Apple Now to Develop and Produce the Apple Car Alone

Apple is now getting ready to produce its Apple Car by itself

  • Partnership projects with BMW, Hyundai, Nissan and Toyota were unsuccessful

  • Apple is reportedly talking to parts suppliers directly

  • The Apple Car is said to be unveiled in 2024 with production beginning the next year

Apple has been looking for an automaker to build its projected Apple Car for a few years now, but unsuccessful talks with many manufacturers mean the company is now willing to continue alone with development and production.

No later than last week, rumours had it that Toyota would be the one to manufacture the final product, but apparently the two companies couldn’t reach an agreement.

Apple is said to be building its own research and development team as well as inquiring about parts from various automotive suppliers, which leads to believe the tech company is serious about this project.

There is also change in the team responsible for the Apple car, since earlier in September, Doug Field, the head of the car project, moved to Ford. He was replaced by Kevin Lynch who has been Apple’s vice president of technology since 2013.

The Apple Car is supposed to be launched in 2024 with production starting in 2025, however, the public might not be able to buy it then, or ever.

Indeed, a report published in February indicated the car could be an autonomous vehicle made for ʺlast mileʺ trips, making it well suited to applications such as a shuttle between an airport and a major point of interest or a light delivery service, for example.
