Faraday Future loses EV pioneer amid layoffs

Peter Savagian, a former chief engineer of General Motors’ famous (and ill-fated) EV1 electric car, has left his job as senior vice president at Faraday Future, two sources tell The Verge. The news comes one week after the electric car startup announced layoffs and salary cuts as a result of a fallout with China’s Evergrande Group, which is Faraday Future’s main investor.

Reached by phone Monday, Savagian declined to comment. A representative for Faraday Future did not return requests for comment.
