Ford Motor Company has filed an application to register Model T as a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Ford Authority has discovered.
Filed on December 30th, 2016, the application is assigned serial number 87285391 and specifies that the mark will be used in conjunction with “automobiles”.
The Ford Authority Take
The legendary status of the Model T name makes this trademark filing peculiar, if not highly intriguing. Though we don’t know whether the filing hints at a future Ford vehicle called Model T, it is worth noting that the automaker filed an application for Model E in December 2013, and rumors point to the name being reserved for a range of upcoming electric or electrified vehicles.
