A few days ago, this collaboration that would be carried out by the Kia Motors brand, belonging to Hyundai, was already taken for granted, and now we are beginning to know what this may mean. First of all, the Apple Car would be manufactured in Georgia, United States.

There are many doubts to be resolved, such as whether Apple will work with more manufacturers, if your car will be part of the Kia Motors line or will it be a start from scratch or the ambitions that exist to reach the international market. Surely, we will soon clear the doubts, as soon as Apple and Hyundai release a statement that transforms the rumors into certainties.
