Apple recently announced its latest endeavor; although it might not make it to the public until years from now, there’s been news of the company creating its own electric vehicle. From peaking at theoretic photos, the new ride looks like a bigger car or a smaller van, and we can’t help but think that it looks relatively similar to Tesla’s Cybertruck.
It’s pretty on-brand for Apple to keep their lips sealed when it comes to their new and anticipated products, especially one of the biggest launches to date. We have yet to hear more details regarding the Apple Car since the company is enforcing CIA-like concealment to keep the project under wraps and out of the public’s sight.
Experts have assumed that because Apple is constantly growing its number of patents, there might just be a bigger and broader project in the works within the automotive realm. Leasing experts, Vanarama, compiled all of Apple’s patents to produce a model of what the new Apple Car might look like, and what they found wasn’t all that surprising.
Apple has done it again, striving for absolute modernity within their products, and the forthcoming Apple Car is no exception. The car’s interior has an innovative dashboard, spacious and rotating chairs, a unique steering wheel that isn’t all that wheel-like, and an overall minimalist vibe.
The car’s cabin primarily focuses on display screens from the advanced dashboard, which is what we’re seeing in the modern automotive industry as a whole. Still, we’d expect that Apple will take the screen displays to new and innovative heights. In terms of the vehicle’s exterior, Vanarama said that after studying Apple’s patents, they found many details regarding construction without the need for door pillars.
Not only would this help the driver with fewer blind spots, but it also introduces the unique designs of the rear and front doors. The doors are inverted, and instead of opening the door from front to back, they open from opposite sides to allow for more convenient loading and unloading.
Although Vanarma is publishing many estimates and assumptions regarding the new Apple Car, we should mention that this isn’t necessarily the exact outcome. Apple is known for keeping us on our toes, so what they might end up creating could be completely different than the theories above. According to Autoevolution, if everything goes as planned, we could be seeing the new Apple Car launch as early as 2025.
