The Only Thing Dyson Sucks At Is Making Electric Cars

Illustration for article titled The Only Thing Dyson Sucks At Is Making Electric Cars

Remember all of the hubbub about James Dyson, the man behind the Dyson line of vacuums, tossing his hat into the electric vehicle ring? Yeah, not so much. A company spokesman eliminated the chance for years worth of "electric cars suck" puns, saying "James did say that our digital motor could power a car, but we are not working on, and have no plans to create, an electric car." So what do they have plans to create?


Even from the initial reports, it never seemed as though Dyson wanted assemble vehicles himself; rather, it seemed he was alluding to selling motors and technology to current automaker. So, while we take Dyson's statement that they're not working on an electric vehicle as truth, that doesn't mean we won't hear about the company in a vehicular capacity again at some point in the future.

I guess the rumors of a Swiffer car are unfounded as well.
