cyberquad be an all-purpose utility vehicle with mobile properties that can do a variety of things including storing food? Time will tell...
Elon Musk has said that the Cyberquad will be a two-person ATV and would come as an option with the CyberTruck. With the CyberTruck not releasing until late 2022. It seems likely that Tesla will release the Cyberquad before then to create interest so that when the CyberTruck comes, people will have more incentive to buy it.
As for the trademark wording for the Cyberquad apparel, it is this: It is "intended to cover the categories of clothing, namely t-shirts, shirts, jackets; hats; infant wear; footwear; pants."
I'm predicting that we will see the Cyberquad unveiled at Tesla's next big event, possibly the 2021 shareholder meeting.
What do you think of the trademark for Cyberquad apparel? Is this to create interest for the Cyberquad, which will be released soon? Or is there some other reason?
