I don’t buy it, but the Economic Daily News claims the long-rumored “Apple Car” is running at least two years ahead of schedule and will be released in the third quarter of 2021. The article cites “unnamed executives at Taiwanese manufacturers.”
“According to the executives of a major electric vehicle supply chain manufacturer, with the order shipment and assembly completed, dozens of Apple Car’s first prototype cars have been secretly tested on the road in California,” says the Economic Daily News. “It is expected that heavy shipments and business opportunities will be mature next year.”
Most pundits — including usually-accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo — have pegged a 2023 or later time table for such a vehicle to roll out. However, the Sellers Research Group (that’s me) doesn’t think Apple will ever make an automobile. Instead, I think it will team up with other car manufactures to implement the various automobile technologies on which it’s working (and there are MANY) into their cars.
