Reports suggest that Apple is developing an electric iCar to rival Tesla. With reports that Apple is now focusing on an autonomous driving system، is Apple still manufacturing an iCar، and when will the iCar be launched? We look at all the evidence. Latest: Apple pens letter to US transport regulators.
Since February 2015، there have been various reports that Apple is working on a car that will "give Tesla a run for its money" after Business Insider spoke to an Apple employee with knowledge of the subject. This، coupled with sightings of cars registered to Apple، clad with sensorscameras (which were later debunked)، got everyone talking about the prospects of an Apple Car، or iCar.
The iCar project is codenamed 'Titan'، according to The Wall Street Journal، which originally stated there were "several hundred" Apple employees working on the project. With some reports describing an electric car and others describing a self-driving car، is there any truth to the claim or is it like the Apple TV set everyone was talking about a couple of years ago?
