Apple Car: is potential competition scared?

It is not yet known how, but Apple will enter the sector of electric and autonomous cars. The indications and rumors are too much for it not to happen. Hyundai was expected to help with production, but the truth is that the unknowns are still many.

But in a market that is booming, is the competition afraid that Apple will enter this equation?


It is possible that this year we will see Apple lifting the veil of its intentions to enter the electric car sector a little, given the amount of rumors that have emerged recently.

Hyundai even came to the public, prematurely, to advance that it would be working with Apple in the future Apple Car. However, days later, the news indicated that the alleged negotiations had been interrupted.

Potential competition that does not fear Apple

In light of this eminence, Herbert Diess, Volkswagen’s chief executive, made some statements related to the Apple Car. In an interview, Herbert Diess, guarantees that the company is not concerned with the arrival of Apple in the sector.

The automotive industry is not a typical technology sector that could be assumed at once. Apple will not lead overnight

Although Cupertino’s plans are not public, Diess said his intentions were “logical”. First, because the company has experience in batteries, software and design. Then, because you have the monetary factor on your side, with a lot of money to develop these skills in the automotive field.

Still, we are not afraid

| reinforced Herbert Diess.

Volkswagen has plans to develop the software needed for autonomous cars internally, thus ensuring that it is able to compete with companies in this specific segment.
