Apple and Nissan have not agreed to cooperate to create a self-driving electric carFebruary 15, 2021
Apple continues to seek partners to help it launch its first electric car. The American corporation considered Nissan as an assistant, but the parties did not manage to find a common language.
Negotiations between Apple and Nissan on the creation of an unmanned electric vehicle have not progressed beyond the initial stage. This information is shared by the international business newspaper Financial Times.
Discussion of the project never reached the senior management level due to the fact that the companies failed to agree on the branding of future battery machines. Negotiations came to naught after Apple’s proposal to produce electric cars under the logo of the American company. A source familiar with the situation told the FT.
Apple declined to comment. But the company Nissan decided to clarify the information that appeared in the media. According to the operating director of the brand, Ashwani Gupta, the automaker is not negotiating anything with the American company.
We will remind, earlier our portal split that Apple failed in negotiations with Hyundai.
The Koreans were supposed to help the iPhone maker launch its first electric car in the United States.
Previously, Nissan accidentally unveiled a new Z-series sports car. It happened during the official premiere of two other brand new products. It is possible that this was done specifically to attract interest.
