It is common to hear that Tesla is “the Apple of cars”. Anyone who has driven one of these electric vehicles quickly realizes that the user interface and the attention to certain details instantly reminds you of the products of the Cupertino company. I myself couldn’t help but tell the salesperson after driving it that it looked like an iPad on wheels. However, today’s topic is a bit different than simple sensory issues. A former Tesla employee claims to have stolen Tesla’s autopilot code by storing it in his personal iCloud account, what will be true about it?

Currently Tesla and the former employee are in a legal proceeding, and it is that he not only stored information owned by the company, a relevant code that could change the future of the automotive industry as we know it today, but also ended up being hired by the Chinese company Xpeng, one of Tesla’s most relevant competitors in the market for electric and self-driving vehicles. Apparently, the signs lead to deals between the former employee and the Asian firm to “steal” this information from Tesla, of course it will be much cheaper than investing in R&D.

This type of crime is especially prosecuted in the United States of America and Europe, and espionage and theft of industrial information are not exactly a joke, even though in countries like China it hardly has any type of legal protection. In this way Xpeng (Xiaopeng Motors) seems to be manufacturing what would be a “clone” of the Tesla Model X, the Tesla SUV. According to The Verge, the trial between Tesla and Guangzhi Cao, the worker who uploaded Tesla’s autopilot code to his iCloud cloud, is in full swing, will Apple intervene?
