The Sleek Model P Phone Channels Tesla’s Iconic Vehicles

As is the case with most revered automotive designers, there’s almost always a discipline that feels like home. For Martin Hajek, the mind behind the recent Citroen eCV concept car, that just so happens to be industrial design — a practice that lends itself perfectly the Tesla Model P phone concept.

This Tesla-branded handheld device is a return to Hajek’s mobile roots, boasting a familiar but abnormal design orientation that looks refreshing amongst the oversaturated cell-phone market. A glossy red paint, paying homage to Tesla’s iconic colorway, and an aerodynamic fin on the rear of the phone bring intentional characteristics to the Model P, referencing the company’s well-rounded vehicles. A pronounced notch and carbon fiber detailing bring the phone even closer to Tesla’s recognizable design language. While this handheld is only a concept, it’s likely a precursor to Elon Musk’s admittance into the cellular realm. After all, you’d be hard-pressed to find something of which he isn’t a part.
