Apple Will Reportedly Sign An Autonomous Car Deal With Hyundai In March

Production would start at the Georgia-based factory of Kia. By the year 2024, around 100,000 Apple EVs will be rolled off the line

Apple and Hyundai have reached a new milestone with their electric car deal. According to Reuters, Korea IT News claimed the South Korean automaker and the Cupertino tech giant would ink their autonomous electric cars in March. And with that, production would start at the Georgia-based factory of Kia. By the year 2024, around 100,000 EVs will be rolled off the line.

The news outlet also said that the beta version for the first Apple car would be ready next year. A previous report of Reuters claimed that the iPhone maker would rely on its cutting-edge battery tech to enhance safety, extend range, and minimize the use of cobalt and LiDAR for navigation.

In response to a request for comment, Hyundai confirmed that it was in talks with the iPhone maker but it also shared the assumption that the Cupertino tech giant was also in discussion with other carmakers.

At this point, you should take everything related to an Apple car with a pinch of salt. The 2024 timeline isn’t 100% reliable either as another Korean news outlet insisted that it should be 2027. However, we are pretty sure that the company is accelerating its autonomous car project after a few troubling years.

The question here is whether Apple car can compete with other competitors on the market as companies like Tesla is moving fast with their own breakthroughs in self-driving and battery technology.
