Newsflash: Britain’s technology company Dyson has decided to build its first electric car in Singapore.
Our existing footprint and team in Singapore, combined with the nation’s significant advanced manufacturing expertise, made it a frontrunner.
Singapore also offers access to high-growth markets as well as an extensive supply chain and a highly skilled workforce.
Dyson is truly global in its development, delivery and realisation of technology. This decision is good news for the exceptional teams we have in both the UK and Singapore.
