Two hours west of London, at an abandoned Royal Air Force base, a major electric car initiative has begun… by none other than Dyson.
Most of you know Dyson for its vacuums, hand dryers, and fans. But I, for one, have been waiting for its electric vehicle (EV) for years – ever since it made a key acquisition that I’ll get to in a moment.
Then in November, we found out that Dyson will build an auto plant in Singapore. All in all, Dyson is looking to invest $2.7 billion in EVs. Now, at the old Hullavington airfield, the company will research and test its EV prototypes right at home in the UK.
While the EV field is currently dominated by the usual players – the United States, Germany, Japan, and now China – Britain is looking to get in on the action as well. In fact, it wants to go 100% electric: The UK is considering a moratorium on new cars with gas or diesel engines. (Norway already made that call, and France, Germany, India, and China are mulling it over, too.)
2040 is the most likely date for Britain to go all-electric, while 2035 is a possibility, and 2030 is what Sir James Dyson is pushing.
Dyson’s electric car sounds just as sleek and high-tech as you’d expect. And it plans to deliver it as soon as 2021. While the model is still in development, Dyson’s initial patent images (like the one above) show:
Range is crucial to any EV maker – and especially one that also aspires to make its flagship products (the fancy vacuum cleaners) powered 100% by battery.
In 2015, Dyson acquired a Michigan startup that was working on next-generation batteries. They’ve since parted ways, but we’ve known since 2017 that Dyson is eager to get in on the new technology.
For a vacuum cleaner, strong battery power that allows for cordless design is a nice convenience. For an electric car, a strong battery is a must. You can afford to finish vacuuming later, but you can’t afford to be stuck on the side of the road – and you can’t afford to spend all day charging the thing either.
Lithium-ion batteries have been the standard since the 1980s, believe it or not, when Sony started putting them in its camcorders. After they made it into Apple’s iPhone in 2007, the rest was history. But the next generation of batteries will solve two major problems:
No company wants that. And the current leaders in automotives are dedicating serious cash to solving the problem.
BMW (BMWYY) is shopping around for a supplier of next-generation batteries for its EV, the i3. Others, like Volkswagen (VWAGY), are looking to develop their own. Rumor has it that Tesla (TSLA) is, too, after it acquired a battery startup in February.
All of this revolves around one specific technology that’s safer AND more powerful. Some call it the “Jesus Battery” because, compared to the old lithium-ion technology, this battery is nothing short of miraculous.
As an investor, there’s one thing I particularly like to see when I buy into a tech trend: patents.
Dyson doesn’t just have the smooth-talking billionaire CEO you see in its TV commercials. It has a number of impressive patents across its business. The electric SUV-crossover is just the latest – and surely not the last.
And when it comes to the “Jesus Battery,” one tiny company in southeast England holds some key patents.
Automakers like Toyota Motor (TM) are relying on this company for its electric cars. Yet the company is totally off the radar – for now.
So, you’ll want to check this out before everyone else starts rushing in. I’ve got a full presentation on the investment opportunity in this “Jesus Battery,” which you can view for free by clicking here.
P.S. Insiders are already calling this potential new battery a “paradigm shift” in energy technology. Forbes calls it simply: “The battery that could change the world.”
Trust me, it’s amazing.
This breakthrough device could change just about everything in your life – from how you get around to how you communicate with others… even the way you think about the world.
For early investors, this presents the kind of moneymaking opportunity that could turn a tiny initial stake into an absolute fortune.
Folks who get in on this breakthrough now, BEFORE it’s rolled out on a mass scale, will have the chance to be a part of perhaps the single largest legal creation of wealth in the last 25 years.

Self-driving cars – aka “autonomous vehicles” (AVs) – represent one of the biggest investment opportunities of the next 25 years. This innovation will transform huge portions of our economy and create trillion dollar ripple effects through time. It will create huge new winners in short periods of time. It will demolish losers in equally short periods of time. It’s critical that you stay on the right side of this trend. Learn more here.
Marijuana has been outlawed most everywhere for decades… but now a wave of legalization is starting to sweep the world. This will create massive new markets and massive stock market winners. Learn more here.
If I had to make one bet for 2019 it would be that betting is going to be big. The Supreme Court’s May 14 ruling cleared the way for states to allow sports gambling. And in my 25 years of investing experience, I honestly cannot remember many things that come close to magnitude of the investing opportunity that opened up to us. Massive amounts of money are involved in sports betting, and I expect massive amounts of money will be made, too. Learn more here.
