Tesla files to trademark 'Teslaquila'

Tesla Inc. on Oct. 8 filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark "Teslaquila."

In its application, the California-based electric car company said the name will be used to label "distilled agave liquor" and "distilled blue agave liquor."

"Teslaquilla" was part of Tesla CEO Elon Musk's April Fools' tweet this year, in which he joked about Tesla going bankrupt and of him being surrounded by "Teslaquilla" bottles. "So bankrupt, you can't believe it," Musk said at that time.

Just days after the trademark application was filed, Musk tweeted to his Twitter followers, saying "Teslaquila coming soon," followed by a mockup of the Teslaquila logo.
