And also it needs to still be called PowerBase, considering that General Motors has currently filed a main trademark application for the name.
The US Patent and Hallmark Workplace lists the application as submitted by General Motors on January 3, defined just as a power inverter for usage in a motor vehicle ashore. This set is a bit strange, as we generally see trademark applications long before the trademark gets in use, if ever. 2 days after this declaring, the Chevrolet Silverado EV debuted to the world as well as the PowerBase charging system featured plainly in the automaker’s pitch.
