From "This Apple car concept is a 360-degree maneuverable, self-driving, two-seater for the future" posted Sunday by Yanko Design:
When you think about it, driving solo or even with one other passenger in a five-seater car is a wasteful thing! Many may beg to differ, but I think the purpose is defied when a vehicle capable of ferrying up to five people has just one or two alighting at the car park. That’s the primary reason I may for a minute visualize streets filled with two-seaters.
An Apple Car in that domain is slightly an overboard assumption but then we have been through a number of Apple Car concepts in the past, and all of them have some level of irrationality. Filling the gap between imagination and reality these are the best of what we know the Apple Car would be but the Apple Autonomous concept has a different idea. The two-seat pod for Apple foresees a future where such vehicles will be self-driving from pillar to post carrying and dropping off passengers and quietly moving back to their defined parking spot like a decent Roomba in the house.
My take: At Apple, form follows function. This car looks like it swallowed a couple pairs of AirPods.
