Car manufacturers Hyundai and Kia have just confirmed that they are no longer in talks for a possible Apple Car business.

After some reports suggested that negotiations between Hyundai and Apple for the construction of the Apple Car would be soon, things seem to have changed course. In a new report that emerged recently, it was released by Bloomberg website, that Hyundai and its subsidiary Kia Motors are no longer in talks with Apple about their autonomous vehicle.

Hyundai had issued a statement to confirm last month that it would be in talks with Apple to enter into a partnership for the production of its Apple Car. The statement was subsequently revised and declared that the brand would also be in negotiations with other car manufacturers to make the technology available for the construction of autonomous vehicles, but did not provide more detailed information on this matter.

According to a number of sources, it is said that during the past few weeks Apple and Hyundai have actually been in talks. More recently, some reports suggest that Apple will already be working with Hyundai’s subsidiary, Kia Motors, with an investment of about $ 3.6 billion. One such report comes from Korea and suggests that the official announcement could be made later this month.

But last Friday and according to what the Bloomberg website reports, both Apple and Hyundai have put a brake on all these negotiations. Still according to the same site, Apple would be upset by the statement made by Hyundai last month. Hyundai and Kia Motors have now officially confirmed this change to the business.

So, at the current point of view, the Apple Car project still remains to be clarified with regard to the partnership with a car manufacturer.
