Traveling to South Korea by Apple Car
The development of the future Apple Car, shrouded in the greatest possible secrecy, continues to make us headlines. Apparently, a group of engineers belonging to the project responsible for the Apple Car visited the Asian country. There they met LG and SK Group to develop plans for the company’s future car
According to DigiTimes, meetings are part of the search for partners and manufacturers be part of the Apple Car supply chain. A quest we have talked about in the past and which is the key to the successful launch of the autonomous vehicle.
These alleged meetings were also mentioned in Korea’s time, where a senior executive reportedly said that the Apple team was in South Korea to seek “business partners in Korea for its electric vehicle business” and that “without partnerships with Korean suppliers, Apple will not be able to carry out its electric vehicle business plan “. The executive also said that talks are “still in their infancy”
If you rule out that part of the manufacturing of the future car takes place in the United States, Apple is looking for a partner who can produce a considerable volume of vehicles for the launch. A launch which may still take place in several years, but which will undoubtedly mark a before and after on the autonomous car scene.
