American technology giant, Apple is said to be working on its own electric car project. However, not much is known about the electric car project which is only known by its code name 'Project Titan'.
Now a report in South Korean news outlet, ETNews, may just shine a light on the mysterious project, more specificaly, the fact that Apple may be working on hollow batteries with a South Korean firm.
The reports claims that Apple has signed a non-disclosure agremment with an unamed South Korean firm, which employees 20 or more expert battery tchnologists and also holds international patents for hollow batteries.
Using a hollow battery will be a significant leap forward in the electric vehicle technology as current batteries produce the most amount of heat in their centres where the chemical reactions take place.
ETNews claims that the Korean company has patented a hollow battery that allows for air flow and cooling which in turn can minimize the installation of separate cooling devices. The hollow centres also make it easier for engineers to design parallel electric connections, which helps increase the output of the battery.
Apple is as usual notoriously tight-lipped about 'Project Titan', which is quite normal for the world's largest publicly traded company. However, rumors point towards a release date between 2019 and 2021 for the roadgoing Project Titan Vehicle
