Short Bytes: Apple like to keep mum over matters — be it the iPhone, iPad, Apple watch, and Apple’s electric car. That might be one of the ways to surprise the people. However, this time, the audience is none other than Tesla founder Elon Musk.
When asked if Apple was really making the electric cars, Musk said yes. He said that it is an open secret. But Musk does not seem disturbed or worried with the new venture of Apple into electric cars. Rather, he welcomed the participation of other big giants in this field.
Looking at the trend of big tech giants rolling out their projects like Google’s autonomous cars, Toyota’s high precision maps or Apple’s open secret of a new venture into electric cars, the day might not be too far when the legacy of Elon Musk might get threatened.
Besides big tech giants, also, major car makers like BMW and Audi are gearing up to enter the self-driving vehicle market while startups like Faraday Future have begun showing off their capabilities in developing high-performance electric cars.
Meanwhile, Tesla hopes to begin production of its Model 3 — a more affordable vehicle than its current offerings. It will be surely interesting to see the big players fighting over the top spot in this autonomous game. What’s your take on this? Who do you think would wear the crown?
