Company’s TeslaMotors.com web address now forwards to Tesla.com.
In February, Domain Name Wire broke the news that car maker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) had finally acquired the domain name Tesla.com.
Its main website has long been TeslaMotors.com, a domain name it had to settle on because Tesla.com was registered way back in 1992.
After acquiring the Tesla.com domain name earlier this year, it forwarded it to TeslaMotors.com. Now it’s the other way around: Tesla.com recently became the company’s official web address.
The move comes at Tesla moves beyond just selling cars. In addition to its Powerwall home battery system, the company has proposed an acquisition of solar power company SolarCity.
I still go to tsla.com. I wonder when they acquired that?
That missing E will cost you $10M.

We are in 2016, I would have gone for http://www.tesla.cars
Andrew Allemann says
As much as you want to promote a new TLD, that’s exactly the opposite of what Tesla is trying to do here.
Teasla motors and Tesla .cars is same, as Andrew mentioned, that would be horrible acquisition for them. Unless they got .tesla as whole line, and even then tesla.com would still be key due to traffic.
Agreed. Gtlds suck.
