Heute mal wieder die neuesten Gerüchte rund um das Apple Auto.
New reports from Korea’s Maeil Economic Daily indicate that Apple is establishing its own “automobile research institute” and has been pushing for the development of its vehicle on its own. Previously, Apple had been in talks with large carmakers like Toyota, BMW, Hyundai, Kia, and Nissan, all companies with a long line of automotive expertise that would assist Apple in manufacturing, research, and development. Apple favored a partnership previously, but now things seem to be delayed due to production bottlenecks across the board, which has Apple in a difficult situation.
As a result, Apple wants to get the project rolling, and it seems the quickest way to get started is to develop the vehicle and all of its technologies in-house.
A source that spoke to Maeil stated that Apple sent a Request for Quotation (RFQ) to global auto parts suppliers while simultaneously restoring a lab built for vehicle development. The RFQ stated that the supplier would be selected soon.
