Apple's electric car could debut next year

According to the latest report from the Taiwanese business newspaper, it has long been rumored that Apple's electric cars could appear at least two years earlier than expected.

The report quoted a Taiwanese company as saying that the Apple electric car is expected to hit the market in the third quarter of 2021.

According to the report, Taiwanese manufacturers are already preparing to increase production of parts for Apple electric cars in the second quarter of next year. Apple is secretly testing dozens of prototypes on California roads.

Apple acquired a license to test self-driving cars from the California Automotive Division in 2017 and in the same year discovered a Lexus SUV equipped with LiDAR equipment.

Multiple sources said the electric cars will be launched between 2023 and 2025, including reliable analyst Guo Ming Chi.

According to the report, the director of a major Taiwanese manufacturing company said: Apple plans to launch in September 2021, at least two years ahead of schedule.

While anything is possible, the previous table is questionable, especially given the pandemic.

Earlier this month, a DigiTimes report stated that Apple is in preliminary negotiations with auto electronics suppliers, indicating that Apple's auto projects are still in their early stages.

The report adds that Taiwanese semiconductor maker TSMC is Apple's chipmaker partner and is working with Apple to develop chips for autonomous driving.

There have been numerous reports over the years that Apple is planning to develop a mature car or that it is committed to developing artificial intelligence and self-driving technology commonly used in cars.

John Gianandrea, Apple's head of artificial intelligence, recently led the project.

With automakers typically announcing all new cars a few years ago, one possibility is that Apple's electric cars will be previewed but not released in late 2021.
