Dyson’s car faces low barriers to entry but high barriers to success
Sep 27th 2017
... His plan to invest £2bn ($2.7bn) of his own money, split evenly between
battery technology and vehicle development, shows that the barriers to entry
in the battery-powered vehicle business are much lower than those in the
market for cars with complex internal-combustion engines ...
Even if a Dyson car is ready to hit the road in 2020, Sir James faces other
obstacles. Though demand for electric vehicles is expected to grow quickly
as governments turn against the internal-combustion engine, there may soon
be a traffic jam at the high end of the market ...

Dyson's electric car project has been 30 years in the making

... “The team is already over 400 strong, and we are recruiting
aggressively. I’m committed to investing £2bn on this endeavour,” James
Dyson said in email to employees. “Dyson has begun work on a battery
electric vehicle, due to be launched by 2020.”
But just because Dyson has been thinking about electric cars for decades
doesn’t assure his company will succeed against automotive giants from
Toyota to Volkswagen and upstarts such as Tesla.
Dyson’s bet on electric cars is risky. The £2 billion Dyson plans to spend
on his car and the related solid-state battery project represents
four-fifths of the company’s current annual revenues. And yet it’s less than
Tesla’s capital expenditure in the past 12 months. To scale up production,
Dyson may have to take on debt — or consider going public (something Dyson
has sworn he’ll never do.) And Dyson is hardly the only company working on
solid-state batteries. Toyota has said it believes it will have such
batteries in its electric vehicles in the next decade and Tesla is also
believed to be working on them ...

Dyson to Spend £1 Billion Making 'Radical' Electric Car
... The company is investing one billion pounds ($1.34 billion) to develop
the car, plus the same sum to create solid-state batteries to power it,
Dyson said. These investments will dwarf money the company is spending on
research and development for its vacuums and air filters.
Dyson is joining a crowded field, with manufacturers from Volkswagen AG and
Daimler AG to Toyota Motor Corp. and Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc. all competing to
popularize electric vehicles. While most of these companies are using
lithium-ion batteries in their current models, Dyson said its car would use
solid-state batteries that are smaller, more efficient, easier to charge and
potentially easier to recycle. Toyota is also working on solid-state
batteries and said earlier this year it hopes to have them in electric
vehicles by the early 2020s.
Dyson said his electric car would be “radically different” than those being
designed by other car makers, including Tesla. “There’s no point doing
something that looks like everyone else’s,” he said. “It is not a sports car
and not a very cheap car.” ...
