Chinese batteries for autonomous cars

For the needs of its first electric car, Apple is said to be in talks with two major Chinese battery manufacturers.

The American giant Apple would be negotiating with Chinese conglomerates Catlus and WORLD to supply batteries to its self-driving electric car project. code name: Apple Car.

Talks are still in their early stages at the moment. Nothing has yet been recorded according to the Reuters agency.

The Apple Car or the long-standing rumor

Rumors about an Apple car, which have been going on for several years now, were reignited in early 2021 by a wave of press reports.

Emphasis was placed on a possible collaboration with the manufacturers Hyundai and That. In particular, it has been said that Apple wants to rely on the group’s new electric car platform. The aim was to prepare for production at Kia’s US plant in the state of Georgia by 2024. The project with Hyundai quickly fell into the water.

For several years, Apple has been developing autonomous driving technology by testing SUVs

converted into robot cars on the public roads of Silicon Valley. Especially for Lexus, Toyota’s luxury brand.

What about batteries for his Apple Car

Beyond the assembly of its future cars – which could be subcontracted to a major automotive group – there remains the battery problem for the American giant.

Apple would therefore have entered into discussions with two companies, BYD and CATL, two Chinese lithium battery giants. But there would be no question of industrializing the Apple Car batteries in China.

The giant with the apple thus imposes on its interlocutors a manufacture on American soil. Information confirmed by a representative of the White House, who wishes to bet on American production for semiconductors and batteries.
