Honda refused Dyson's plan to build car at its factory

Attached Image The company that is best known for making vacuum cleaners wanted to build its new electric cars at Honda's U.K. Swindon production site but was rejected.

As seen in an article published by Carscoops, Dyson was said to have sent a letter to a local MP in Wiltshire, which revealed Dyson wanted to make the most of unused parts in Honda’s local factory.

“The most annoying thing is that 12 months ago we went to see Honda at Swindon,” he wrote. “We knew that they were only using one of their assembly buildings, (and we asked) if we could rent the unused one. They refused.”

That said, Honda denies the rejection and in a statement, stated, “We are aware of a letter between Dyson and James Gray MP, the contents of which are factually incorrect.”

Since then, Dyson has already committed to building its electric vehicles in Singapore and recently moved its global headquarters to our sunny island.

After announcing its intentions to make electric cars in 2017, Dyson also released sketches of an electric SUV being developed by the company. Dyson hopes its plant in Singapore will become operational in 2020 and intends to launch its first model in 2021.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
