Has the model category of the Apple iCar been determined?
A report reveals interesting details about the eagerly awaited new car.
This also includes information on the purchase price.
California - Apple CEO Tim Cook is said to have stretched his thumb for the development of his own electric car since 2014.
Since then, rumors have been circulating around the question of when the tech company might launch its first vehicle - and what it will look like.
Instead of putting its own model on the wheels, the group in the automotive sector initially focused on software for autonomous driving and worked closely with Toyota and Lexus.
Now, however, Apple is speeding up the design of the “Apple iCar” and after a brief interlude with Hyundai at the beginning of the year, they are apparently looking for a partner to implement the project at full speed.
No wonder: after all, the entire automotive industry is in a state of upheaval and the time seems appropriate to maneuver yourself into the top field with digital know-how in the highly competitive environment.
Apple iCar: Shockingly high price as a declaration of war on premium manufacturers such as Tesla and BMW?
A report from the
brings out new information that gives a concrete impression of what the automotive competition is dealing with: The article comes up with inside information on the appearance and price structure.
Accordingly, the innovative new car will allegedly cost a handsome price of around 120,000 euros.
The market launch of the revolutionary project is planned for 2024.
That sounds shockingly expensive for a vehicle, if it is aimed at higher sales figures.
Still, is success mapped out when Apple brings its own car onto the market?
Although the US group already successfully sells high-priced products in the field of mobile devices, there is no guarantee that the procedure in the automotive sector will work in a similar way.
The second interesting point relates to the vehicle type: The iCar from Apple is supposed to be a stylish minibus that is of course equipped with an electric drive.
So a high-priced model that is interesting for families with a good income? This shows the competitive field: Because of the price range, one would challenge the makes of premium manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes or Volkswagen with the VW ID.Buzz.
In terms of purchase price, however, it should be well below the tech giant's minibus.
Not to be forgotten: Tesla, which is considered a pioneer in the field of electric mobility.
VW is also planning a surprising new electric car: the model would fully exploit the advantages of electric vehicles.
