Tesla could have been part of Apple if Tim Cook had accepted Elon Musk’s offer when the company was going through bad times.
Musk’s words come in reaction to the latest leak indicating that Apple would be close to having its own electric car, thanks to new lithium iron phosphate battery technology and its connected platform.
Elon Musk has confirmed the rumors that he planned to sell Tesla to Apple, but company boss Tim Cook didn’t even accept a meeting.
It would have been an interesting business because apparently, that is Tesla’s toughest times with the Tesla Model 3 development and production program. It offered Apple the option to buy Tesla for a tenth of what it costs now.
It was more than evident that Apple was not interested at the time in buying an established manufacturer to get into the automotive sector.
Apple may be serious now or may have seen that now is the time to enter the market. Be that as it may, at least we know that in an alternative world, we would already have cars with the apple.
