Uniti snags electric car expert from Jaguar

Uniti Sweden has hired electric car expert Sally Povolotsky to lead the continued development of its city EV, the Uniti One as the company's Vehicle Development Director. Povolotsky held similar roles working with the likes of Jaguar Land Rover on special projects and EV vehicle development.
Sally Povolotsky joins Uniti with more than 15 years of experience in the automotive industry, from advanced engineering to product strategy and commercial development for numerous initiatives. She has achieved particular success in “special projects” during her time working with Jaguar Land Rover among other manufacturers as concept and project lead for several electrification projects.

“It’s an exciting time to be at the start of an engine and powertrain revolution, challenging the norm to power the future,” says Povolotsky in a press release. “Uniti is pushing the boundaries by leaping ahead of dated automotive processes. I feel refuelled and energised to join this innovative team.”

Due to high vehicle demand (over EUR 70 million in pre-order value), Uniti has made moves to ensure the quickest possible availability to pre-order customers throughout northern Europe while establishing the supply chain and production partnerships necessary to rapidly scale operations after 2019. Key partnerships include Siemens, whose PLM suite will be used to minimise waste and reduce time to market. Povolotsky will take lead in managing theses vital relationships.

“We have a long way to go towards our production model, certification, and the delivery of our first cars, but the commitment the market has already shown for our product and our brand goes a long way to accelerate this process” says Lewis Horne, Uniti CEO, in the release..

“We’ve optimised our organization toward getting our production cars done and delivered," Lewis Horne adds. “I have utmost confidence in Sally and her engineering team to keep us on track to show both the 2 and 4-seat production models on time next year.”
