Apple has halted its long-rumored project to create an electric car, according to Bloomberg. The company reportedly announced the news internally on Tuesday and said many people in the 2,000-person team behind the car will shift to generative AI efforts instead.

Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams and Kevin Lynch, a vice president in charge of the project, informed employees of the project’s discontinuation, Bloomberg reports. Apple’s efforts to build its own electric car have been rumored for years, with a recent report from Wired saying that Apple had driven over 45,000 miles using the autonomous driving tech it’s developed.
