Apple’s foray into the electric cars world might be delayed again. Even though the Cupertino-based company has yet to acknowledge their car project, media outlets have reported on the rumors before. According to Bloomberg, the all-electric Apple car might be pushed into 2026 and could cost below $100,000. Furthermore, Apple is said to be still working on the design in a “pre-prototype” stage.
Bloomberg also reports that this Apple EV won’t be fully autonomous. Instead, drivers will alledgedly only be able to activate the self-driving features on highways, similar to the Level 2+ features in the BMW i7 or in the GM’s Super Cruise and Ford’s BlueCruise. Initially it was believed that Apple wanted to offer a vehicle with “Level 5” autonomy.
The rumormill further churns out that the Apple Car would use a technology system codenamed Denali powered by a processor that’s “about four of Apple’s highest-end Mac chips combined,” according to Bloomberg. The same outlet says that the chip is believed to have reached an advanced state of development.
Over the years, the Apple Car team has also gone through several leadership changes and Project Titan has been delayed several times.
