Three new electric cars are expected to launch after 2020 by a company you’d probably least expect to manufacture cars. Dyson, the world-famous vacuum cleaner giant has decided to accelerate into the car market.
The British company stated last year that it is working on an electric car planned to take the stage in 2020. With a dedicated team of 400 people, Dyson has injected $2.6 billion into its electric cars project. Thanks to all these resources, a new report predicts that the company is expected to roll out not one, but three new electric cars after the next few years.
If The Financial Times‘ report is correct, it could show signs that Dyson is actually serious about the future of electric car business. It is an industry that is growing healthily each year, and it is interesting to see a brand based in a completely different market now focusing on it, however, the company’s new project has long-term plans in place.
Although Dyson is investing in technology such as solid-state batteries and carbon fibre material for the trio of cars, the first one of the three will reportedly have a lithium-ion battery in an attempt to get the car into dealerships by 2020. As for the other two, you should be seeing them unveiled sometime during the next decade.
What will the 2020 model look like? Nothing has been made official yet, but Dyson could possibly follow the footsteps of Tesla‘s Roadster – probably not a sports car but could still be a high-end competitor.
Are you looking forward to seeing what Dyson’s cars will look like? Or are you more of a fan of Dyson’s vacuums?
