According to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has another problem with its car development team.
Kuo claims that the project team was disbanded some time ago. The reasons, unfortunately, are unknown, but earlier there were rumors that within Apple itself there are contradictions regarding the vision of the project as a whole.
Kuo also adds that within three to six months, Apple must reorganize this division if it wants to be in time for its goal of starting mass production in 2025.
At what stage the project is now, it is not clear, but, given the goal, it is clearly not at the initial stage.
