Reuters reveal Apple is researching on parts and production methods, focussed on electric and connected-car tech along with exploring the option of automated driving.

"Fully automated driving is an evolution. Carmakers will slowly build the market for autonomous cars by first releasing connected and partially automated cars," Reuters quotes an auto industry source as saying. "Apple is interested in all the potential ways you can evolve the car; that includes autonomous driving."

The Wall Street Journal reports Apple had set up a secret lab for developing an electric car. The lab was set up late last year soon after Apple announced its latest wearables and iPhones.

The electric car project is going to be a huge shift in focus for Apple, which is now exploring new technologies other than the iPhones and iPad. Apple's contact less payment, Apple Pay, has reportedly also gained traction, and is expected to go big on its much awaited Apple Watch.
