As industry watchers think that Apple car is dead, the iPhone maker could launch it anytime between 2023 and 2025, a top Apple analyst with Hong Kong-based TF International Securities has claimed.

“Apple will earn its 2 trillion dollar market cap through its services business, an Augmented Reality headset, and an Apple Car, according to famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who now works for TF International Securities,” MacRumors reported late on Tuesday.

The analyst, who was earlier with Taiwan-based KGI Securities, has reportedly sent a new note for investors, outlining products that he expects to be released by Apple in future.

“Apple will launch an Apple Car some time between 2023 and 2025, with the car set to be positioned as ‘the next star product’. Kuo foresees the Apple Car revolutionising the automobile market much as the iPhone did back in 2007,” the report added.

However, Kuo did not provide details of the possible car or when exactly it might be unveiled.

The Cupertino-based company has largely remained silent on its plans about the Apple Car.

One of Apple’s self-driving vehicles was involved in an accident during the test drive in US’ California, and sustained moderate damage in the crash, the media reported.

Apple’s autonomous car got into its very first crash one week ago in Sunnyvale, according to a report filed by Apple with the California Department of Motor Vehicles this week, The Verge reported on Friday.

However, it does not appear that Apple was at fault for the collision as the software was intact.

Apple is currently testing number of Lexus SUVs in California.

According to the accident details, the vehicle in question was in autonomous mode at the time.

The Apple car carrying special equipment and sensors was hit by a Nissan car from behind.

Both cars sustained damage but neither car’s passengers received any injuries, the report said.

Apple has a fleet of nearly 45 test self-driving vehicles in California.

The company has also partnered with Volkswagen to help create a fleet of self-driving employee shuttles for its Cupertino campus.
