Share

Apple is said to employ 83 drivers for its fleet, far less than the 407 of GM or even the 338 Waymo drivers with approved permits. According to the DMV figure, Apple has bigger self-driving vehicle fleet in California than Waymo, Toyota, BMW and many more that has makes it the second largest fleet in the state. "Apple is second only to General Motors which performs tests with Cruise - its self-driving division". That puts it four cars ahead of the latest figures we have for Waymo, Alphabet's self-driving auto division thought to be among the leaders in the sector.

Behind Apple lags Waymo, which has 51 vehicles registered in California, and Tesla, which has 39 vehicles.

Last April, Apple first received a permit to test autonomous vehicles in the state starting with only three Lexus Rx450h SUVs.

There are 409 total self driving cars. MacReports first reported some of the new details of Apple's fleet.

One important thing to note here is that Apple has yet to apply for a separate driverless testing permit, which would allow the company to test autonomous vehicles without a person in the auto.

Apple's quickly growing fleet of cars suggests that it's certainly taking self-driving development seriously.

At present, Apple has 55 self-driving vehicles that it is testing on public roads.
