Companies like Apple tend to be pretty self-sufficient where they try to make everything themselves. This makes a lot of sense because it means that they won’t have to rely on others, in the event that there is a dispute, and that they can also better control the quality of their components and also get it to do what they want it to do.
Due to the fact that electric cars rely on an electric motor, it tends to be a lot more quiet compared to regulars.

However, as with all electronics, they can sometimes fail, or in the case of Amazon, it appears that their use of Tesla’s solar panels at one of their warehouses has resulted in it catching on fire.
