Hyundai confirms talks with Apple to build its “Apple Car”

Now it seems the Hyunda-Apple partnership may soon be finalised after the autogiant confirmed in a statement to CNBC that Apple is in negotiation with it and other automakers.

“We understand that Apple is in discussion with a variety of global automakers, including Hyundai Motor. As the discussion is at its early stage, nothing has been decided.”

Apple’s self-driving car project, called “Project Titan”, designed its own car from scratch and aims to produce production vehicle by 2024.

“Project Titan” has experienced a couple of gains and losses since it launched in 2014. The phone maker sacked 190 staff working on the project in 2019.
