Hundreds of Apple employees are secretly working on an electric vehicle that apparently looks like a minivan in its current form, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Dubbed Titan, the year-old project is being headed by former Ford engineer Steve Zadesky who also helped the company create the iPod and iPhone.
The project would take several years to complete, and that’s assuming Apple decides to go through with it, something which isn’t certain as the company often develops prototypes for testing other products and technologies.
However, given the size of the project team, the level of people involved, as well as reports that Apple executives went to Austria to meet contract manufacturers that develop high-end cars, it looks like the company is serious, the report notes.
“There are products that we’re working on that no one knows about,” CEO Tim Cook had said last year. “That haven’t been rumored about yet.”
