Dyson has expanded its workforce to 400 automotive jobs and is seeking a further 300, all to work on its EV project

This year, the already 400-strong automotive team will move to a new state-of-the-art building at the 750 acre Hullavington Airfield, which will serve as Dyson’s second research and development campus in Britain.

The company announced in 2017 that it had been developing “an electric vehicle” for the past three years, at its Malmesbury campus.

Dyson’s UK employment has swollen to 4,600 – an increase of 250% – as the company invests in electric vehicles, power systems, motors, vision systems, filtration systems, robotics, machine learning, and AI.

Dyson is also expanding abroad, with an investment of £330m in a new Technology Centre in Singapore that will serve as a hardware, software and advanced manufacturing facility, and could be the location of any vehicle production Dyson undertakes.
