Jon Wagner, Tesla’s director of battery engineering has left the company to start his own business, according to his LinkedIn page.
The timeline of his departure is not known.
Wagner, who joined the company in January 2013, was involved in developing technology for all of Tesla’s cars.
Tesla has had trouble of late ramping up production of the Model 3, due in part to problems at the Gigafactory.

(Reuters) – Tesla’s director of battery engineering, Jon Wagner has left the electric car manufacturer, according to his LinkedIn profile.

According to Wagner’s LinkedIn page, he is launching a battery and powertrain startup in California. The timeline of his departure is not known.

Wagner, who joined the company in January 2013, was involved in developing technology for all of Tesla’s cars, as well as the Powerwall, according to his profile.

Last week, Tesla pushed back its target for volume production on its new Model 3 sedan by about three months, saying it was difficult to predict how long it would take to fix production bottlenecks.

Tesla had also said that the main constraint was its battery module assembly line at its Nevada Gigafactory, where the company had to redesign part of the production process.

Tesla and Wagner did not respond to requests for comment.
