The ‘soap opera’ between Apple and Hyundai It seems that it is close to giving way to a beautiful relationship.
According to the Korean newspaper Korea IT News, Hyundai and Apple plan to partner to develop electric and autonomous cars and make it official this March. Production would begin in 2024 in the United States.
What will happen? What mystery will there be?
This new information follows the announcement that, perhaps intentionally, Hyundai made a few days ago. The South Korean firm revealed in a statement that it was in talks with Apple to develop an autonomous electric car.
An announcement that, although it was a shock for Hyundai in the stock market, it seems that it did not appeal to Apple, known for its secrecy in terms of new projects.
And it is that hours later Hyundai limited itself to saying that it was “receiving requests for cooperation for the joint development of autonomous electric vehicles from several companies”, without identifying any of them and explicitly leaving Apple aside.
The Cupertino brand has been silent ever since.
Reports from the Korean newspaper have suggested that the companies planned to use the Kia factory in Germany or invest together in a new one. US-based factory to build 100,000 vehicles by 2024, with a total annual capacity of 400,000 vehicles.
Korea IT News also said that the companies would be working on a “beta version” of Apple vehicles to launch next year. However, all these details were later removed from the informational piece.
At the moment we know that apple electric car It could arrive this year, and perhaps thanks to the production capacity of Hyundai and Kia.
