Apple wants to use BMW i3 as the source for the Apple Electric Car , the electric car that is currently in development. Apple has been a few months working on bringing in top talent with experience in the automotive industry. Now it come into view that they do not have enough people to only that: the technology of existing carmakers is needed to make a success of the Apple Car.
The body of the BMW i3 is made of carbon fiber and could serve as a good source for Apple's own electric car. CEO Tim Cook said, according to sources with experienced managers from the production team of the i3. That already happened last fall, in Leipzig. Meanwhile, the consultation would be (temporarily) discontinued. In the US, BMW sells percentage more electric cars than other automakers. Because of the light weight, the car is very economical. The contacts between the two companies would not be totally degraded, sources say. Perhaps there is therefore something out.There would be hundreds of employees are set to work, but the first results, we can probably expect until around 2020.
