The Next Great Apple Project Is an Electric Car, According to WSJ

Curious information that has emerged throughout the day that pointed to that Apple would be working on the design of your own car, It came as a result of hiring people with experience in the automotive world, among which we find responsible for research and development at Mercedes-Benz.

It was all about rumors as it commonly occurs in the Apple world, but a few moments ago WSJ just release the pump to publish that information from the car and procurement Mercedes-Benz Johann Jungwirth is true, even mentioned details that point to It will be electric and will compete with the developments of Tesla.

‘Project Titan’, this is how Apple could debut in the world of motor

The information refers to that Apple currently has about 1000 people working in what so far is called Project Titan, a kind of fully electric minivan and that would be the entrance of Apple to the automotive world.

Tim Cook would have approved the project a more than one year ago, putting in front of that team of 1,000 people, from various departments at Apple, to Steve Zadesky, Vice President of design at Apple, who was part of Ford for some time as an engineer.

The project is still in a very early stage of development, even talking about years to make this car look light, the interesting thing is the point of comparison against Tesla, which comes more relevant information from the theft of talent between the two companies, as well as a possible Alliance, which we do not know which way go to take now. To keep you informed with what would have to compete, you can see our review of the Tesla Model S, which our colleagues from Motorpasión did last year:

Of course until there is confirmation we can’t assure anything, but that several sources ensure information transfers, visits to assembly plants and parts of cars manufacturers, speaks to us that something big is on its way.
