Digital revolution.

By 2009, we’d created the 200W Dyson digital motor V2. Small and light, it span at 78,000rpm, providing the power we needed for our first cord-free stick vacuum.

Dyson battery pack in testing

Powered up.

In 2014, our new motor powered the Dyson V6™ stick vacuum. With a redesigned nickel manganese cobalt battery, it had 150% more power than its predecessor, and a run time of up to 20 minutes.*

Selection of Dyson vacuums and prototypes

Fully refined.

But we didn’t stop there. We doubled the run time of the Dyson V6™ vacuum with new battery technology, and cut noise by 50% with improved acoustics. And we designed the 425W Dyson digital motor V8.
