Apple’s capability access into the electric car marketplace has provoked fevered speculation,with conflicting reports that the company is making some kind of electric minivan, andThat it plans on challenging Google and Uber in making a self-riding car.
A minimum of, it has poached a bunch of auto and battery engineers. Something it ends up doing, it might end up borrowing substantially from what BMW is building. Apple CEO Tim Cook and other executives reportedly met with BMW counterparts in Leipzig to visit the production line of the company’s i3 electric car, according to Germany’s Manager Magazin (link in German, via 9To5Mac).
The magazine reports that Apple is interested in the car’s carbon fiber body, and that negotiations have been ongoing since the fall of 2014, but that no deal is in place.The i3 is a high-tech and very well regarded compact electric car, and is BMW’s first all electric effort.
Manager Magazin is well seemed, however as with whatever having to do with Apple’s foray into the auto marketplace, difficult statistics are difficult to come with the aid of. Or even if BMW has a hand inside the body, production, or propulsion of the vehicle, it’s a safe bet that anything Apple produces will be very, very different from the i3 on the road today.
