The Project Titan which will reportedly be the new Apple EV project has definitely turned a lot of heads over rumors that the company might be built on a certain platform that will be developed by Hyundai as well as its subsidiary Kia. What happened?
The potential deal between the Apple EV and Hyundai and Kia reportedly went from “close” to “pause” in just a matter of days. Now, the automakers release a statement saying they are no longer in talks to make the Apple EV, according to Bloomberg.
Can I get Apple car?
According to the story by Engadget, Hyundai would have reportedly provided the new electric platform built over in North America for the new Project Titan, while Apple would have reportedly worked on developing the car’s software and also its hardware. Although Hyundai had confirmed that talks did take place, it seems like things took a different turn.
Hyundai then noted that they understand that Apple is currently in discussion with quite a lot of global automakers and this includes Hyundai Motors. Production was expected to start later on by 2024 according to a certain report coming from the Korea IT News, now, the latest development is referred to as quite a letdown from that.
What happened to the Apple car?
Apple is quite famous for its privacy and is breeding certain ground for rumors, though, especially for a particular product as potentially consequential like an upcoming autonomous Apple EV. It is also still possible that the companies could have decided to keep the business talks on the down-low and they could still later on restart.
Apple car release date
Apple has also reportedly spoken to another six Japanese automakers. This was according to a recent report by Nikkei. However, another analyst Ming-chi Kuo, who reportedly has quite a record when it comes to deciphering Apple rumors, recently gave a statement to Apple Insider saying Apple is still planning to use the Hyundai E-GMP platform for the company’s very first Apple EV along with Kia manufacturing the said vehicles over in the United States no sooner than 2025.
Apple is known to be one of the most innovative companies of the last decade and with them showing interest in the EV industry, there’s probably no doubt that one way or another, the company will end up manufacturing the Apple EV or Apple car later on. While Apple is still very busy with its products like the iPhone 12 or the Apple Watch series 6, however, it looks like the company is now positively looking towards selling much more than just devices.
