Now, the vacuum is becoming the minivan:DYSON EV SPECULATION HEATS UP
- from Autoline Daily
For the last couple of years, there’s been a lot of speculation that the vacuum cleaner company Dyson, is developing an electric car. And for good reason. In 2015 it bought battery maker Sakti3 to gain access to its solid state batteries. And last year Dyson hired Aston Martin’s head of product development, Ian Minards. And now Bloomberg reports, the company has lured another executive from the British automaker. David Wyer, the Director of Purchasing at Aston, is now the head of Procurement for Dyson. Earlier this year Dyson announced it’s building a new R&D center to develop batteries, robotics and artificial intelligence. It’s also been hiring researchers who specialize in autonomy. Dyson hasn’t confirmed if it’s working on an EV but all this activity suggests it’s got something up its sleeve.
