Apple doesn't want Tesla to have all of the electric car fun, but when will the iPhone maker get its electric car onto the market? According to The Wall Street Journal, it'll happen in 2019.

The WSJ is reporting that Apple is "accelerating" the project, codenamed Project Titan, where Apple is now reportedly calling it a "committed project" internally. Sources close to WSJ have said that Apple wants to have its first electric vehicle shipped in 2019, so we'll be waiting a fairly long time before we see an Apple logo on a car.

 

Apple has also got plans to triple its team working on Project Titan from 600, to some 1800. The company is also hoping to get some self-driving technology inside of the electric car, which should be able to keep up with whatever Tesla and Google have on the market by then.
