Dyson Announce Their Electric Car: Launching in 2020
by Faye Duncan
Sir James Dyson is back with another invention…well sort of. He plans to join the world of motoring and create a new clean car to be launched in 2020. Along with 400 staff in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, soon to move to a former RAF base in Hullavington, Sir James has put together a £2bn plan to build an electric car like no other.
Electric cars are the future with some brands already offering a range among their fleet of petrol and diesel engines, including the Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe and BMW i3. Other high-performing makes like Mercedes, Land Rover and Jaguar have announced their plans to jump on the electric or hybrid band wagon, so there’s no surprise that Sir James wants to get involved too. Therefore, we wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted to value your car to start the process of getting your hands on such a revolution in the motoring industry.
Sir James has been dreaming of creating a clean car for decades, throughout the whole process of developing motors and engines since the ‘80’s. He even hinted at his idea on Blue Peter in an interview with Anthea Turner in the ‘90’s, so it’s been a long time coming.
But how much will it cost to buy what he describes as “radical and different” when they are finally created and released? Who knows! Not even the mastermind behind it all knows yet, or he’s keeping it hush hush. In a recent interview Sir James said: “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.”
It’s not his expertise that are holding them back, the motor is complete, it’s the design of the car that they are still working on – there currently still isn’t a prototype to show off, or an annual production total, or the cost of the car, or its range or top speed. There are still a lot of unanswered questions, but we can’t wait to see the final produce already.
What do you think of the electric cars? Will you be interested in the new Dyson edition when it’s released?
