NEW YORK (AP) — Apple is reportedly working on an electric vehicle that would resemble a minivan.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the maker of iPhones and iPads has hired hundreds for a secret project to create an electric vehicle. The newspaper cites people familiar with the project, code-named “Titan,” who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr declined to comment.

The Journal says Apple’s industrial design team is staffed with several people with automaking experience. They include Marc Newson, a designer who once created a concept car for Ford.

Apple has confirmed that Newson is on its staff.

The Journal notes that Apple is always experimenting with new products, many eventually abandoned. But it says the senior people involved in the electric car project suggest that it is serious.
