    Dyson invests in electric car market with £200million UK test track | Daily Mail Online

    Dyson plans to clean up in the electric car market with a new £200million UK test track to develop its forthcoming range of Tesla rivals
    Dyson confirmed in September that it would produce a range of electric cars
    It is in the process of converting a former World War 2 RAF base in Wiltshire into its research and R&D hub
    This could be complimented by a new 10-mile track to be used as a vehicle testing ground
    The move is set to create ‘more high-skilled jobs for Britain', Dyson said
    The firm, better know for producing vacuum cleaners and hair drier, is investing £2 billion in all ahead of the electric car’s launch in 2021
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    If his cars are anything like his other products it'll be a re-run of the British car "industry" of the 70s.
    Hard Brexit now!

    got to luv how the Wail managed to mention the war in their report
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Yep. Designed here using R&D grants and subsidies, so paid for by the taxpayer. Say what you like about Dyson, he’s an expert at getting something for nothing.....

    If he launched them on November 5th, the local councils could save on firework bills.

    You mean the multiple patents since plagiarised by every manufacturer from Lada to Ferrari?

    Ah yes that's the reason the British car industry failed. Johnny Foreigner didn't invent anything and nicked all the British ideas.



    Feck me you cretinous Brexiters really do live in a fooking alternative special universe that's all your own.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Like the indigenous electronics and computer industry, it was screwed up by successive know nothing governments.

    Jaguar Rover Triumph was bad enough, joining that to the abortion that was BMC was beyond the pale.

    Rover Production Director Bernard Jackman was responsible for putting the V8 engine into production. Speaking in 1974 he said: ‘It was one of the smoothest jobs we ever had, for it was a brilliantly designed engine from a manufacturing point of view.’

    He added: ‘Its assembly costs are much less than for the four-cylinder engine, and its material costs are not very much more. It was a bit of a squeeze to get the V8 into the 2000 frame, but because it was wide and short we could just do it, with a few modifications to the panels and a few bulges here and there in the underskin.’
    That V8 being, of course, sourced from the Buick Skylark & designed in Detroit by people who knew wtf they were doing.
