A few months ago, when the first rumors began to appear about the car that Apple would intend to make, we inform you that the guys from Cupertino could use the basis of the BMW i3 to create their first vehicle. Apparently Apple would have the intention of using as a base the chassis of this electric model that hit the market a few months ago. In fact, in the fall of 2014 both companies met and tried to reach a mutual collaboration agreement, but they did not reach an agreement and the direct Apple returned from Germany without success.

The Titan project, as it has just been named hire the services of a former BMW engineer Rónán Ó Braonáin. Ronan does not come directly from BMW, but had previously worked at the Reviver company creating software to analyze the different data obtained while driving to try to improve the overall operation of the vehicles. Before working at Reviver, Rónán worked as a software engineer in a similar position at the German firm BMW. For some time now, all the big manufacturers have put the batteries to launch electric vehicles on the market where autonomy is usually the great handicap.

Until 2020, expected date for the launch of this electric vehicle manufactured by the guys from Cupertino, We are going to have to get an idea of ​​how it will be thanks to the rumors that will be filtering to date. Presumably, Apple follows the same guidelines that it used for the creation of the Apple Watch, where until a day before the presentation, no image of how the device would finally be filtered. Every time Tim Cook is asked about this project, he responds evasively, as is logical in a very long-term project of which the design of the project is still unclear.
