Hyundai said it had preliminary discussions with Apple on Friday. The company reacted to local media reports that a co-produced autonomous electric car would be on the market in 2027.
Korean IT News, quoted by Reuters, said electric car production may be located at Hyundai’s Georgia plant in the United States. Alternatively, it would be possible to set up a completely new production plant for the manufacture of the vehicle.
According to IT News, the goal would be to produce about 100,000 vehicles a year around 2024. The final production capacity of the planned plant would be about 400,000 cars per year.
Hyundai refrained from commenting further on the project, but the company’s share rose nearly 20 percent with the news. IT News, quoted by Reuters, later updated its news.
Information on, among other things, the time and place of production of the car had been eliminated from the version. The date of confirmation of the agreement between the companies and the date of publication of the prototype of the electric car had also been removed from the news.
Apple has previously been told it is preparing to start production of its own electric car around 2024. The company wants to equip a passenger car-type vehicle with its own battery technology.
