Wall Street Journal tech and automotive reporter Tim Higgins has signed a contract with book publisher Doubleday to write a book about Tesla.

The book project currently does not have a working title or a publication date.

It will focus on how Tesla is trying to overhaul the automotive industry with its electric cars.

Higgins was hired by the Journal in August 2016 after working for Bloomberg News in its Washington bureau and covering Apple. He is based in San Francisco.

Prior to joining Bloomberg in 2010, Higgins covered autos for the Detroit Free Press and politics for the Des Moines Register.

Higgins has won several awards from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers and has been a five-time finalist for the Livingston Awards, including for breaking the news that GM would name Mary Barra as the first female CEO of a global automaker.
