The new car planned by Apple is likely to be developed and shipped by the end of 2019. Apple executives are supposed to meet a few government officials for discussing the regulations governing this project. The project will be assigned to a team of 1,800 participants initially; they’ll develop the first generation model that’s not autonomous entirely.
Critics and industry experts are wondering why Apple is entering a business that runs on a challenging platform and ends up generating low-margin returns. Renowned vehicle manufacturers like Volkswagen and Tesla are bound to turn the road stiffer for Apple. The latest industry reports suggest that the company is still hiring IT experts alongside experts in robotics and mechanical vision.
