Ex-Teslans Hired For ‘Special Project’ of Apple

Lately, Apple has been hiring, former as well as current Tesla employees to join its company

Adding another one of Tesla employees to its team, Apple has hired Michael Schwekutsch, former Vice President of the electric powertrains at Tesla as the Senior Director of Engineering in its “Special Project Group”.

Schwekutsch would join back Doug Field, a long-time engineering executive at Tesla who in 2018 joined Apple to lead its electric car project code named Titan.

Apple has already shifted over 200 employees from Titan to other teams earlier in January, according to the media reports.

“Now that Schwekutsch — who has exclusively worked on electric powertrains over the last decade — has joined Apple, it is becoming clear that the company plans to bring a complete electric vehicle into the market,” Electrik reported.

At Tesla, Schwekutsch worked on the development of edge Drive Systems like the one of the Tesla Roadster II and Tesla Truck.

He also managed programmes for the electric and hybrid powertrains of the BMW i8, Porsche 918 Spyder, Fiat 500eV, Volvo XC90, among other popular vehicles.
