With some high profile exceptions, it is generally accepted that Apple ships some of the most reliable high-tech products out there – at least if you believe the customer satisfaction reports. Things are far murkier for Tesla in that department, especially at its relatively early age.
Last year, Consumer Reports pulled their recommendation of the Tesla Model S citing “worse-than-average” reliability issues.
It became one of Tesla’s top priority over the last year and the automaker has made some significant improvements as evidenced by the declining replacement rates for major components, thanks in part to a growing reliability and test team.
Now Electrek has learned that Tesla has found a new leader for the team by hiring Apple’s Director of Reliability Engineering.
