Apple officials have made trips to South Korea for business talks with partners in the semiconductor and display sectors reportedly for their electric car project. Most specifically, meetings with LG, SK and Hanwha, but the talks are still in the early stages. Akira Yoshino, lithium-ion battery expert, speculates that Apple will at the very least share some information regarding its EV technology later this year. Read more for a video and additional information.
Nobel Prize winner Yoshino states that Apple could lead the convergence of the automotive and information technology industries in future mobility. The technology and possibly a concept vehicle may be officially unveiled as soon as 2022, but full on production is at least 4-6 years away, or 2025 when consumers will be able to purchase them from the company.

Tesla has their own independent strategy. The one to look out for is Apple. What will they do? I think they may announce something soon. And what kind of car would they announce? What kind of battery? They probably want to get in around 2025. If they do that, I think they have to announce something by the end of this year. That’s just my own personal hypothesis,” said Akira Yoshino, a co-winner of the 2019 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work on lithium-ion batteries, to Reuters.
