VW + Apple = iCar

2007-08-30 12:02
Berlin - Apple and Volkswagen are discussing the possibility of building an "iCar" which would feature products by the producer of the ubiquitous personal music player.

Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs and Volkswagen's chief Martin Winterkorn met several days ago in California, and plan to meet for further discussions, said Hans-Gerd Bode, a spokesperson for VW.

There are "scores of ideas," but few concrete plans at this point, Bode said.

Market experts have estimate that a compact car upgraded with Apple products would be of substantial interest to young target groups, according to German financial magazine Capital.

Volkswagen also has plans to produce an affordable compact car.
