There are total of 423 autonomous vehicles in California. There were 409 vehicles two weeks ago.

We do not know yet what Apple will do with its technology, since Apple is famous for its secrecy. Apple has not yet publicly announced anything yet. And we do not know exactly what Apple is doing.

Apple is rumored to have hundreds of engineers working on its autonomous car technology.

Apple executives are also frequently meeting with the DMV officials.

  1. Do you know if all the Apple vehicles are the same make, style? Also do you know if any of the vehicles have been enhanced to contain Apple-designed hardware like seats, steering wheels, windshields, etc?
