Vacuum company Dyson is building an electric auto

Dyson has confirmed plans for an all-electric vehicle that will enter production in Britain by 2020 and has received support from the UK Government.

While most of these companies are using lithium-ion batteries in their current models, Dyson said its auto would use solid-state batteries that are smaller, more efficient, easier to charge and potentially easier to recycle.

A number of pieces of information have either not been decided yet or have been kept secret, including the expected annual production, the vehicle's cost, its range or its top speed. This suggests that it might be a rival to the Tesla Model S in terms of market position.

This year, the company has finally confirmed that it will, in fact, build an electric vehicle to help further its goals. "It is a problem that others are ignoring". Now the company is headed in a new direction: building an electric vehicle. "At this moment, we finally have the opportunity to bring all our technologies together in a single product".

James Dyson says he's committed to investing $2.4 billion in the project. The UK-based company has hired 400 staff to develop the project over the last two years in its headquarters at Malmesbury, Wiltshire.

Despite setbacks, Republicans 'still working' on health care push
The latest repeal effort is being advanced by Senators Lindsay Graham of SC and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Trump questioned McCain's loyalty to his party and his close Senate friend, Sen.

The entry was quickly changed and Dyson declined to comment at the time in a sign of the secrecy shrouding the project.

A final clue to Dyson's plans come from the fact that BMW's current global director of sales and marketing Dr Ian Robertson, who has overseen much of the German car-giant's electric and autonomous vehicle programme, is also non-executive director of Dyson.

Sales figures produced by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries show that just 200 electric cars have been delivered to Australian customers in 2017, less than 0.05 per cent of the 465,000 vehicles sold in the first five months of the year. This is thought to include a designer from Elon Musk's Tesla team (as well as Ricardo Reyes, the company's communications executive) and Ian Minards, formerly a product development director at Aston Martin, hinting at the luxury quality that Dyson may be aspiring to.

This will secure £174m of investment in the area creating over 500 jobs, mostly in engineering.
