Apple and Volkswagen are jointly designing an electric van

For years, we have heard rumours about Apple’s ambitions on creating an electric vehicle. According to The New York Times that has received confidential information from a number of Apple managers, many serious attempts to design an Apple vehicle, or manufacture one with an auto-industry partner have been discarded. Instead of its own car and design, Apple has now partnered with Volkswagen to manufacture an electric van for Apple from the Transporter T6 van.

A self-driving shuttle bus has started transporting passengers in Germany

Everyone who has been on a road trip in Germany has experienced autobahns where the only speed limit is the driver’s belief in his or her driving skills.
