Dyson Reveals it’s Scrapped No Joke Electric Car

As Engadget reported: The seven-seater had almost twice the range as Tesla’s Model X.

They added to:

According to The Times, Dyson revealed that his electric vehicle, codenamed “N526,” would have been a seven-seater with a whopping 600-mile range per charge. This was largely thanks to the company’s proprietary solid-state batteries, which could apparently sustain such performance “even on a freezing February night, on the naughty side of 70 mph on the motorway, with the heater on and the radio at full blast.” Assuming that 600-mile figure is based on Europe’s WLTP standards, it’s an impressive jump from Tesla Model S’ 379 miles and almost doubling the long-range Model X’s 314 miles (the latter also a seven-seater).

As the Times.uk reports about speaking with Sir James Dyson. “This is the first one that ran. I drove it secretly in a screened-off compound we have here,” says Sir James Dyson. It is 11am on an early spring day at Dyson’s new research centre in Wiltshire and Britain’s best-known innovator — and now Britain’s richest person — is showing off his most keenly anticipated invention. Keenly anticipated, that is, until he scrapped it. He calls it N526, but to you and me it’s the Dyson car.

It’s the first time he has shown the seven-seater, electric SUV with a 600-mile range to anyone outside his firm — the picture, above, is the first to be published.
