Even though they started with vacuum cleaners, Dyson has boldly stepped out to produce a variety of seemingly unrelated consumer goods -- everything from ubiquitous hand dryers to highly coveted hair tools -- and now Founder and CEO James Dyson has announced the company's electric car plan.
Dyson recently confirmed they are developing a battery electric vehicle that is scheduled to hit the road in 2020 with an all-electric drivetrain. News of the electric car plan came out in a company-wide internal email sharing the original vision behind Dyson's cyclical motor design. With an aim to reduce global pollution, though a battery electric vehicle can seem like a stretch, the company is on track to make a positive environmental impact.
