Apple's electric vehicle development will be completed by the third quarter of 2021, and the premiere is also expected in this period.
While many sources claimed the Apple Car would launch between 2023 and 2025, including analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, some report cited an unnamed director at a major Taiwanese manufacturer who suggests that Apple could show its car two years earlier than previously expected.
It is reported that Apple manufacturers and suppliers are preparing to ramp up the production of Apple Car components in the second quarter of 2021. Apple has already begun testing dozens of prototype electric vehicles on California roads.
Apple received permission to conduct self-driving vehicle tests back in 2017, and it was spotted using Lexus SUVs rigged with LiDAR equipment that year.
If today's rumor is true, the Apple Car presentation will be held in September 2021, possibly with the new iPhone 13. However, it is possible that the company will only announce the electric car but will not name the date of its release.
