Apple is working on a revolutionary self-driving electric car

Apple is working on a revolutionary self-driving electric car. This project dates back to the early 2000s when the big brand’s aim was to produce an out-of-the-ordinary vehicle. Steve Jobs, however, decided to shelve the project and focus on the smartphone par excellence: the iPhone.
According to Bloomberg, the Cupertino-based company would like to launch the tentatively-named iCar or Apple Car in 2025. The company’s goal? Presenting a revolutionary self-driving electric car with no steering wheel or pedals.
Let’s see the main features together!

Apple Car: main features and design

British vehicle leasing company Vanarama has created a 3D Apple Car model, using real patents filed by the Cupertino-based tech giant; the futuristic car’s exterior – code name “Project Titan” – will look like the Tesla CyberTruck.
The new renderings display:

  • a pillarless design of the glass cover that includes dark tinted windows, sunroof and windshields,
  • customizable rear coach doors,
  • 360-degree swivel seats,
  • eco-friendly interior finishes,
  • a Siri-connected joystick that will allow a total external control and management,
  • four-wheel steering and 300 horsepower electric motors,
  • a dashboard-spanning touchscreen display with an original infotainment operating system, obviously compatible both with iPhone and other external devices,
  • a 5G network,
  • a new battery pack that will beat Tesla’s autonomy.

Even if it is designed to be an autonomous driving car, the vehicle will still be equipped with emergency devices to allow the driver to take control in case of danger.

Apple Car: the cost and release date

The question now is: how much will the new Apple Car cost? According to Ming Chi Kuo, an expert Apple analyst this revolutionary car won’t be launched until 2025 and then the price should be between 70,000 and 80,000 dollars, with ample customization possibilities.
Plus, one of the main “Titan” objectives will be the driving range: the challenge is to reach  400 miles on a full charge, far surpassing the current competition.
In short, Apple has all the ingredients to kick off a new revolution in the automotive industry! And the countdown has just begun …
It will surely be a gem of a car to keep safe … Do you know where? In Sotefin car parks: safe, well-lit and busy areas where there is no risk of theft or vandalism!
