Kuo: The Apple Car Team Has Been Dissolved And A Reorganization Is Needed
The Apple Car project is one that has been bubbling along for some time now and while we still don’t know for sure what that product will be, a new report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that things are pretty stalled right now.
In fact, he says that the team that was working on Apple Car has been dissolved for some time.
Kuo was speaking via Twitter and said that Apple will need to work to get things back on track if it is to be able to produce a vehicle by 2025. That’s the tentative date that has been given on the project by analysts, including Kuo.
The Apple Car project team has been dissolved for some time. The reorganization within the next three to six months is necessary to achieve the goal of mass production by 2025.
We’ve been hearing various contradictory reports about the Apple Car project for years. Some had said that Apple was working on creating self-driving technology that would be sold to carmakers, while reports over the last year or so claimed that Apple was speaking with companies like Hyundai about the possibility of working together on a project. Those talks are said to have ended some time ago.
Whatever happens it’s clear the Apple Car project has gone through multiple different leaders and we’ve heard stories of executives moving on to other companies. At this point it seems increasingly unlikely that Apple Car will ship by 2025, if at all.
