Recent rumours that suggest Apple may be working on an electric car have inspired the website carwow to produce some concept images of what the vehicle may look like. Speculation that Apple may be in talks to purchase electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors inspired the illustrations to have a similar resemblance. Apple obviously has the capabilities to produce such a vehicle, so we’ll just have to wait and see if the rumours prove valid. An electric vehicle would certainly fit Apple’s image. Scroll down for the photos.
The concept photos feature a futuristic interior, large navigation displays, a separate front passenger screen, and of course, a center-mounted iPhone docking station. We can only assume an Apple car would be focused on multimedia. The idea also suggests some sort of autonomous driving capabilities and incorporated apps throughout. Some imagined specifications include:
- 250 horsepower
- 400 Nm torque
- 4 hour recharge
- 310 mile range
- 3 colors
Analysts believe such a car could be available by 2020. Considering Apple has no experience manufacturing roadworthy cars, it seems some sort of merger with Tesla or another vehicle manufacturer would be necessary for success.
