Market Overview

We’re Dyson, a global technology enterprise. For over 25 years we’ve been finding new ways to solve real-world problems. From vacuum cleaners with revolutionary cyclone technology to the hairdryer, re-thought. We solve the problems others ignore. Our global headquarters, home to our first R&D centre, is located in the Cotswolds where the Dyson story began. Now from San Francisco to Shanghai we’re over 10,000 people strong. With interests in artificial intelligence, machine learning, haircare and much more. And following our recent announcement into electric vehicles, there has never been a more exciting time to join Dyson.

Function Overview

It has remained Dyson’s ambition to solve the problem of vehicle pollution for nearly 30 years. Now we finally have the opportunity to bring all our technologies together into a single product. Rather than filtering emissions at the exhaust pipe, today we have the ability to solve it at the source. We’ve begun work on a battery electric vehicle, due to launch in 2020.
