Apple aims to start making an electric vehicle as early as 2020: Report

The iPhone maker is pushing its "car team" of about 200 people to meet that goal, Bloomberg reported.

New Delhi: Apple aims to begin producing an electric vehicle as early as 2020, Bloomberg cited people with knowledge of the matter as saying, a seemingly aggressive target for a mobile devices maker with little experience in car manufacture.

The iPhone maker is pushing its "car team" of about 200 people to meet that goal, Bloomberg reported. But Apple may decide to scrap its car-making effort, or delay it, if executives grew unhappy with its progress, the news agency cited the people as saying.

It is noteworthy that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs admired Henry Ford and dreamed of designing a revolutionary car - the iCar.

Google, Apple's rival, is already working on a self-driving car project.
