Lithium Race: Bottled Electricity - Does Apple Lease Former Pepsi Bottling Plant For Electric iCar? 






  "As you already know, that the Next Big Thing is based on the Miracle of Bottled Electricity. Lithium Technology allows us to store electricity: the most efficient form of energy known to us - in the very efficient way. Tesla Motors has demonstrated what it means in practice: acceleration of Porsche 911 and smooth silent drive for 300 miles on a single charge. Now cheaper lithium batteries change everything. In order to become first 1 Trillion Market Cap company Apple has to play Electric iCar right. People will pay premium for Apple, but I was always advocating strategic alliance with Tesla. Tesla has all technology in place, Apple has capital, huge brand and Foxconn cheap manufacturing base. Two last pieces to the puzzle: Foxconn is building its own electric cars plant in China for $800 million and Lithium Batteries Megafactory. Mysterious Foxconn electric car for $15k can be another groundbreaking development. In the end Tesla Model 3 can provide the best powertrain and almost all iPhones and iPads are made in China by Foxconn. Lithium is at the very heart of this Energy rEVolution. Stay tuned for our new mix tracks for the International Lithium launch party. Read more."

German publication Frankfurter Allgemeine is reporting that Apple may be planning to use Austrian-based automotive contract manufacturer Magna to manufacture the Apple Car. According to the report, Apple has allegedly created a “secret lab” in Berlin with 15-20 engineers from a number of German car companies.
The Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria will also produce 100,000 units of the new G30 BMW 5 Series. Magna Steyr, whose customers include MINI and Mercedes-Benz, will wind down production of two MINI vehicles beginning this year.
It was also reported then that Apple execs visited Austria to meet with Magna to discuss the car project. Magna was one of the companies present at a global car body conference attended by Sixty Eight Research, a firm widely believe to be a front for the Apple Car division.
In the meantime, Apple continues to expand its rumored car division on US soil also. The Silicon Valley company has reportedly been quietly purchasing and leasing a variety of buildings, while hiring high profile employees.
