Apple Car boss left Cupertino

Field was registered as vice president of (one of) Apple’s special projects in Cupertino, which unofficially meant leading the development of the Apple Car. Prior to that, from 2018 to 2013, the specialist worked as a leading vehicle engineer for Tesla, where he was involved in solving the rudimentary problems of the Model 3, among other things. With five years of experience gained and time spent at Apple before that (before Tesla, Field was vice president of hardware development for Macs), the specialist was the ideal choice for Apple, until now. The irony of the shift is that Ford will use Google Android in its infotainment system for its vehicles from 2023 onwards.

In his rabbit-tail comment, Apple thanked Field for his work and wished him a lot of success. The company has not yet talked about who will take over the work of the specialist. Among the potential candidates is Ulrich Kranz, who was just contracted from BMW in June in the field, who also worked on the i3 EV as well as the i8 hybrid sports car. Kranz also soon left the head of the Canoo startup, which was working on an electric car project. Canoot had previously been announced with Apple, which was reportedly considering acquiring the startup.

Field departure has been the many bolts in Apple Car’s roughly 7-year unofficial history. According to industry rumors, the car project has been working in Cupertino for a relatively long time, although it is said to be still in a relatively rudimentary state. An initiative within the company called Project Titan dates back to 2014, although in the meantime it has been parked several times – in 2019, the company laid off about 190 employees working on the project.

Last December, Reuters reported, citing sources close to the company, that the Cupertino giant was working with steam power on its self-driving car technology – and even developing battery technology that was a “breakthrough” in-house. The results of the company’s efforts could be released around 2024, according to the newspaper’s sources, when production of purely electric Apple cars could begin. For the time being, however, it is possible that the automotive industry will prove to be too big a bite for the company, so that in the end it will only launch a self-driving car system instead of a complete vehicle that other carmakers can integrate into their own products.
