An executive on Apple’s car development team leaves the Project Titan team to go to Volkswagen. Here we are talking about the head of the battery development department, which is causing interest regarding the future of the whole project.
Soonho Ahn is an executive who joined apple’s team since December 2018 and had taken over the battery development department for the needs of Apple’s electric car as part of Project Titan. This news confirms that Apple is indeed trying to develop its own electric vehicle, but all these turbulences that Project Titan is facing raise many questions about its viability.
Turning to the case of Soonho Ahn, he announced the career change, with his move to the position of Chief Technology Officer in the battery division of the Volkswagen AG group starting in November 2021.
On the other hand, it’s not the first executive departure, we learn from Apple’s Project Titan.
