Ming-Chi Kuo: Apple Car team will be restructured by the end of this year

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that after several years of relative silence, the Apple Car team is restarting work and may restructure the team by the end of 2022. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared his prediction in a "survey"-based tweet on Twitter.

The term Project Titan has long been used to refer to Apple-designed cars and autonomous vehicle systems. Numerous revelations show that Apple will develop a fully self-driving car that requires little human intervention when driving. Project Titan rumors date back to 2014 when the first leaks described Project Titan as focusing on cars. Apple formed the SixtyEight Research shell company and began working at the SG5 factory in California.

The Project Titan team has gone through many changes. Bob Mansfield, who took over as project leader in 2016, said at the time that Apple would not compete directly with Tesla. A lot has happened since then, and the COVID-19 outbreak is said to be one of the factors Apple delayed the project.

Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple is unlikely to launch a new car before 2025. Ming-Chi Kuo said in August 2018 that the earliest release date could be 2023. Previous forecast dates included 2020 and 2021, with successive delays related to the departure of team leaders.

Currently, Ming-Chi Kuo expects the Apple Car to be launched between 2025 and 2027. Apple could partner with Kia to make the car, and the company has approached other automakers including Nissan and Hyundai.
