FCA seeks to trademark ‘Angel’, application has been filed at US Patent and Trademark Office

This year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles released the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, joining another creation from hell, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. Just recently though, speculations have surfaced that FCA might develop a creation from a place opposite of hell: heaven. This comes as FCA apparently applied to trademark the name “Angel” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

As revealed by Fiat Chrysler Authority, FCA applied on July 17, 2017 for the name “Angel” as a trademark to be used for motor vehicles, including passenger automobiles as well as their structural parts, trim, and badges.

The Demon is practically a super-muscle car for FCA’s Dodge brand. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Demon V8 engine that could deliver, as standard, 808 horsepower of max output and 717 lb.-ft. of peak torque. A personalized and serialized Demon Crate could unleash the full potential of this Demon V8 engine to 840 hp of max output and 770 lb.-ft. of peak torque. This V8 engine is matched to a TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission. With its looks and power source, the Demon is definitely a hellish ride.

Aston Martin files trademark for Norse term Valhalla as name for new car

At Aston Martin, there is the Valkyrie. In the near future, there might also be a Valhalla. Another name that starts with letter “V,” the Valhalla has just been reserved as a name that Aston Martin for a possible new car, after the British carmaker filed a trademark application for the name.

Aston Martin filed the trademark application with the World Intellectual Property organization. According to the application, the named “Valhalla” will be used on “passenger cars and racing cars and parts and fittings therefor,” among other types of vehicles. It was Autoguide that first discovered the trademark application, which was filed by Aston Martin on Oct. 12, 2018.

The use of names derived from Norse mythology is nothing new to Aston Martin. The AM-RB 001 hypercar – a joint project of Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies – was a codename used before the carmaker eventually baptized the new hypercar as the Aston Martin Valkyrie. In Norse mythology, Odin -- the god of war and death and chief of Aesir gods – keeps a group of female helping spirits called Valkyries.

Toyota applies trademark application for GR 86 and GR Yaris names in Europe

Toyota sports car fans and enthusiasts are getting excited about the possibility that the Japanese carmaker would be releasing a new Toyota GR 86 and a new Toyota Yaris GR 86. This comes after Toyota filed an application to trademark the GR 86 and GR Yaris with the European Trademark and Design Network.

The trademark filing for the GR 86 and the GR Yaris names was made with the Swiss trademark office on September 18, 2018. However, the European Trademark and Design Network hasn’t approved Toyota’s registration application as of this writing.

It was a year ago when Toyota made public its plans to its new "GR" sports car series. GR stands for Gazoo Racing that the Japanese carmaker is positioning as its performance brand. Gazoo Racing is a company within Toyota that is in charge of refining its cars while training its staff via world-renowned motor sports activities like the 24 Hours of Nürburgring and the All-Japan Rally Championship. Toyota’s new GR sports car series are meant to be the product of the knowledge, expertise and experience earned from participating in motor sports activities.

BMW files trademark for M7 moniker

On April 27, 2018, BMW reportedly filed paperwork with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to secure the rights for the M7 moniker. Come to think of it, it has become apparent that the name is very important to the automaker. So do you think they are saving the name for a high performance production vehicle or are they just keeping it from being used by other automakers?

Here is the thing, the automaker had just applied for the name but this does not necessarily mean that the request will be granted by the USPTO. The process to reserve a name can be quite slow as well. An example would be when Ford made a filing for the Maverick nameplate to see if other automakers would oppose the automaker’s use of the name.

In fact, BMW actually already had rights to the M7 name in the United States in the past, and that was not too long ago - from April 24, 2012 up until April 24, 2018. The USPTO had given the automaker rights to renew this application, but what was odd was BMW waited three days after the rights lapsed before filing new paperwork. It would have been much simpler to file the renewal papers.

Mercedes-Benz recently filed trademarks for a number of model names, suggesting that the automaker has plans to revise model names to denote their latest powertrains. But then, these registrations can’t be taken as an assurance that the automakers will actually use them. However, in this case, we have heard rumours about the automaker’s future that support the reports.

It was last September 24 that the automaker’s parent company, Daimler, filed for all these trademarks in Germany. And it was a month and a half later, December 8 when the patent and trademark office made these official and public. Automotive blog, Auto Guide, then learned about this when the automaker submitted paperwork for most of these names on January 22, 2018, in Canada.

As mentioned earlier, we think that the 73 moniker will be used by Mercedes-AMG for a version of the 4.0 liter biturbo V8 with the addition of the plug in hybrid parts. The 73 is said to be capable of giving out 800 horsepower (597 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-metres) of torque.

For the past several years, BMW has been working on electric mobility, or electrifying their current models. This is why the German automaker has trademarked a range of “i” nameplates for their future lineup of electric models. One of the latest models would be the “iX3trademark that suggests that BMW’s best-selling SUV will be the first of many in a long lineup of EVs.

AutoExpress just said that BMW has filed the trademark of the iX3 name earlier this month, and it will be joined by a range of i-badged trademarks that already exist, such as the iX1, the iX9, and everything in between. Without a doubt, the iX3 nameplate will be seen on the back of the BMW’s electric X3. It is currently the only fully electric SUV that the company has confirmed for production by far, and according to the automaker, this model should be out sometime in 2019.

Other models that will join the iX3 would be the upcoming i5, which was first previewed to us by the Vision Dynamics Concept. The German company plans to schedule the production of this model in 2020 to rival Tesla’s Model S, with its 373-mile range. Keeping their hopes up, they expect these two models to make up as much as 25 percent of their overall sales by 2025. In 2017 alone, BMW has plans on selling 100,000 plug-in hybrid cars, alongside an overall cumulative sales figure of around 200,000 vehicles.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon owners are in for a special treat after Dodge has recently announced that it is making their cars extra special by offering exclusive aftermarket car accessories. Included in the collection are some fancy car covers, a leather-bound track manual and the optionally available street tires for drag performance enthusiasts.

The Pirelli performance tires which come in the sizes of 305/35ZR20 will be wrapped on the 20-inch standard wheels that suit the Challenger Hellcat’s Widebody set-up. The package is only offered on the Dodge Demon which is available for purchase through Mopar Performance Parts and Accessories. Given that the stock drag radials may also be prone to damage especially in colder climates, having an extra set of high performance tires is not far from being a necessity.

Among the aftermarket products currently available are Mopar’s rear seat delete package which gives the owners the option to remove the rear seat if they initially availed the Demon to come with the rear seat. This may sound simple but the package offers all the necessary parts and hardware that would have been used in the first place had the customer chose the Demon without the rear seat ready.

With all the hype surrounding the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, it seems that it will be one of the most successful vehicles from the automaker even before it hits the production line.

Dodge never doubted that people would be lining up to purchase the 840 horsepower (626 kilowatt) muscle car. But now, the automaker is pleased to reveal that the Challenger SRT Demon is getting so much attention that its capability to attract customers has trickled down to the other mainstream versions of the Challenger.

FCA's North American passenger car brands said to The Detroit News that the first ever Demon has not been built yet, but the public has been talking about the car since January this year. Moreover, all this hype has pushed sales of the Challenger up and through the roof, and that the automaker has broken sales records this year, said Tim Kuniskis.

Back in 2013, Nissan introduced the IDx Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. When the audience first saw this, a lot of people got excited to see a lightweight sports car as part of the Nissan's lineup – particularly one that’s even lighter than the outgoing 370Z. The Japanese company eventually said that we should not expect a rear-wheel drive model, but instead it will preview the brand's future direction in terms of design.

A few years later, Nissan finally comes back with what seems like a preview of a production model of the IDx. Furthermore, the company has recently filed a patent under the name "NISSAN IMX" that will be used for a production model, according to sources. That's not all, the trademark filing said that this will be used on "electric vehicles" and "sports cars". You may want to check out the complete patent description online. But here are some details you might want to know.

The name will be used on vehicles for locomotion by land, air, water, or rail. This includes electric vehicles like electric automobiles, wagons, trucks, vans, SUVs, buses. Apart from that, recreational vehicles like campers, motor homes and trailers are also included. Moreover, sports cars, racing cars, bicycles, lorries, and fork lift trucks like tractors were part of the list too. But that is not all, Nissan also included structural parts and fittings like brake pads, vehicle bumpers and safety devices (for land vehicles). These include airbags, mudguards, air pumps and license plate frames.

A Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is seen running amok in the streets of Pittsburgh from the new Pennzoil ad. “Exorcising the Demon”, as the video title shows, features Rhys Millen and the 840hp Dodge Challenger SRT. To some it may appear as if the high performance synthetic oil brand only wants us to marvel at how the American muscle car can actually drift and perform stunts. Still, the video is incredibly thrilling to watch. It leaves no doubt that it is indeed a stunningly powerful car.

The first part of the video was shot in what looks like a church where all of a sudden there are Pennzoil containers mysteriously falling off the shelves. At some point, you will see a shadowy figure (or what must be a guy wearing a hood) before the video finally takes you to the real action.

The Demon will be seen flying off the bridges and going down an empty tunnel in what seemed like a Hollywood action film. With the 840hp 6.2-liter V8, we think the Demon has more than enough power to drift and drag anywhere it pleases. Overall, Penzzoil effortlessly demonstrates the wild side of the Demon though it is actually designed for the drag strip.

This month, a new patent was registered by Nissan Malaysia's patent office under the name "Terra". This patent suggests that a new electric SUV/CUV by the Japanese automaker may be on its way. Just after the company announced the Nissan LEAF, we hear about the Terra, so we are thinking that this might be the five-door hatchback model that the company will be developing next.

This is because back in 2012, Nissan had already presented a concept they called the Terra at the Paris Motor Show. This was a hydrogen fuel cell concept that carried a Nissan LEAF powertrain. Now that there's a patent for it, people are assuming that the Nissan Terra will be an all-electric model, similar to the Nissan LEAF. But it might get a second electric motor on the rear to make it an all-wheel drive setup. The fact that Nissan is sharing development costs between several vehicles is quite smart. That’s what they’re doing for their electric vehicles including the LEAF, the e-NV200, and most likely the Terra EV.

You may be wondering why the patent was registered in Malaysia, instead of a country that's closer to the brand like Japan or the US. This is probably because large companies like Nissan want to avoid making too much noise about their strategies. That’s why they didn’t file the application at a nearer or larger patent office. Too bad Autocar was able to track the registry almost instantly.

Following the premiere of the Q8 Concept in January, Audi has finally registered the Q8 at the EUIPO. The automaker from Ingolstadt has recently also filed a trademark application for an RS model. Registered under vehicles and means of transport, Audi appears to be focused on increasing its SUV portfolio even after the Q2’s recent launch. EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) officials are now examining the RS Q8 application.

To those who still could not believe that a new RS badged-SUV is already brewing, it can be recalled that Stephan Winkelmann, Audi Sport’s chief has previously confirmed that more SUVs will be receiving the RS badge in the coming years. Concerning the future of Audi Sport, Winkelmann had also said that the SUVs should have other important aspects as well such as safety, quality and comfort.

Due to the growing market for high performance SUVs, Audi it seems is only doing what is reasonable and that is by fulfilling the demands of their consumers, regardless if the R8 Supercar is more in demand according to their own studies.

When a company files a trademark application for a certain name, it usually means that it wants to exclusively use such moniker and effectively prevent others from using it. Of course, there are a number of other reasons why a company would apply for a patent. Just recently, Swedish auto maker Volvo filed a trademark application for the name “S50,” sparking several hypotheses on the company’s future plans.

The filing of a trademark for the “S50” name could that Volvo is planning to create a new product. It could be a future product being conceptualized or even a vehicle that is already in the works. For such a new product to use the S50 name, Volvo would want to keep the moniker from being used by other carmakers.

Volvo has never used the name “S50” to name its products. If we look at how the brand typically names its models, an S means that it would be sedan, with V standing for a wagon and XC for a sports utility vehicle. This was made clear especially with the carmaker’s new 90 series, with the S90 being a sedan, the V90 a wagon and the XC90 an SUV. It would only be logical to assume that a future product is in the concept or in the works, in the form of a sedan and it would be called the Volvo S50.

Earlier this month, we were getting hints that Hyundai, along with its sister company Genesis, isn’t doing so well in the United States as well as in Europe. So this news may be a surprise for some. It looks like Genesis has plans on expanding its portfolio, and we mean adding many new models including the G70, at least one coupe, and an SUV.

Currently, the Korean luxury car maker carries the G90 and the G80 sedans in its lineup. And according to Motor Authority, Genesis has filed trademarks with the United Stated Patent and Trademark Office. Some of which are coupes under the names GT60, GT70, GT80 and GT90 - and all these have already been reserved for the company. It seems like they will be using “GT” for their coupes instead.

Back in 2016, the company had a leaked product roadmap that indicates their plan to release six distinct models by year 2020. And as of 2017, it already has three which are the aforementioned G90, G80, and the G70 sedans. This means that there will be three more that we should expect, and these are likely to be two SUVs (a small and a midsize), and a small sports coupe. The other coupes will have to wait until after 2020.

Good news for 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon buyers, as insurance company Hagerty will make sure they are covered. The company will be offering an insurance package for the owners across the United States and Canada, numbering 3,000 for the U.S. group and 300 for those in Canada.

Just like with any other vehicles that Hagerty covers, Dodge Chalenger SRT Demon owners will get the same Guaranteed Value policy. This means that from the time the policy has been issued, the vehicle’s value will depend on how much it has been used or driven, and will not be established only when the car gets into a collision. By doing so, this eliminates negotiations and arguments over what the car’s value will be in years to come.

Tim Kuniskis, the Head of FCA’s Passenger Car Brands in North America, said that they want to ensure that the owners of these cars have the insurance they need to feel safe whenever they bring the car out on the street. And so Demon owners will be able to make the most out of their car’s performance.

Dodge has made it clear to everyone, including its potential buyers, that the Challenger SRT Demon is a street-legal drag car - that it is unlike any of your ordinary cars, as its name indicates. In fact, most photos that we see of the Demon shows it parked on the drag strip. Plus, knowing that it has an 840 horsepower (626 kilowatt) engine and drag radials standard should be more than enough to deliver the message to the audience.

However, the company probably realised that despite all the warnings and precautions they have given to the people, they will not be in control of what their buyers will do to the car. It wants to make sure that the new owners know exactly what they’re getting with the Challenger SRT Demon. And with good reason too. With the car’s menacing nature, it is not impossible that a few will get into accidents if the car isn’t handled with care.

The company ensures that they’ll stay out of trouble in case anything happens by providing a waiver for buyers to sign as they order their vehicles. The three-page Demon Disclosure Form states everything that comes with a car as dangerous as this. Jalopnik was able to acquire the document which states points like “Customer shall never use any “Track-Use” features on public roads or any prohibited area”.

The wait is finally over for Dodge enthusiasts; the company will be taking orders for the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon this Wednesday, 21 June. The model will have an asking price of $86,090, including gas tax and destination. For those who take orders this week, expect to get your car this fall.

Dodge said in the press announcement that the company has developed a unique ordering process for the Demon, hoping to prevent speculators from selling the model for much higher prices. Examples of the muscle car that will be sold at or below the MSRP, will receive a lower serial number and also get priority scheduling. Meanwhile, those Demons that will be sold higher than the MSRP will have to wait until after the priority production has been completed.

As you all know, the Dodge SRT Challenger Demon is limited to only 3,000 units in the United States, plus an additional 300 units for the Canadian market. Each one of the Demons will have a serial number that indicates its place in the production order. So far, the company has only planned to build a single model year for it.

It looks like no one is allowed to use the name TJ Cruiser except for Japanese automobile magnate, Toyota. Yes, you read it right. The name TJ Cruiser is already trademarked by Toyota and will soon be used in the production version of the FT-4X Concept.

The trademark, which was filed under the United States Patent Trademark Office, covers the “automobiles and structural parts thereof” – meaning, like all other patents, everything in the TJ Cruiser belongs to Toyota. The TJ Cruiser is actually a cheaper version of the FJ Cruiser which has been recently phased out.

While the Toyota FJ Cruiser gained fans quickly after going into production (aside from being the successor of the also popular J40 Land Cruiser), after ten years, sales started to decline and a redesign wasn’t the most practical way to go. Of course, fans were bummed but nothing’s forever in this world, and so Toyota had to move on from the success that was the FJ Cruiser. Now, the Japanese automaker is bent on diverging from the “boring” cars and creating a more interesting vehicle such as the FT-4X.

A bevy of cool facts is now out in the open to help us get more acquainted with the new Dodge Challenger DRT Demon. But while most have already heard about its 840hp and its 2.3-second acceleration to get from zero to 60, there are a few other details we might not have heard about. In a recent interview with the press, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis has let out more information about the project. Among them is the stock version’s ability to break the 10-second barrier sans the 100 high octane race fuel.

Starting with the Demon’s V-8 cooling system, we learned that it is actually capable of rejecting 258kW of heat at rated power. The radiator’s heat rejection is equivalent to 250 oven toasters - the same amount of heat required when you need to boil 1 quart of water in a room temperature within 1.2 seconds.

It was also revealed that the Demon’s high- octane fuel can flow at a rate of 1.36 gallons per minute at rated power. In comparison, a typical shower head can flow at the rate of 2 gallons for every 60 seconds.

Another day, another news update about the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Just a few days after it was reportedly having issues with its production line, we’re back with news regarding the Demon. If you’re interested to be one of the first owners of the 3,300 units of the said model, then this surely will get your attention.

Last week, Dodge officially announced that the Challenger SRT Demon will have a price tag of $84,995. But what is interesting is that there is already an eBay listing for an example of the fastest quarter-mile production car. So, you don’t have to wait until this fall to get your hands on a $84,995 Dodge from the manufacturer, but you can instead get one for three times the price at $250,000, from the well-rated eBay seller.

The seller described the car as “by far the most powerful, mean looking, rare, and ridiculous production car ever made”. However, based on his description, we have doubts whether this guy already has the car on hand or is still waiting for his appointment at the dealership so he can order one. That is when he said that upon buying, there still has to be a discussion on the exact ordering specifications. He also said that if the purchase is made past the order date then the buyer will have to settle with the options chosen by the eBay seller.
