Apple car, by the giant iPhone maker was in the news from quite sometime now. Initially the company had reportedly announced that they will launch the self driven Apple car in 2024. According to the latest update from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said the Car might not arrive until 2027 and there is even a possibility that its launch would be pushed back to 2028 or later. This news might have saddened some.

Reasons for the delay in the launch

Despite predicting the market is “too bullish about the Car,” Kuo cited three reasons why the delay will happen.

  1. There is no specific date for the launch of the car.
  2. The specifications and supplier information is scarce.
  3. The level of competition is unknown to apple once they enter the vehicle segment.

Apple works on the finesse of its products, hence it is expected that the car will have world class specifications and technology. So if you want to experience the best in segment and best in class technological specifications, the wait is worth every second.

Kuo has said that even if the development on the Apple Car begins this year and continues as expected, it will still take Apple more than four years, pushing the launch to somewhere between 2025 and 2027. However, considering Apple’s standards for its products and the pace at which the EV and the self-driving industry is changing, Kuo said he “would not be surprised” if the launch gets pushed back to 2028 or even later.
