Tesla co-founder Eberhard now working at Volkswagen

After a very public departure from Tesla Motors, a company he helped start, Martin Eberhard is now working for Volkswagen of America, spokesman Steve Keyes confirmed to Green Car Advisor.

Eberhard, who famously sued Tesla accusing current CEO, Elon Musk, of defamation and planning his ouster, the co-founder of the electric-vehicle maker is now working at Volkswagen of America’s California-based research and development lab in Palo Alto.

Volkswagen did not officially announce Eberhard’s appointment and Keyes said he’s not sure of what his title is at the German automaker.
