Dyson scraps £2.5bn electric car project

Dyson’s a private company but quite interesting that they haven’t managed to make this work, given their history of innovation. Having said that, electric cars are largely a software challenge which is / was outside their area of expertise. So perhaps this isn’t too surprising or a bad sign for Tesla or Apple.

Intrigued to know where the failure is. Dyson’s hardware is one of the best in consumer electronics industry.

Let’s hope Jim Rathcliffe doesn’t go the same way with his reinvention of the old style Landrover Discovery in Wales.

I was glad their ventilator wasn’t needed but I was super excited by their innovation and progress to bring something to market.

Does anyone else think they could spin into medical equipment and compete with the big guys?
