Apple Inc. is now planning on entering the electric vehicle segment. It is rumoured that the company has developed a prototype that looks like a minivan. It is also been reported that Apple has formed a secret lab for their project.
This move by Apple to join the electric vehicle segment is being seen as a sign of competition to Tesla Motors in America. Google is currently working on developing driverless cars and their system will be capable of using on electric vehicles as well.
In March, 2014 Apple Inc. has showcased their new innovation called CarPlay. This system allowed iPhone owners to dial calls and listen to their voicemail without letting go of the steering wheel. The American based company wants to be at the forefront of every innovation.
It is unclear how long their electric project could take to come to life. All of this depends if they are really building something in the so called secret lab. Everything is up in the air and Apple may develop the technology and could get the vehicle build by some other manufacturer, as well.
Apple Inc. wants to extends its presence in several fields and electric vehicle seems like a logical option. The iPhone maker though needs to realise that building a vehicle from scratch id no easy feat. It reacquires loads of research and study to make a vehicle run on the street.
