After a time with constant rumors about the project of the Apple carThings settled down and it seemed that the idea of the car designed in California and manufactured who knows where, had been parked. Well, it will not be, and today a news item has reappeared that talks about it.
It appears that several Apple employees have been in korea holding meetings with different manufacturers in that country of automotive components. One of them, manufacturer of batteries for electric cars. So in Cupertino they continue to err that err with the idea of making an Apple Car.
As reported by the Korea Times, Apple has started discussions with several component manufacturers to electric vehicles, and several of its employees have visited the facilities of these auto parts producers in South Korea.
The article explains that these manufacturers are LG, SK Innovation, Hanwha and Magna International, and that these meetings have been a first contact about a possible collaboration in the manufacture of an electric vehicle for Apple.
