The American tech company is in talks with a potential partner that could help Apple build its first electric car. Currently, there are no official statements on this matter.
As reported by our overseas insiders, Apple is in talks with representatives of its potential partner who can help the tech giant create its first car. There are obviously no official announcements at this time, although the South Korean newspaper claims LG and Magna are close to signing a deal with Apple.
According to a well-known South Korean newspaper, the American company is in talks with the LG Magna e-Powertrain JV to produce the first cars for Apple.
The partnership between LG and Magna is still pending, but it is expected to reach its final stages later this year. Apple is considered its first major customer.
“LG’s Magna e-Powertrain joint venture is very close to signing an agreement with Apple representatives to develop Apple’s electric vehicle. The details of the contract have not yet been discerned, ”the publication says.
“Since the LG brand is not that strong in the global electric vehicle industry, it needs a rather competitive assistant. From this point of view, LG’s bet on the Apple EV is not so bad, and, on the contrary, is good for Apple, ”he said.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the head of Apple Tim Cook hinted at the company’s plans in the field of cars. The project of Apple’s first electric car is still alive, despite the difficulties that follow one after another. The smartphone maker continues to develop self-driving cars.
