Apple to develop its EV independently, axing plans for collaboration

Apple’s heavily rumored electric car will be developed independently, according to sources in Korea. Apple was in talks with several large automakers as the project became more real this year, but it seems the tech giant is more interested in developing its first EV on its own.

New reports from Korea’s Maeil Economic Daily indicate that Apple is establishing its own “automobile research institute” and has been pushing for the development of its vehicle on its own. Previously, Apple had been in talks with large carmakers like Toyota, BMW, Hyundai, Kia, and Nissan, all companies with a long line of automotive expertise that would assist Apple in manufacturing, research, and development. Apple favored a partnership previously, but now things seem to be delayed due to production bottlenecks across the board, which has Apple in a difficult situation.

As a result, Apple wants to get the project rolling, and it

Will there be a real car? Or just some software? Who knows.

Three of Apple’s self-driving car executives departed the company in the past few months, according to a report from Bloomberg. The move poses more questions than it provides answers as it remains rather mysterious what Apple has up its sleeve for the automotive industry.

Apple did not immediately return a request for comment on the news, but according to the report, the self-driving car team lost Dave Scott, Jaime Waydo and Benjamin Lyon. Lyon was part of the original car team years ago and the company tasked him with the project’s long-term development. He departed the company for Astra, a firm focused on space satellite launches. Scott’s exit removes him from leading the team’s robotics division, while Waydo will no longer oversee the autonomous car safety and regulations teams. Leading the entire project is Tesla

Apple Car Suffers a Setback as the Project Loses Key Managers

Apple Car, the iPhone manufacturer’s secretive EV program, has suffered a massive setback that has brought to the fore the supposed lack of viability of the entire project.

According to the reporting by Bloomberg, at least three members of the Apple Car team have left the project so far this year. David Scott, who was leading the robotics team vis-à-vis the Apple Car, constitutes one of the most high-profile departures in recent times. Mr. Scott is now slated to become the CEO of Hyperfine, a medical tech company. Similarly, the lead manager on the Apple Car’s safety and regulations team, Jaime Waydo, also left Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) to become a CTO at Cavune, an autonomous transportation startup. Finally, back in February, Benjamin Lyon seriously undermined the team when he became the chief engineer at the satellite company Astra. Bear in mind that Mr. Lyon helped formulate the
