Dyson Planning Electric Car By 2020

“Wherever we make the battery, we’ll make the car, that’s logical,” he said. “So we want to be near our suppliers, we want to be in a place that welcomes us and is friendly to us, where it is logistically most sensible. And we see a very large market for this car in the Far East.”

Dyson added that the team of engineers for the EV project has already been running for two and a half years in secret, although his interest in EV technology goes back almost 30 years, saying the company is not “a johnny-come-lately onto the scene of electric cars”.
