You might think you’d have to get a bit further down the road than researching the possibility of a car to make a top 10 list of automotive influencers, but it seems not. The Drive has listed Jony Ive as #6 and Tim Cook as #3 in its list of The 10 Most Influential People in Automotive Technology.

The Drive cites CarPlay and Watch-based car apps as part of Apple’s reach into the automotive world to justify Cook’s inclusion, while Ive is listed as an influencer of car interior design.

As for the Apple Car itself, the latest news is that the company is seeking 800,000-sq feet of space for research and development as the team reaches around 600 people.
