Toyota’s Name is now Involved with Apple Car Development

Apparently now focus on consumers, the Apple Car could be built by Toyota


  • Stories about the Apple Car began back in 2014.

  • Numerous automakers have been in discussions with Apple including Hyundai and Nissan.


We suppose we should not be surprised that stories about the Apple Car, its development, and who will build it have been dragging on for more than seven years. Automakers often make us wait six or even ten years between a concept’s introduction and the final production version. And in this case, Apple’s still looking for someone to assemble the “Car” and now Toyota’s involved.

Apple’s Autonomous EV Is Five To Seven Years Away

Over the last nine months alone, Kia, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Magna have surfaced as potential suitors in Apple’s ongoing search for someone to build their Car. South Korea’s SK Group and LG Electronics were most recently mentioned as being on the increasingly growing list of options. We can now add Toyota to that list according to MacRumors.

There’s something right about an Apple-Toyota marriage. We can imagine a well-built Toyota vehicle with Apple infotainment and tech, and it reads as being a very desirable pairing.

Back in January, it was reported that the Apple Car was still five to seven years away. If Apple can’t find a partner soon, it might take longer than that.
