Last year, Dyson announced that it plans to build an electric vehicle which is set to be ready by 2020. Using a Dyson-designed platform and featuring solid-state batteries like most electric cars, not much has been heard about its progress till recently.
According to Financial Times, Dyson plans to have three electric vehicles in its line up and its first model is rumored use lithium-ion batteries rather than solid-state batteries. It then went on to say the model has been delayed as he said the car is now on track to be launched in 2020 or 2021 as the company is “investing heavily in new battery technology” but “those sorts of technologies can take some time to get there.”
The first vehicle is said to be a a limited production vehicle used to gauge consumer interest and prepare the company for automotive production, paving the way for the later two models to be mass produced.
