Dyson are an engineering company, I can see them licensing their technology for use in others cars.

It's the second time Hoover has been related to vehicles.

Q: What's the difference between a Hoover and a Harley?

A: Where the dirtbag attaches.

There are concerns about its safety, as unlike most cars with airbags everywhere, the Dyson is bagless

"Dyson are going to launch an electric car by 2020"

They sell a hairdryer for 200 that does nothing more than blow some hot air like any other hairdryer. How much are they going to try and sting people for a car?

Maybe they should call it The Verge since that's where it'll most commonly be found parked up, as the HEPA filter clogs and it overheats.

Based on the price of a Dyson hairdryer, compared to an i8 this will cost 315,000

It's a risk but everyone seems to see electric cars as the future.

Will it go the way if their Hoover or the way of their washing machine.

Find out soon.

Dont get me started on the queues at Shells all electric fuel station where half an hour gives an eighty per cent charge... but you can buy the Dyson charging cradle. It means you have to park vertically against your home.

Wife: you are driving me up the wall George
Husband: calm down dear I am charging the Dyson

With Dyson's design approach, we can be sure it will be one of the ugliest cars around. Will make the original Fiat Multipla look like a stunning design.
