After news that Apple is planning to launch a self-driving electric car in 2024, it did not take long for the alleged prototype to appear on the Internet. However, the video that went viral is fake and shows a design that is more than a decade old.
After apparent advances and setbacks, Reuters reported last week that the tech giant is actually moving forward with an electric car, thinking for individual use. And a video with the alleged vehicle to be parked appeared on social networks such as TikTok and Twitter. However, as The Drive pointed out, the model is very similar to a 2013 Mercedes-Benz conceptual model, the AMG Vision Gran Turismo.
What is certain is that, according to the news advanced by Reuters, Apple’s plans go through a “monocell” battery that saves space inside the vehicle. “It’s other level. It will be like the first time we saw an iPhone, ”said one of the sources to the agency.
