Tuesday, Apple announced it had decided to cancel a semi-secret project to create a self-driving electric car, known as “Project Titan,” which had been in development since 2014. This move will result in the loss of many jobs, with the project’s team either being let go or reassigned within the company, particularly to Apple’s generative AI projects. Apple called it “shifting priorities”, but this cancellation comes amid a broader reevaluation in the auto industry of investments in electric and autonomous vehicles and reflects challenges in bringing such ambitious projects to market.

The decision brings an end to a decade-long attempt to enter the automotive space, which involved numerous pivots and thousands of workers.
