The New York Times reported this evening that Apple entered into a partnership with Volkswagen Group to pair a number of electric T6 Transporter vans with Apple's proprietary autonomous vehicle software. The vans will reportedly be used to shuttle employees around Apple's company campus, and it's not clear whether the deal will extend from there. The Times says that this deal only comes after Apple tried to find a partner in BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Three sources told the Times that the current deal to build shuttle buses with VW is "behind schedule and consuming nearly all of the Apple car team's attention." About one year ago, Apple applied to the California DMV for a license to test autonomous vehicles on state roads.
