Apple has finally started developing their own electronic vehicle without any help from any other automobile manufacturer.
The company is currently selecting final parts suppliers. Previously, they contacted car manufacturing companies like Hyundai, BMW, Nissan, and Toyota to explore joint development and contract production agreements.
They now have gone through the process of sending a Request for Proposal, Request for Information, and Request for Quotation to global automobile part manufacturers.
After Apple lost their executive in charge of the project, they hired two former Mercedes engineers who are experienced in mass production of steering, vehicles, software, dynamics and project management. It is presumed that they are hired for the 'Apple Car'.
According to reports, the specifications of the Apple Car are yet to be finalised and it is expected that the vehicle's launch time is pushed even beyond to 2028 or later.
