Apple Analyst Says “Apple Car” May Not Come Before 2027 

Kuo also notes that the key point for success for the Apple Car isn’t just the hardware but the training data and AI capabilities.

According to Kuo, the report by the DigiTimes which claims a 2021 launch is utterly false while even the Reuters report is highly optimistic as he believes that the launch will not happen before 2025.

He has told investors to not invest in Apple stock in a knee-jerk reaction to these reports. He cites that the lack of supplier or specification and uncertainty around Apple’s competitiveness for EV and self-driving vehicles could be a major pain point in an early launch.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has said in the past that the self-driving car project is the mother of all AI projects

Earlier, Kuo had predicted a timeline of 2023-2025 for the launch of the Apple Car but with the turmoil that the project has gone through including a recent leadership change which has handed reigns of the product to John Giannandrea from the retiring Bob Mansfield – it is believed that the fate of the project remains highly unclear.

Kuo says if everything were to start in 2020, then it could come anytime between 2025 and 2027. “Due to changes in the EV/self-driving market and Apple’s high-quality standards, we would not be surprised if Apple Car’s launch schedule is postponed to 2028 or later,” Kuo writes.

Under Giannandrea, Apple will get an AI focus as he heads machine learning and AI strategy at the Cupertino based company and previously was Google’s AI czar.
