Tesla Motors CEP Elon Musk said Apple might be their close rival compare to Google. Tesla is watching the competition closely which include Apple and other car manufacturers.
Google’s done a great job of showing the potential of autonomous transport, but they’re not a car company. Apple, yeah, that’ll be more direct. I think they should have embarked on this project sooner. The sheer scale of automotive manufacturing, it’s hard to appreciate until you see the plants. I hope it works out.
Elon Musk also added he does not have any latest information regarding Apple’s Project Titan, but he said Apple may have missed an opportunity because a dozen of car companies are also in a high momentum producing electric vehicles for the masses by 2020.
