Apple’s first electric car is expected to be introduced in 2024: Apple’s plan to build a self-driving car equipped with the latest technology is making rapid progress.
There have been reports for years about Apple’s secret plan to make automatic driving or Project Titan.
But now news agency Reuters has provided some more concrete details, according to which Apple may start production of its electric vehicles by 2024.
The heart of this car will be its battery which will have a ‘revolutionary’ monocle design.
Thanks to this battery, the company will have the opportunity to add more dynamic material to power, which will provide longer distances on a single charge.
Apple is also working on the possibility of using lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry. LFP power cells are not hotter than others and do not require cobalt.
“It’s going to be brand new, just like the first time people saw it on an iPhone,” the source told Apple News, citing Apple’s battery technology.
Apple Plans First Electric Car
The car may also feature a number of lidar sensors to sense the surroundings, which were also featured in this year’s iPhone 12 Pro models.
According to the report, the car project has progressed so much that Apple has laid off 200 employees of Project Titan. The report added that the company would seek the help of an external partner to manufacture the vehicle.
The report also said that car production could be delayed until 2025 instead of 2024 due to the coronavirus epidemic.
Tesla is currently investing in the manufacture of electric vehicles and automated driving software, while other companies such as Ford and General Motors are also working to develop such vehicles. Note that Apple has never publicly acknowledged working on Titan.
