BREAKING: Faraday Future Chief Battery Engineer Leaves Company
Faraday Future has a much-anticipated reveal for its electric concept car set for tonight at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, but ahead of that unveiling, some potentially disturbing news has come to light.
Faraday’s chief battery engineer (engineer and designer for Faraday battery packs) Porter Harris left the company earlier this month.
Harris has assumed a role at Lotus Research and Development LLC, according to his LinkedIn page.
Bloomberg reached out to both Harris and Faraday for comment. Here’s what Bloomberg stated:
“Harris did not return a call or email seeking comment. A spokeswoman for Faraday also did not return a call and a text message seeking comment.”
“Faraday hired Harris from Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, the rocket company led by Tesla Motors Inc.’s Elon Musk. Harris worked at Faraday for 15 months.”
Below you’ll find background information on Harris, including his skills related to battery technology and assembly.
