N526 exactly five meters in length and with big wheels, wheels, according to the engineers, one of the most interesting aspects of the machine; because of their size auto gets better traction, and driver control and the ability to easily handle bumps and potholes.
Motor Dyson electric car was developed in-house — it includes the Dyson digital motor, single-speed gearbox and a modern power inverter. These compact and lightweight units have been installed on the subframes front and rear.
Rechargeable high capacity battery has been developed as an integral part of the body structure to more efficiently optimize both the weight and the space available for passengers in the cabin, as well as to provide needed rigidity and protection against impacts, said Dyson.
Aluminum case the battery pack had a flexible design that allows you to install different sizes and types of solutions for the battery cells during the entire lifetime of the platform of the vehicle without the need of any significant upgrading.
As for the interior, the company wanted to establish an elegant, constructive seat with sound posture support. The car has three rows of seats that can accommodate seven adults.

As the headquarters for its automotive project the company used a former airfield which was bought from the British government. Now that the project of the electric vehicle is closed, Dyson uses areas of the airfield for development of proprietary ventilator. The premises will be given to teams in robotics, environmental protection and other specialists.
Regarding the closure of the project, James Dyson said that the team learned a lot during the development of the electric car brand and many achievements will be used in future products of the company.
