Apple is allegedly conversing with two different Chinese organizations about producing electric batteries that could be utilized in a future Apple Car. Both CATL and BYD are said to be in conversations with Apple.
Refering to “four people with knowledge of the matter,” Reuters says that conversations are subject to change and that it doesn’t know whether an agreement has been reached.
CATL is the organization that supplies the likes of Tesla.
In terms of the chemical makeup of the batteries, Apple is said to be inclining towards the less expensive lithium iron phosphate alternative as indicated by similar four individuals.
Apple’s been rumored to have plans for a type of electric vehicle for many years and keeping in mind that the story once in a while changes to Apple building autonomous tech for different organizations, it’s a story that won’t disappear.
Apple has never affirmed Apple Car, however we do realize that Project Titan lives on somewhere inside Apple with late Bloomberg reports noticing that a turnover of staff is in progress.
It looks liable to be a few years before we see anything emerge from Project Titan, if ever. Meanwhile, why not get a little taste by adding CarPlay to your old car? These are probably the best CarPlat beneficiaries you can discover.
