Sir James Dyson has revealed plans that he is to launch their first electric car in 2021.
The entrepreneur said the new electric car will be “entirely designed, manufactured and sold” by the company.
In a letter to staff Dyson said the car will contain “fundamentally new technologies and make some inventive leaps.”
Sir James has called on his staff to keep secret the key details, and a number of patents “don’t reveal what the vehicle will really look like or what it will do.”
What was revealed by Sir James is that advances in aerodynamics, efficiency and vehicle architecture of the car have been made.
Patents do highlight that Dyson could use “very large wheels” to suit bumpy terrains with improved “range and efficiency.”
Dyson has put aside £2.5bn to invest in the new project, and the car will be manufactured at Dyson’s new headquarters in Singapore and will not be manufactured in the UK.
However, testing of the new cars are expected to take place at their campus Hullavington Airfield in Wiltshire.
