Tesla CEO Elon Musk's settlement with SEC approved by judge

Elon Musk files 'Teslaquila' trademark

Tesla shares rose 4 per cent to US$269.81 in morning trading.

The company will also pay a $20 million fine, despite not being charged with fraud.

Musk of Tesla and SpaceX fame simply tweeted and wrote: "Love Your Name", which is a romantic fantasy drama anime with a plot that involves body-swapping teenagers.

Tesla says the new chip, developed in-house, is the first designed specifically to run such artificial-learning neural networks and that it uses the same connectors and dimensions as the Nvidia chip the company now uses, so owners can have it swapped directly.

One thing is for certain: If this isn't all an elaborate troll (which it might be!) Elon Musk's graphic design skills still need some work.

Outside Tesla's Fremont, California factory, Mr Musk showed off the $35,000 base vehicle with a range of 350km (220 miles) on a charge that marks a departure from the company's earlier luxury electric cars.

Tesla-branded tequila was once the subject of a Twitter joke Musk posted on April Fool's Day, in reference to bankruptcy fears.

Tesla and Musk, the company's CEO, agreed to pay a total of $40 million in fines in the settlement Tuesday.

The lawsuit, which cites e-Mails and text messages between Mr. Musk and Tesla executives, quoted him as saying he thought his girlfriend, performance artist "Grimes" "would find it amusing, which admittedly is not a great reason to pick a price". Two new independent directors will be recruited to join Tesla's board of directors. The electric automaker is steadily increasing the number of Model 3's it's building each week.

CEO Elon Musk and a USA federal judge finalized an agreement Tuesday morning to settle allegations of fraud.
