Apple suppliers are organizing to produce and assemble the Apple Car, according to a new report from DigiTimes.

Foxconn has already unveiled its own chassis and platform to help automakers bring electric models to market faster. Meanwhile, Luxshare is teaming up with Chinese automaker Chery to build new cars.
According to various sources, Apple would like to collaborate with the two historical partners for the production of the first Apple Car, since the two companies have proven to be very reliable in recent years.
