It has become an open secret that Apple is working on EV technology and that the company may actually unveil its own electric car in the not too distant future. Now according to a report from Bloomberg, additional details about the rumored vehicle have surfaced and they’re kind of wild.
According to the report, Apple appears to be aiming for fully autonomous driving, so much so that they are so convinced of its technology that they are designing a car without a steering wheel or driver pedals. This means that users do not have manual control of the car and can take it with them wherever they need to go.
This is pretty crazy because most self-driving cars still have steering wheels and pedals in place in case the driver has to take over in an emergency. The removal of these key features suggests that Apple is extremely confident about its car’s ability to self-navigate.
Call us skeptical, but self-driving technologies feel there is still a long way to go. Companies like Tesla already have cars with almost similar technology on the streets, but even then there were occasional reports of accidents. The report also suggests that Apple plans to launch its car in 2025, though it remains to be seen whether or not the roads, laws and regulations for such vehicles will have caught up by then.
