‘This car is all about autonomous driving, a software game’, told the anonymous insider to Reuters. As Reuters point out, to make cutting-edge vehicle software plenty of money is required. It also needs a self-driving operating system requiring high-definition mapping and right now the Apple’s iMove Electric Car also requires bespoke software. The fact is that Google, the company’s biggest competitor is exploring for more than a year about autonomous vehicles.Apple may be interested in moving into the market of self-driving car, in the same way as it entered the markets of Smartphone and digital music spheres, by developing in-house hardware and software, rather than looking for partnerships with existing suppliers. The Reuters source said, “They do not consider or appear to require assistance from the carmakers”.
Markedly, the tech company hired Mercedes-Benz former head of research and development, Johann Jungwirth, in September. His responsibilities in Mercedes in the past five years included electric-vehicle powertrain, autonomous driving and connected car tech research. He will be a part of the new generation Apple’s electric car.
Apple is creating an in-car entertainment system for a while now. Many companies are now offering their own in-car systems. The rumors suggest Apple is considering developing Apple’s iMove Electric Car, for various reasons. With gas prices expected and set to rise again and with the climate change, Apple being the first to build a fashionable and affordable electric car could be a big deal.
