Apple Car - Over 255 km / h, charge to 18% in 80 minutes, over 480 km range

With reference to the mostly right Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shows 9to5Mac in one Articles the possible dates of the Apple Car on. The electric car with a design from Cupertino, California should therefore be based on a Hyundai chassis. However, many of the elements and systems used on it could be developed by Apple itself. Therefore, market entry is not yet to be expected in the coming years either. Nevertheless: Some data can already be taken from the current information.

The first details on the Apple Car can provide the data on the Hyundai chassis. In addition, Ming-Chi Kuo shows when and under what circumstances the Apple car can be expected.

Apple Car - Comparative data for the Apple car

The data of the Hyundai chassis have been known for a few months. Therefore, a few data can already be given that can be used for a comparison with other electric vehicles as well as other operated cars. This overview is offered, for example, by 9to5Mac in the article linked above:

  • Acceleration: 0 to 60 mph in 3,5 seconds, i.e. from 0 to 100 km / h in approx. 4 seconds
  • Maximum speed: 160 mph, i.e. around 255 km / h
  • Range of one battery charge: more than 300 miles, i.e. more than 480 km
  • Charge the battery (regular): 80% battery capacity in 18 minutes
  • Charge the battery (fast charge): additional 60 miles (97 km) range in 5 minutes

Apple's electric car is not expected before 2025

Referring to the statements of Ming-Chi Kuo, the Apple Car is not expected to hit the market before 2025, probably even a few years later. In the 9to5Mac article he is quoted as follows (freely translated):

We predict that Apple will not launch the Apple Car until 2025 at the earliest. Experience shows that the new iPhone takes around 18 to 24 months from the first specs definition to mass production. In view of the longer development time, the higher test requirements, the more complicated supply chain management and the very different sales / after-sales service channels for automobiles, we believe that Apple, which lacks automotive experience, is already a tight one On schedule if it wants to launch the Apple Car in 2025.

If Apple does not rely on components and software from the mass market or other manufacturers, but wants to build its own supply chain, then the car will "significantly later than 2025" to be published. Because every e-car has 40 to 50 times more components than a smartphone - to put that in a comparison. Furthermore, it is said that the delay to be expected with Apple's own components will have a negative effect on the competitive advantage. So it remains exciting to see which path Apple will take here.

  1. That will give the illegal car races a real boost.
    Such a rapid acceleration as well as the top speed is insane and not only superfluous in view of today's traffic density. Of course, this top speed has also long existed in conventional vehicles.

    1. Hello Uwe! The first thought came to me too... Why 250 km/h? Everything has to be geared towards that. Brakes, gears, etc. If you took 150 as the top speed, you would have set an example. But then, of course, the wealthy racers who collect them with the thing are no longer there. I only drive 120-130 km/h most of the time and could have lived with a lower top speed. But maybe they will also make the Apple Car "mini" into the "Pro Max" model. :D
