- Nissan says that it "is not in talks with Apple" about an Apple Car partnership.
- The statement came after rumors turned their gaze towards the company.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Nissan was "the most likely candidate" to be in talks with Apple about a potential Apple Car partnership. The report came after Hyundai/Kia, who had also been heavily floated as a potential partner, said that talks had broken down with Apple.
The Wall Street Journal report focused on comments made by Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida during a press conference.
Today, a report from the Financial Times (via Reuters) puts those Nissan rumors to rest. A spokesperson for the company said quite directly that Nissan is not in talks with Apple in any sense.
An earlier report from today indicates that Apple is essentially in a "dating game" to find a partner for its electric vehicle ambitions.
