Apple Car

In the last few weeks, we have published different articles in which we talked about the Apple Car employee exodus towards other companies. But nevertheless, it seems like apple is moving on With the idea of ​​building your own self-driving vehicle, at least there is no rumor to the contrary.

According to the guys from Nikkei Asia, in January 2020, an Apple employee met the Japanese manufacturer Sandem, a manufacturer of auto parts and air conditioners. At that meeting, this company had access to the plans of the vehicle and they discussed Apple's needs to carry out their project.

However, due to financial difficulties aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Japanese company requested its debt restructuring from its creditors in June 2020 and, according to Nikkei Asia, the talks about the Apple Car stopped.

This publication does not do more than confirm Apple's ambitious plan Within the electric vehicle sector, a project that in recent months has seen many of its most important engineers go to other companies.

Mark Gurman, claimed in late 2021, that the Cupertino-based company wanted to step on the gas (pun intended) and launch its commitment to electric vehicles in 2025, an overly optimistic date according to a large number of analysts and to which the continuous departure of engineers has contributed.

Regarding the design of the Apple Car, at the end of 2021, a designer captured in several renderings, what Apple's electric vehicle design might look like based on patents that Apple has registered in your name in recent years, a very unattractive design.
