At Dyson our uniquely diverse technology portfolio is being brought together into a single, exciting and different product, the Dyson Electric Vehicle. The next phase in Dyson’s pioneering technology journey.
At Dyson we're committed to revolutionising technology. We enjoy pushing the boundaries of what others have defined as ‘impossible’. Our rapidly growing Automotive team is a blend of both Dyson engineers and fresh talent from a range of industries. The teams are in the state-of-the-art Hullavington Technology Campus in Wiltshire, UK and the Singapore Technology Centre. Shortly we will also be opening our advance automotive manufacturing facility in Singapore.
Our automotive team follow James Dyson’s drive to continually challenge convention. Applying this approach to a range of technologies; in digital motors, energy storage, fluid dynamics, and HVAC systems – to name a few. With a track record of disrupting every product category we enter and a new commitment to investing £2 billion towards this endeavour, this is an exciting time to join our multi-disciplinary team. We’re dedicated to developing better technologies and believe that electronically powered vehicles will begin to solve the problem of vehicle pollution. Join us to help shape our future. And yours.
The complex decision of where to make our car was based on supply chains, access to markets, and the availability of the expertise that will help us achieve our ambitions. Our existing footprint and team in Singapore, combined with the nation’s significant advanced manufacturing expertise, made it a frontrunner. All this, and their strong bias towards developing and using advanced technologies, makes it the right place for our high-quality, technology-loaded electric vehicle.
Our Hullavington technology campus in the UK is a former Royal Air Force station, which was used to train pilots in the Second World War. In 1940 Hullavington was a base for aircraft from Mosquitoes, Spitfires and Lancasters to Douglas Bostons, North American Mitchells and GAL Hotspur troop-carrying gliders. By the end of the war there were more than 1,000 aircraft based on the airfield.
