Apple Car to Arrive by 2024


Apple Inc is moving forward with its plan of putting its self-driving car into the market by 2024. It started to design its own vehicle from scratch in 2014, but the project was put on the backburner to focus on software development. Apple then brought in people from Tesla, who cleaned up their automobile division. The company now plans to build personal vehicles in contrast to rival Alphabet Inc’s robo-taxis.

The Apple vehicle could have an edge over other vehicles as it will use Apple’s own unique breakthrough battery technology that could radically reduce the cost of batteries. One of the most expensive elements in an electric vehicle is the battery and Apple’s technology would not only reduce the cost, but also increase the range of the vehicle.
