Dyson will develop its vehicle on a purpose-built track

“It would be unforgivable if the Government does not grab this opportunity with both hands “It would be unforgivable if the Government does not grab this opportunity with both hands

In its latest highlight, Dyson brought to light an additional $151 million spending project, which includes almost ten miles of test tracks, split into six different courses, for its electric cars.

PLASTIC VACUUM CLEANER ENTHUSIAST Sir James Dyson is to invest £116m on a vehicle testing facility in Wiltshire where the company's forthcoming electric cars will be put through their paces. And this is where said vehicle is going to be developed.

Astronauts are repairing a hole on wall of International Space Station
Even so, there are two possibilities for the most likely culprit - a micrometeoroid or a piece of artificial space debris. NASA and Russian space officials stressed on Thursday, however, that the six astronauts are in no danger.

If the planning application is successful, it will take Dyson's total investment so far in electric vehicle development to at least £200 million, although Sir James has committed some £2.5 billion in total to the project.

The technology center at the former Hullavington Airfield in England will bring the British manufacturer's investment to 200 million pounds to create engineering work spaces and over 10 miles of test tracks, the Sheffield-based company said Thursday in a statement. And if we take a moment to think about it, an electric auto probably has more in common with a cordless Dyson vacuum cleaner than it does with a petrol-powered Range Rover or Lamborghini. "It will quickly become a world-class vehicle testing campus where we anticipate investing £550m, creating even more high-skilled jobs for Britain", Jim Rowan, Dyson's CEO said. "We are now firmly focused on the next stage of our automotive project, strengthening our credentials as a global research and development organisation".

New study pays people to eat avocados
And don't worry if you fall in the control group, you'll still be sent home with 24 free avocados , so you won't be missing out. Joan Sabaté , Loma Linda University's principal investigator , said the financial backers will not affect the study's findings.

Unlike those carmakers that use established lithium-ion battery technology, Dyson will use solid-state batteries it says are smaller and more efficient.

"Our growing automotive team is now working from Dyson's state-of-the-art hangars at Hullavington Airfield".
