Apple Electric Car – level 2

15-02-2021 15:00

The Apple company changed business with electronics when it made the first iPhone. In 2015, Apple started to think about making an electric car without a driver, and many people think that it will be special, too.

Nobody really knows much about Apple´s plans for an electric car because the company keeps it secret. To build a factory for electric cars takes a lot of time, and it costs a lot of money. It seems that Apple will work together with a company which makes cars. Last week, two Korean automakers Hyundai and Kia said that they were not working with Apple on an electric car, and it is not clear which company would like to work with Apple.

Sales of electric cars are growing fast in Europe. Experts say that there could be around 800 million electric cars in 2050.

Difficult words: electronics (TVs, computers, phones, and other things), secret (something that other people do not know), automaker (a company which makes cars).
