They include Nick Sampson, the man previously responsible for vehicle and chassis engineering for the Tesla Model S, Richard Kim who designed the BMW i8 Concept and i3 Concept and Silva Hiti, the former lead powertrain boss for the Chevrolet Volt. Also there is Pontus Fonteus who has previously worked with Lamborghini, Ferrari and Land Rover as well as Porter Harris, a former employee with SpaceX.
