  • What?? NO gab on the Apple Car???? What the….??? Seems I called this too last year when the foolish idea appeared here that Apple would make a car – I predicted NO, at best they are working on a “system”, but not stupid enough to get into the car mfg biz. Now, I’m a bit jealous that Apple employees have BOTH a unique Apple Bike (tho low-tech not the one I want them to make) to drive around campus and now an autonomous VW to go to work in. 🚴‍♀️ From GCR:
    After years of trials aimed at remaking driving in the mold of the iPhone, Apple is finally building some self-driving electric cars to test on roads in the San Francisco Bay Area—and they’re Volkswagen buses.

    The New York Times reported on Thursday that, after years of looking for a partner among automakers, Apple has teamed up with the German automaker to convert VW T6 vans into self-driving, electric shuttles to ferry Apple employees to and from work at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. The Times cited several former employees of the Apple self-driving car team.

    The vans will be outfitted in Italy with Apple’s self-driving sensors and software, along with an electric powertrain and batteries.

    Green Car Reports reached out to Volkswagen and a spokesman for the automaker declined to comment.
