Apple is set to sign a memorandum of understanding for the production of electric vehicles with a joint-venture company recently created by electronics and battery specialist LG Electronics and automotive contract manufacturer Magna, according to reports from South Korea.

If LG's reputation with appliances is anything to go by, this thing will be a hard pass.

"according to reports", "says report" ... what friggin report ffs! this apple EV thing has been doing the rounds for the last 3 years or so! most recently the latest hot "report" was that they were working on a deal with hyundai/kia. I'll believe it when I see it!

Also, despite LG being one of the big suppliers for batteries, their track record in that regard is also less than stellar (looking at kona recall and bolt(?) issues).

The interview Tim Cook did with Kara Swisher makes it seem more likely.

Apple have been around the block so much with this, and just doing the software was never their thing, always leveraging custom hardware/software.
