According to a report from Reuters, Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes Benz, is open to “different types” of cooperation with Apple and even Google in the future for cars of the next generation.
Apple has been continuously hiring new individuals to join up within its Project Titan, the endeavor focused on bringing an electric car with an Apple logo to the market. Now, a new report indicates it could be coming faster than previously speculated.
Project Titan, as it’s called now, is one of Apple’s underground projects right now, with very little hard information to go on when it comes to the “Apple Car.”
A report from the Wall Street Journal claims that Apple recently recruited two major automobile industry experts to work on its own electric vehicle.
In the middle of February of this year, it was reported that Apple was being sued by A123 Systems due to poaching battery tech experts.
A report from Reuters claims that BMW has denied reports about the company being in talks with Apple to develop an electric car.
All the stars seem to be lining up for the Apple Car, as rumors stack on other rumors. And, of course, those within the auto industry are going to be asked about them.
The Apple Car is a rumor that essentially popped up out of nowhere, and it’s a rumor that just keeps getting fueled.
