Reuters: Apple’s Car is Driverless
Ryan Simmons / 6 years ago
Following on from yesterday’s confirmation from The Wall Street Journal that Apple is indeed working on a car, Reuters has pitched in today with its suggestion that the car is driverless. The WSJ actually claimed the opposite of that suggesting the vehicle will be something more in line with Tesla’s offerings, but Reuters claims oppose that, falling more in line with earlier rumours, and of course that sighting of an Apple-leased vehicle.
The report says that Apple is not actively engaged with the automotive industry, they say that the company is instead developing the car on its own.
The Cupertino, California-based maker of phones, computers and watches is exploring how to make an entire vehicle, not just designing automotive software or individual components, the source said.
“They don’t appear to want a lot of help from carmakers,” the source, who declined to be named, said.
These claims from both publications are unprecedented, as they make it clear that Apple is certainly doing something that points to the development of a car.
