Nissan denies Apple autonomous cars rumours

Nissan have denied rumours they are in talks with Apple to make autonomous cars.

The Japanese company have been linked to the technological giant as Apple prepare to work on their self-driving cars but they have denied the plans are in place just yet.

A Nissan spokesperson said: "We are not in talks with Apple. However, Nissan is always open to exploring collaborations and partnerships to accelerate industry transformation."

Back in 2017, Nissan started testing their fully autonomous vehicles on the streets of Tokyo.

Takao Asami, Nissan's senior vice president in charge of research and advanced engineering, said at the time: "Ingenuity is at the heart of everything we do at Nissan. Our next-generation ProPILOT prototype showcases technology that will be available for real-world use from 2020. Today's demonstration is another example of our successful work toward creating an autonomous driving future for all."
