In a message posted on the company’s website, company founder and CEO James Dyson praised the automotive team for developing a “fantastic” and “ingenious” car, but said “we simply cannot make it commercially viable”.

Dyson electric car confirmed for 2020 launch

Dyson confirmed today it aims to launch a battery electric vehicle by 2020, taking the brand well beyond the fans, vacuum cleaners and hand dryers it's known for today. At present the company has 400 staff working on the project, and has committed 2.0 billion pounds ($3.4 billion) in funds to bring the vehicle to reality. A production facility has yet be named, and the company has yet to provide any specifics about the vehicle's range, power, performance numbers and body style.
