From the individual piece to series production.
Sebastian Seitz powers ahead with the further development of e-mobility. As head of the battery start-up factory, he and his team produce sophisticated battery prototypes that are used to test the technologies for next-generation electric vehicles at Mercedes-Benz. In his interview, Sebastian Seitz tells us why he loves being right at the pulse of development, what he particularly appreciates about his job as an engineer and manager, and why Mercedes-Benz is much more than an employer for him and his family.
My grandfather and my father always raved about Daimler as an employer and its commitment to building excellent vehicles. I feel the same way today.
In person: Sebastian Seitz (39) has been fascinated with machines and engines since he was a child and enjoyed helping out in the workshop with his father when he was working on the family car – a Mercedes, of course. Later, he decided to study technology management at the University of Stuttgart, from which he graduated in 2010. Today, the engineer uses his design skills and passion not only to produce the battery prototypes for the next generation of electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz, but also to build a cozy home for his family in his hometown of Esslingen am Neckar.
