According to AutoblogGreen, ousted Tesla co-founder Martin Eberhard has confirmed he is indeed working on Volkswagen of America’s EV lineup.
The rumor was first reported back in March of 2009 by a Tesla employee who remains anonymous. Since then, Eberhard’s defamation/breach of contract suit against the company has ended. The dispute was with Tesla’s major financial backer and current CEO, Elon Musk.
Eberhard declined to provide any real details other than saying, ” my interests have not changed a lot.” He will be working in VW’s Palo Alto location, not far from where Tesla plans to relocate this year.
