Apple Car Launch Delayed to 2028; to Arrive With Limited Self-Driving Capabilities
According to new reports, Apple Car will not have a full-fledged launch before the year 2028 if it is ever completed. The car’s model was expected since 2019 but major complications and later changes in strategy led to a very significant delay in the project.
The secretive Apple Car project “Titan” has seen a lot of turmoil since it got initiated back in 2014. The project has seen a fair bit of executive turnover, changes in its development strategy, and various rounds of layoffs, which have made it one of the most dramatic and lofty projects at Apple.
Though, the company has generally seemed pretty determined to have an electric vehicle on the market at some point, and now it’s set a new target release date of 2028.
One Apple strategy change is significant in turning towards a more basic electric vehicle with limited features. It’s aimed to compete against the currently available models of Tesla rather than putting its effort into developing a car that drives tool – free, and that was in the plan at the start.
In concrete terms, this shift reflects an even more aggressive but realistic goal for Apple versus its current competition in the electric vehicle market.
Another significant development is the decision to scale back the self-driving abilities of this Apple Car. The vehicle is now planned to offer semi-autonomous driving technology no more advanced than what’s already been deployed by Tesla Motors or the forthcoming system from BMW that will be revealed next year. This variety into different levels of self-driving features might be a way to adapt to the difficulty and complexity of fully developing autonomous vehicles.
Although this may be disappointing for those who have been waiting for the Apple Car, it is worth remembering that thanks to this, in the end, they are likely to give a more detailed, competitive product. Allowing Apple to keep competitive posture direction taking the time to research and develop a well rounded electric car with limited self-driving capabilities.
So in the end, the launch of Apple Car is delayed until 2028 since now the company shifts its strategy toward developing a more basic electric vehicle with limited self-driving capabilities.
This change reflects the extent to which Apple is determined to bring up a competitive product to market and corresponds to the challenges occurring in reality and difficulties of putting such cars into life. Though some may find this frustrating, it actually speaks to Apple’s commitment of bringing together the best technologies for a nuanced and powerful electric vehicle experience.
