He's got the leaving/quitting bug now hasn't he?!

The division employs 500 UK workers.
So that's 500 layoffs...


'Ere! James, why don't you design a cordless (insert word here)?

I reckon James would do well if he partnered up with Anne Summers.
Lithium Ion powered massagers for relentless bzzzz-bzzz action.

This project was doomed from the start. Who'd buy a car where they'd be spinning around in a cyclone inside the car.

yeah, but think of that spotless car interior and boot storage?

Actually, you've just come up with a genius invention. The Dyson road-sweeper or railtrack sweeper?
Just think! It could revolutionise travel into something reliable!!

Cleaning vehicles for streets Dyson. This is an idea. They are in the cleaning industry after all, cyclones would come in handy.

But will it have a digital motor?
Probably couldn't get anyone to work for nothing while making him even richer .
I didn't even realise they had an electric car project. Odd category for them to enter, not surprised it didn't work out.

Yep was moving their head office to Singapore because of the incentive they would offer and tried to buy the Honda plant at Swindon but Honda said no.

Honda said no because they wanted to use/ buy their second car plant which has been gutted and used as a parts warehouse. Why would they sell something they need and use?

That’s not what Honda said at the time, and a quick search now they simply commented they didn’t agree and couldn’t comment fir legal reasons. Will have a search again in the morning as l like to understand what went on, as at the time it looked like they didn’t want to help their own workers find jobs just because Honda didn’t want to another car company making cars there. But as we know we can’t trust most news stories.

I'm currently sat in Honda and can confirm car plant 2 is being used for storage and has been for years. But yes Honda would be stupid if Dyson (or any other car manufacturer) wanted to buy the place once it closes, surely that's how they would get the most amount of money for the place.

Tell your designer buddies to tame down the Civic styling and to make the urban EV have more battery range, at least 250 mile range.
