Dyson’s electric vehicle to be unveiled in 2020
Investing £ 2 billion in the project, the British vacuum firm has built an exceptional team that combines top Dyson engineers with talented individuals from the automotive industry.
“Throughout, it has remained my ambition to find a solution to the global problem of air pollution. Some years ago, observing that automotive firms were not changing their spots, I committed the company to develop new battery technologies. I believed that electrically powered vehicles would solve the vehicle pollution problem,” said James Dyson, industrial designer and founder of Dyson company.
Dyson didn’t give any details about the type of vehicle has been built by the team, as the two different types of batteries for the electric vehicles were still under development, which the company claims to be more efficient than any other electric cars. Recently, the company hired executives from Aston Martin and Tesla.
“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,” said Dyson.
According to the World Health Organization, around 7 million people died in exposure to air pollution, while a study conducted by King’s College in London said that nearly 9,500 people die each year 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,” Dyson added.
