According to recent reports, it seems that Apple’s progress on their electric car is coming along nicely, to the point where Apple is apparently looking for companies to help them make their car. Recently, we heard that Hyundai was the frontrunner to produce the Apple Car, but now a new report suggests otherwise.
Tesla’s Model S and Model X cars have been around for a while now, but it seems that after all this while, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is asking the company to recall both vehicles from the roads. This is apparently due to issues with the cars’ display, backup camera, window defogger and defroster, and more.
Given that Apple has no commercial experience when it comes to making its own cars, it’s not surprising that the company is using its immense resources to try and acquire companies that might have said experience. In fact, a report from The Verge revealed that Apple tried to acquire EV startup Canoo back in 2020, but then those talks fell through and the acquisition obviously did not happen.
Word on the street has it that Apple apparently wants to build their own electric car, but obviously the company has no experience doing such a thing so it would make sense for them to partner with someone who does. Recently we heard that Hyundai was one of the potential partners for Apple’s project.
Ideally, we would all drive cars powered by renewable energy, but it’s hard to make people change, especially when for many decades, we’ve been used to the idea of gas-powered vehicles. This is why the state of Massachusetts has announced that by 2035, they will ban the sale of new gas-powered cars.
While it might be a while before we see fully autonomous cars become mainstream, Tesla’s efforts are certainly evidence that we are progressing rather nicely. This is thanks to Whole Mars Catalog who recently shared a video on YouTube where they put Tesla’s Full Self-Driving beta feature to the test somewhat successfully.
One of the problems that EV owners face right now is the lack of dedicated EV chargers. Unlike gas stations that are ubiquitous, EV charging stations still lack that kind of coverage, which means that drivers need to plan their routes and hope that there’s a spot available. However, Volkswagen is hoping to address part of that problem.
If there is one thing we can appreciate about smarter cars is that they can receive software updates. This means that over time, your car can gain certain new features that will make driving it more enjoyable. Take for example Tesla, who recently released its promised holiday update.
While we have heard rumors about Apple making their own car in the past, recently the project was put under the spotlight again when it was suggested that it could debut in the next 4-5 years. So much so that when asked on LinkedIn about such a car, Volkswagen’s CEO replied by saying that they are looking forward to the competition.
The word on the street is that Apple is apparently working on their own car that could debut in the next 4-5 years. It seems like a massive undertaking for a company that has never produced a car before, and it seems that Apple could have actually made their lives a lot easier because according to the Elon Musk biography written by Ashlee Vance, Tesla’ CEO confirmed that he had […]
It has been rumored for a while that Apple could be working on a car of their own, and a more recent report suggested that the car could actually be launched in 2024. Now according to a new report from Reuters, they have “confirmed” the previous report and added a claim that the car will come with a “breakthrough battery”.
In order to help deal with the lack of native apps, Apple allows macOS Big Sur users on its M1 computers to run iPhone and iPad apps. While it might not necessarily be optimized for a laptop’s dimensions and UI, the idea is that it will bring about functionality and usability until more native apps arrive for the M1 chipset.
It is widely expected that electric cars will become the new standard in the future moving forwards. This is due to the emphasis placed on reducing the use of fossil fuels, and cars that don’t rely on it are expected to become more common in the future. In fact, the UK might try to speed the adoption of electric cars up.
If you want an electric car, you’ll have to go out and buy one, but what if you already own a car? We suppose you could sell it off and then buy an electric car, but what if you didn’t have to? That’s pretty much the premise the Chevrolet is working with as the company has announced that in 2021, they will start selling EV retrofit kits.
Pretty much all cars have some kind of alarm system that will go off when someone tries to break into your car, but if you can’t hear it, then that’s just too bad. However, with smarter cars like Tesla, its security system is obviously a lot more comprehensive, something that these thieves probably did not anticipate.
There are many reasons why a car’s bumper might fall off. It usually has to do with accidents, where if you accidentally scraped the underside, it might loosen it and cause it to fall off. Or if someone hit your car or you’ve hit someone else’s car or an object. But falling off due to heavy rain? That’s a new one.
We’ve all accidentally made a “butt dial” at some point in our lives where by we’ve called people without meaning to. However, have you ever accidentally “butt-purchased” anything before? Unfortunately for Dr. Ali Vaziri, he’s now on the hook for a $4,280 bill from Tesla after he allegedly claims he accidentally purchased an upgrade for his vehicle.
For a while, Tesla’s electric cars were viewed as premium vehicles due to their high price tags. However, in recent years, the company has started to offer more affordable models, like the Tesla Model 3 which is priced starting at $35,000. This is by no means cheap, but it is more affordable compared to some of the company’s other electric cars.
A lot of car makers have set themselves deadlines in which they eventually plan to make the shift to fully-electric vehicles. However, for those who might be holding out, they might have some trouble over in California because the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, has announced that he will be signing an executive order that will ban the sale of new gas-powered cars starting in 2035.
Tesla has always been pretty careful when marketing its Autopilot feature, which they have insisted in the past does not turn their vehicles into self-driving cars, even though for the most part it does have certain autonomous capabilities. However, it has not stopped Tesla owners from treating it as such.
