This is no longer a secret: Apple is working on its own electric car. It is expected to debut in 2025.
RBC-Ukraine Auto reports this with a link to AutoEvolution.
Judging by the atmosphere of complete secrecy, the Apple Car project is a priority for the Cupertino tech giant. Despite the veil of secrecy surrounding the project, experts from Vanarama managed to visualize the future novelty based on numerous patents registered by Apple.
As you can see from the published renders, the main idea of the Apple car is total digitalization. In fact, the entire interior of the car is a multitude of displays. Which, in itself, and not uncommon today, is the mainstream trend in the modern automotive industry. But there is an interesting nuance – the driver of the Apple car will be able to adjust the position of the controls himself. It is also interesting to open the front and rear doors towards each other in order to make access to the salon more convenient, as well as turning them.
However, the competitiveness of a car on the market is determined by the advanced technologies implemented in it. And this year, Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted that the company is developing some kind of “autonomous control system”.
And then Apple replaced Christopher Moore, Tesla Autopilot software director. Moore will report on his work to Stuart Bowers, another top executive who joined Apple from Tesla.
Apple’s car could debut in 2025, according to Bloomberg, citing “people close to the matter,” if all goes according to plan.
Recall that due to the shortage of microcircuits, BMW began to produce cars without touch screens. This forced step has been taken to maintain the current level of production.
