Apple’s electric vehicle plans have faced several setbacks, including several leadership changes, since the project was approved in 2014. In November 2021, bloombergK Mark Gurman reported that Apple was accelerating work on the project and was aiming for an electric vehicle with full self-driving capabilities. Gurman said Apple was targeting a 2025 launch, but that the deadline could be pushed back due to development challenges.

According to Gurman, Apple’s VP of Technology Kevin Lynch took over the leadership of the electric vehicle project last year. Known for his work on the Apple Watch, Lynch has been at Apple since 2013, and before that he was an executive at Adobe.

Rumors of an Apple Car are all over the map, but if the team is successfully reorganized, the vehicle could launch in about three years at the earliest.
