As for the "Team Edison" naming, I think it's clearly meant to draw comparison to the competition that existed between Edison and Tesla in their heyday, and point clearly to whom they're in fact focused on! I approve!
Ford family shareholders aren't going to allow any new brand take the lead, period. This has to be an internal development code. The words "Skunk Works" never showed up on any Lockheed aircraft.

Edison vs. Tesla; PRICELESS!
