Hyundai and Kia downplay Apple motor vehicle rumors

Just after months of speculation, Hyundai and subsidiary Kia have once more sought to downplay rumors and reporting that they are working with Apple on an autonomous electric car or truck job. The firms say they are no lengthier in talks, in accordance to Reuters and Bloomberg, while that does not imply the conversations won’t reopen afterwards.

Hyundai’s remarks as claimed by Bloomberg are basically the exact same as what the firm said past thirty day period in a assertion that mentioned Apple right before being confusingly walked again. The carmaker claims it is been speaking about possible autonomous electric motor vehicle assignments with a variety of associates but is however to achieve a choice. Bloomberg claimed very last 7 days that the talks with Apple had “paused.”

Renowned Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo believes that the company does in truth plan to use Hyundai’s E-GMP system for its to start with electrical car and use Kia for US-based mostly producing, though even then he does not be expecting the vehicle to strike the market place right before 2025. No matter what the point out of Apple and Hyundai’s negotiations, then, the project is not likely to be unveiled any time soon.
