Tesla Keeping Mum On Involvement With Apple’s CarPlay

carplay-lineupA couple of days ago, Apple announced CarPlay which was basically a rebranding of iOS in the Car which was revealed last year. Along with the announcement, Apple also revealed some of their partners that would be including the feature in their vehicles.

These companies included Ferrari, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz, and are expected to be joined by other companies such as BMW, Ford, Kia, and so on at a later date. Oddly enough there appeared to be one car manufacturer missing from the list: Tesla.

Why is this odd, you ask? Well if you recall, Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, had recently confirmed that he and Apple “had conversations” not too long ago. Naturally the details of the conversation were not revealed, but with the announcement of CarPlay, you could not be blamed if you expected to see Tesla’s logo up there with the rest of them.

However in a recent statement released by Tesla, a spokesman was quoted as saying, “Tesla is not commenting on Apple’s CarPlay at this time.” We’re not sure if this means that Tesla might have something to announce at a later date, but either way for a company who has in the past been pretty open about its future, this is a surprisingly conservative response.

Then again most deals involving Apple tend to be pretty hush-hush as Apple is notorious for keeping their cards close to the chest, leaks and misplaced prototypes not withstanding. In any case we guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this one plays out, but until then we’ll try to keep the speculation to a minimum.
