Apple now has 55 self-driving cars in California

Apple Holds Product Launch Event At New Campus In Cupertino There is definitely a non-zero chance that these two are testing self-driving cars in a volcano lair

It started out with just 3 registered cars in April a year ago, and that number has now expanded to 55. That's up from 45 cars in March, and 27 in January. Citing information from the California Department of Motor Vehicles, the website reported that Apple has 55 test cars in California. The fact that it's adding more cars to its fleet suggests that this new line of thinking is working out for it.

Since Apple has 55 cars undergoing testing right now, that makes it the second largest self-driving fleet in California. Waymo has 51 cars in the state, but also has 338 registered drivers. This is pretty much what all its rivals have been doing as well, but in Apple's case the brand may never progress to the point where it'll be building its own self-driving electric vehicle.

This indicates a margin of error that's worth considering before rushing into fully self-driving trials; before the public can accept autonomous cars as a reliable alternative, companies need to gain its trust. That puts it four cars ahead of the latest figures we have for Waymo, Alphabet's self-driving auto division thought to be among the leaders in the sector. Waymo had the largest gulf between its self-driving auto permits and the number of drivers at 51 vehicles and 338 drivers.


On Tuesday, the sources said, "Apple has almost doubled the number of self-driving cars in its California test fleet". Apple CEO Tim Cook has called self-driving "a core technology that we view as very important".

Of course, having more automobiles on the road doesn't actually mean Apple has advanced beyond its peers. Then in the issued permits were given only three hybrid Lexus RX450h 2015 model year and six-serving test drivers.
