According to recent reports, several hundreds of employees of Apple are now working on an electric car that is internally known as Titan. It was earlier this month with Patently Apple discovered a patent issued under the name of ‘Apple Electric Car Inc.’
While this patent didn’t come from Cupertino, a team at the company is definitely interested in manufacturing electric cars. The report that Apple is prepping an electric car comes amidst issues that the company is working on a Street View rival after minivans leased to Apple were found driving in Claycord, California. These minivans were found equipped with LiDAR sensors as well as cameras.
Whatever Apple is testing, we’ll just have to wait if ever the company actually releases an electric car roll into its press event. Just like other tech firms, it can be noted that Apple always experiments with different technologies that it never ends up bringing to the market.
According to the Journal though, the size of the team and the number of senior people that are involved in Apple’s ‘electric car’ is serious.
