A few years ago, the world’s largest electronics manufacturer announced that it would release its own electric car. Much has been written about this project, despite the fact that the development of the car was thoroughly “classified”. As a result, the electric car never made it to the conveyor.

Patent images of the Dyson electrocrossover appeared on the Web. The sketches are shared by the Autoweek portal. It is known that the development of this battery SUV cost the company £ 500 million. The project was unexpectedly decided to close in the fall of 2019 for financial reasons: it was considered economically unprofitable.

Such a car, if it went into production, would cost 150 thousand pounds. There would be few buyers willing to pay such a substantial amount for a car. In general, the electric car turned out to be “excellent”, so it’s a shame that this project was eventually abandoned. Moreover, the car itself was close to production.

The patent sketches show that the electrocross gets a strict body geometry and minimalistic design without unnecessary decor and relief. The doors of the electric car open against the direction of travel, and traditional exterior mirrors have been replaced with miniature cameras. The electric car is shod with original multi-spoke wheels.

Such an electric car on a single charge would easily cover about 965 kilometers.

The power of the twin-engine power plant of the electric car would be 543 hp. It would accelerate to a hundred in just 4.8 seconds, and its maximum speed would reach 200 km / h.

Earlier we talked about how the situation on the electric car market can change by 2025. By this time, the German Volkswagen may become the industry leader, which will displace Tesla from the first position.
