Dyson details EV production plans
Dyson says its electric cars will be on sale by 2021.
Testing and development has already begun in the UK, and now the vacuum cleaning company has revealed it will manufacture the vehicles in Singapore.
Construction of the purpose-built manufacturing facility in Singapore will begin in December and is set to be complete by 2020.
Jim Rowan, chief executive of Dyson says the decision on where to build its first car was difficult.
“The decision of where to make our car is complex, based on supply chains, access to markets, and the availability of the expertise that will help us achieve our ambitions,” he says.
“I am delighted to let you know that the Dyson Board has now decided that our first automotive manufacturing facility will be in Singapore.”
Over 1000 engineers and scientists are employed at Dyson’s new Singapore Technology Centre and Advanced Manufacturing Centre at West Park where it currently manufactures around 21 million motors a year.
