According to Tesla, Jan Oehmicke, the director of the European activities of the brand, did not leave because of an argument with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Yesterday, the generally well-established WirtschaftsWoche wrote that disagreement between the two gentlemen about the messy launch of the Tesla Model 3 on the European market would be the basis for Oehmicke’s departure.

This introduction was accompanied by delivery problems, which forced Tesla to record significant losses in the first quarter.

A Tesla spokesperson now tells RTL Z that this is “factually incorrect.” She does confirm that Oehmicke has left. Why the Tesla’s EU boss is gone and whether there was disagreement between Oehmicke and Musk does not mean. “We will not go into this further.”

Exodus at the top

Oehmicke joined Tesla in July last year. He previously worked for BMW for almost twenty years. He is the umpteenth driver who leaves the company in a short time.

Steven MacManus, as vice president responsible for interior and exterior design at the company, has also resigned according to Business Insider sources.

Head of production to competitor

Last week it was announced that head of production of Tesla Peter Hochholdinger is leaving. The Audi veteran makes the switch to competitor Lucid Motors, where he will work as vice president of manufacturing. Within Tesla he was the person with the most experience in the field of mass production of cars.

At Lucid, a car manufacturer from California, Hochholdinger meets several Tesla veterans. Including Peter Rawlinson, the CEO of Lucid, who was previously vice president at Tesla and chief engineer of the Model S. Other drivers have also left the car manufacturer recently.

Race up

Although it is rumbling at the top at the company, there was also good news today. Tesla delivered more than 95,000 cars to customers in the second quarter, which is more than expected. Investors seem delighted with that news. Voorbeurs the share at the time of writing is almost 7.5 percent higher.

The Tesla Model 3 now seems to be well received in our country. The model was the most sold car in the Netherlands in June.
