Internal deadline for Apple car: Apple executives are allegedly upping the pressure on Project Titan, giving engineers until the end of next year to show that they can develop an autonomous driving system. Only then will Apple decide whether to use it in its own car or form a partnership with a car company.
Fisker bets on supercaps: As reported, the carmaker wants to celebrate its comeback next year, introducing a premium EV with 650 km range. Instead of Li-ion batteries, Fisker seems to use graphene supercapacitors that can only be produced at a low price, due an in-house developed technology.
Toyota claims WEC home win: After two years without a win, the Toyota racer TS050 Hybrid was able to overtake the competition from Germany during the 6 Hours of Fuji of the World Endurance Championship on Sunday. The team Sarrazin/Conway/Kobajashi managed to finish the race just 1.4 seconds faster than team Audi.
Extra range from Germany: The Workhorse Group and BMW i have signed a multiple-year supply agreement. BMW will thus deliver i3 range extender technology to be used for electric Workhorse delivery trucks E-Gen.
