The UK based company, famous for its state-of-the-art vacuum cleaners, will break ground at the chosen site later this year. The first production model of their new Electric vehicle is scheduled to go on sale in 2021.
Dyson management say the decision over the plant’s location was made after factoring in the availability, regional supply chains as well as the proximity to several key target markets. Cost was not said to be a confederation, with Brexit ruled out as a reason for the plant not being based in Britain.
At least £200 billion has been committed to the Dyson electric vehicle project, £200 million of which is to be invested in the UK on research and development, including a test track.
Dyson have not yet revealed what sort of batteries will be used on their new vehicles, or where they will be produced. The company recently wrote off a £46 million investment in US solid state battery company Sakti3.
