    So in 2016 James Dyson to much Brexit fanfare said he would be building an electric car in the UK. Well a few days ago he changed his mind.

    Why did he change his mind? He is not allowed to change his mind as Brexiteers have said we made the decision we must stick with it. Dyson made the decision to lose billions but decided against it.

    Why are brexiteers not demanding he sticks to his original decision??

    Why?

    Perhaps he's just been following the Tesla saga; so nothing to do with Brexit.

    Doesn't matter we are not supposed to change our minds. He decided in 2016 and it needs to be done.

    His product looked like cr@p and nobody wanted to buy it. Meanwhile model 3 sales have outstripped supply in the uk.

    people have changed their mind on brexit in both camps.

    a lot really don’t care as long as we get on with it. People will find a way and businesses always moan.

    There is no equivalence there. Everything I have read and seen is that more leavers have changed their mind than remainers.

    Get on with getting poorer. The new normal being s hit is something we should just accept. Weird.

    Untrue actually, polls suggest otherwise.

    Conservative supporters want to get on with it, because Johnson chances of an election win drop dramatically after 31st if not left.

    i think James Dyson decided to change his mind when somebody mentioned the 'no loss of suction' and 'bagless technology' werent really awfully useful in a car.

    Is he not focusing on perfecting the batteries ? That is the thing that will make money, a battery that will be small yet capable of giving mileage comparable to an ICE car.

    Up to a point. But the leaders have IP in temperature control which is important when running hi input or output load.

    Dyson was more of a consumer of Li-ion than innovator.

    I believe there were a few raised eyebrows in the car industry when Dyson believed he could enter the electric car market.

    The fact is the big guns in the electric car world came out of the starting blocks a few years back and with much deeper pockets.

    Dyson has only just caught up with them to the point in the race where a breakthrough in technology needs vast investment and Dyson has realised he hasnt got the bottomless funding available to throw at it.
