Ford In Ford
JUL

As a freshman in college, I knew that I would have to buy a car to get from school to music gigs. For the majority of grade school, kids in my class teased me for my last name: Ford. They would ask if I was related to Henry Ford or if my parents owned a Ford. Neither was true so then I knew that I wanted to drive a Ford. I can proudly say that my car is decorated with my name, but not only that, the car drives well and is extremely comfortable. I first test drove a Chevy Cruze and it was uncomfortable and unmanageable. Being a small woman, I needed a car that fit perfectly. As soon as I sat down, I knew it was my car. Thank you for keeping the tradition alive for wonderful automobiles for real people.

Name Ford's line of electric vehicles after Henry Ford's pal, Thomas Alva Edison?  TAE for short and pronounced "Tay".  Keep the Ford name off of the electric cars and market them as TAE.  An entry level model could be named Alva, mid level model name, Edison and the high end Milan (Thomas's birthplace).  This is a great fit, look into the friendship between Henry and Thomas and you will see what I am talking about.  These two would go on Camping trip with H. Firestone.  The name TAE may or may not be welcomed by Tesla Motors, after all Tom and Nikola had a rival relationship.  
Have you driven a TAE lately?
