Will Dyson’s EV suck, or blow us away?

James Dyson, the UK-based vacuum mogul, has announced today that his company is going to build an electric vehicle in an attempt to improve air pollution.

In a statement released to his company today Dyson admitted his interest in improving emissions from traditional internal combustion engines dates to a scientific paper about toxins in exhaust gases way back in 1988.

James, the founder and head of the Dyson company, said there is already a 400-strong team (which he is increasing aggressively) working on the project, and has committed GBP2mil to building a production electric vehicle, to be launched in 2020.

No details will be released publicly yet in the interests of staying ahead of his competition in this field, but fascinating times are ahead as the EV movement gathers momentum!
Who knows...they have a nice product in their vacuums - not the best and in my opinion a bit to high priced but nice reliable product. If they can come up with a car like that then good for us as consumers

I'm hoping they come up with a really affordable smart car like vehicle something that we are able to purchase for our kids to get to and from school but not so much highway driving at a really really great price

Dyson electric car: Vacuum cleaner company to launch 'radical' battery-powered vehicle in 2020

'I'm committed to investing £2bn on this endeavour'

Dyson has confirmed it will launch a battery-powered electric car in 2020.

The vacuum cleaner company, which will spend £2 billion on the project, says its vehicles will be "radical and different".

Sir James Dyson has decided against revealing any specific information about the vehicle, but the announcement had been expected for some time.

"We've started building an exceptional team that combines top Dyson engineers with talented individuals from the automotive industry," he wrote in a letter to employees. "The team is already over 400 strong, and we are recruiting aggressively. I'm committed to investing £2bn on this endeavour.

"The project will grow quickly from here but at this stage we will not release any information. Competition for new technology in the automotive industry is fierce and we must do everything we can to keep the specifics of our vehicle confidential."


The company will be entering a crowded market that Tesla, Nissan, BMW and many more car manufacturers are striving for dominance in.

According to Sir James, a team at his company began work on a cyclonic filter that could be fitted to a vehicle's exhaust system "to trap particulates" back in March 1990, but the project was stopped a few years later, as "nobody at the time was interested" in the system.

"At this moment, we finally have the opportunity to bring all our technologies together into a single product," he said.

"Rather than filtering emissions at the exhaust pipe, today we have the ability to solve it at the source."

Citing a study by King’s College London, he added that thousands of people die every year in the capital alone due to long-term exposure to air pollution.

"It is our obligation to offer a solution to the world's largest single environmental risk. I look forward to showing you all what I hope will be something quite unique and better, in due course."
I believe air pollution is a problem we all must try and solve. I applaud Dyson's approach to it and the venue he found to express himself. I can hardly wait to see what he comes up with
