Nice one Dabsy
Close, but no cigar.
When Serbian (or anybody else on the Balkans north of the Greek border) thinks of Tesla, the options are actually in THIS ORDER:
1. https://sr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A2%D0%B5%D1%81%D0%BB%D0%B0_(%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%BA%D0%B0) - carpentry instrument and colloquial for F***up (something that involves a destructive fix +/- percussive maintenance).
2. Nicola Tesla
3. Battery driven car selling which on the Balkans beats the NoVa and Pajero for Spanish countries as far as marketing is concerned due to 1. Specifically, the colloquial meaning.
