The company’s plans are very ambitious. By 2027, the concern intends to produce components for 3 million electric vehicles annually and in 2025-2027 to occupy 10% of the global electric car market.
Previously, there were many rumors that Apple is also developing its own electric car, or at least is ready to create and sell the necessary technology to other automakers. However, over time, Apple increasingly began to deny such information.
It is possible that some preliminary developments were actually carried out together with partners. As a result, Apple abandoned the project, and Foxconn now wants to make money on joint developments independently.
