Apple Car electric car characteristics
|Among the many promising developments of Apple, a special place, and, consequently, increased interest, is occupied by the project to create an electric car Apple Car. Ming-Chi Kuo, an insider analyst specializing in Apple products, famous for his sales forecasts, provided some information about the future car of the high-tech giant. |
First of all, the analyst confirmed the report that the production of the car from Apple will be carried out in partnership with the largest Korean automaker Hyundai. At the same time, Apple Car production will be deployed in the United States, based on the factories of the second largest Korean automaker Kia. The Hyundai Mobis division will take part in the development of individual components of the car, and the electric car itself will be created on the basis of the E-GMP platform, presented by Hyundai in 2020.
The Hyundai platform will be able to guarantee impressive technical characteristics for the Apple Car. So the speed of acceleration to 100 km / h will be only 3.5 seconds, and the autonomous radius of the trip will be more than 500 km at a maximum speed of 260 km / h. The battery pack of the E-GMP platform supports fast charging technology, with which 80% of the energy can be replenished in just 18 minutes.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the development of the Apple Car will take a long time. The analyst notes that even to create the next iPhone, " it takes about 18-24 months from the initial specification to mass production." Given that Apple has no experience in the automotive industry, the greater complexity of the car compared to a smartphone (the car has 40-50 times more components than a smartphone) and the complexity of the supply chain, the Apple Car should not be expected to enter the market until 2025.
