American electric carmaker Tesla has proved that electric cars are the future of automobiles with its cars that offer comfort and performance.
Just as things seem good to them, a company named Atieva is teasing a car with with a tagline that reads ‘challenging the idea of what a car can be'.
So what makes it more interesting is that Atieva has been started by a former Tesla employee, Bernard Tse, former Tesla VP and board member from 2003 to 2007, and Sam Weng, who is a former Oracle executive.
As Atieva's website explains that it is making a ‘breakthrough electric car in the heart of Silicon Valley', the company is on a hiring spree and has patented 100 different things to its name.
Atieva's website also assures customers saying ‘We're a car company, not a design house. And we're definitely not a traditional automaker'.
So is this a reason to worry for Tesla Motors? Only time will tell.
