Apple Keeps Decreasing Its Number Of Self-Driving Cars On The Road In California
Apple is currently operating 66 vehicles on California roads, down from 69 cars, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Apple’s cars reached a peak of 72 cars in November 2018.
A few days ago, we reported that Apple had increased the number of test drivers for its self-driving car project. It seems Apple keeps increase the number of test drivers for its self-driving car project, although the total number of vehicles keeps decrease.
The current figures show that Apple currently has the third-largest fleet of autonomous cars in California:
- GM Cruise: 258 Vehicles and 731 Drivers
- Waymo: 145 Vehicles and 322 Drivers (Waymo has added 10 more cars since last week)
- Apple: 66 Vehicles and 143 Drivers
- Tesla: 32 Vehicles and 136 Drivers
Apple’s motivation and interest in the self-driving market are still largely unknown.
Currently, California has issued 63 autonomous vehicle testing permits, with 819 approved vehicles operated by 2,619 approved drivers.
