Dyson To Enter Electric Car Segment Too?
Dyson, a British company involved in vacuum cleaners, fans and heaters, after the investment in Sakti3 battery start-up earlier this year, seeks to possibly enter the electric car segment.
Max Conze, chief executive, was asked about following Tesla and Apple. He said:
“We are ruling nothing out… Like our friends in Cupertino [where Apple is based] we are also unhealthily obsessive when it comes to taking apart our products to make them better.”
Sakti3 is developing batteries for “our hand-held devices“, but “Sakti3 has the best remit to deliver breakthrough technology into other industries though I could not comment on what they are.”
We should add that many of us hope that Sakti3 batteries will eventually power electric cars, but only time will tell if that happens and what role Dyson will play.
