German newspaper: Apple wants to offer his car through car-sharing service




Apple wants to bring his car, which was being developed at the moment, in Germany through a car-sharing service on the market, claims a German newspaper. Users would then vehicle can rent for short periods. The service should be available in 2019 or 2020.

The reason for this decision is that the company from Cupertino has no sales and service network in Germany, so reports the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine citing sources. It is unclear whether this strategy applies only to Germany or even the introduction in other countries. The newspaper reports that the car is not self-propelled placed on the market, not even in part. This functionality would be added later.

The development of the car will include place in Berlin, at a secret location. That would work a team of fifteen to twenty young former employees of the German automotive industry on issues such as the search for a possible German cooperation partner for Apple, the necessary permits, and how far competitors are developing electric and self-propelled vehicles .

Construction of the Apple car would take place in Austria. Because of the missing production of the Mini the company Magna would have sufficient capacity to deal with the production of one hundred thousand cars per year. However, a company spokesman was not available, reports the newspaper. The rumors around the empty factory go for some time, as rumors that Apple is working on the car project called ‘Titan’. The focus should thereby be on self-propelled vehicles.
