Ford Isn’t Shame on Hiring Former Tesla Engineers

Ford Isn’t Shame on Hiring Former Tesla Engineers – Tesla is currently lined up as the leader of the world’s electric car company. Even some time ago, the President of the United States mentioned the word Tesla for the first time in history. Which of course marks an acknowledgment of the work of Elon Musk so far by the American President. It’s possible that success was the reason Ford “carried in” former Tesla engineers as an important part of building Ford’s electric car.

Menurut LinkedIn Clarke, dia menerima posisi itu minggu ini dan secara resmi bergabung dengan Ford di California. Di Tesla, ia menghabiskan lebih dari dua belas tahun di departemen teknik perusahaan.

Pada September 2009, ia bergabung dengan Tesla sebagai Senior Design Engineer pada proyek Model X dan Model S, termasuk proses rekayasa lanjutan untuk unit penggerak, rangkaian penggerak, distribusi tegangan, dan panel penutup untuk SUV serba listrik.

Pada Januari 2012, Clarke dipromosikan menjadi Senior Manager of New Programs Engineering, di mana dia mengawasi rekayasa dan pengembangan prototipe canggih dan model masa depan di Tesla’s Los Angeles Design and Engineering Center. Dia kemudian pindah ke Director of New Programs Engineering hingga meninggalkan Tesla pada Januari 2022.

Clarke mengkonfirmasi kepindahannya ke Ford di LinkedIn-nya. Awalnya dilaporkan oleh Automotive News.

Ford has been expanding its electric vehicle project recently. This they marked when CEO Jim Farley announced that the company will aim to produce 600,000 electric vehicles in the next 22 months.

Ford, seeking to become the first legacy automaker to ramp up production of electric vehicles, also wants to invest $30 billion in EV development through 2025. Ford recently said it would restructure its EV playbook for an additional $20 billion.

Will Ford be able to compete at the top of the competition for electric car manufacturers? Or even able to replace Tesla?
