Apple’s electric car codenamed Project Titan to make a global debut by 2024
Apple’s electric car plans were in the pipeline since 2014 and now after a hard-hitting lockdown, the production plans are back on track
Apple’s desire to venture into the EV space is no secret. But like any other upcoming product from Apple, the details of this are also scarce. As per Reuter’s interaction with two of the main people leading the project, certain details about the electric car, codenamed Project Titan have been revealed.
The Apple electric car plans were first conceived in 2014 and the prime focus was on equipping it with high-tech features and autonomous driving technologies. As we progress towards electrification, Apple Inc now plans to prioritise battery development to achieve a long driving range. Apple with an advanced battery tech is also experimenting with chemicals and is trying to manufacture an LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery. The LFP battery pack will be different from the regular lithium-ion battery packs in electric cars and is less likely to overheat while also being more affordable.
Recently Apple Inc was in contact with Magna International for manufacturing the EV. Magna International is a contract manufacturer for brands like Aston Martin, BMW, Daimler AG, Ford and Tata Motors. However, as of now, it is unclear which company will actually manufacture the EV.
Apple has pioneered smartphone technology and has been one of the best and most influential technology companies in the world. Can it also leave a mark in the futuristic green mobility sector? That’s something we’ll have to wait and watch.
