Aptera is making more changes than adding side mirrors to the 2e. The company announced two new members of the management team today: Tom Reichenbach, formerly of Ford, and David Oakley, formerly at Callaway Golf. Aptera's official statement says these men fit the plan to hire "the brightest minds from all industries" and they bring specific strengths to the new company.
Reichenbach's 26-year Ford experience includes developing on-board electronic systems and the first fuel injection system on a Champ Car. He also did a lot of work with Ford Racing, something that Aptera President and CEO Paul Wilbur said, "will be invaluable as we begin the climb to the top of the electric and hybrid vehicle industry." Oakley worked on, "manufacturing, supply-chain, engineering, quality, facilities, and distribution and warehousing" for Calloway and it's his experience in refining the production steps that got him hired.
