Dyson Says It Is No Longer Making Plug-in Vacuums as It Concentrates on Cord-free Models and Air Purifiers

Dyson has stopped making full-size, plug-in vacuum cleaners and revealed the products that will replace them.

The company is going to focus on its smaller, battery powered models, it said. It made the announcement as it revealed its new Cyclone V10 cordless vacuum, which it says is "why weíve stopped developing corded vacuums".

At the same time, the company launched the new version of its Pure Cool fan, a purifier that is able to clean things out of the air. Together, Dyson hopes the new products offer the future of "clean home technology".



The new vacuum is powered by a motor that is by far the most powerful and efficient ever made by the company. It also makes the new cleaner the most effective in the cord-free, stick-shaped category, it said.

Dyson said that it had done detailed research that demonstrated people thought they needed a full-size, plug in vacuum to properly clean their homes. But the new motor is powerful enough to get rid of that need, it said.

"A strong performing machine starts with an efficient motor," said James Dyson, founder and CEO of the company. "The Dyson digital motor V10 is Dysonís most advanced. It has enabled us to entirely change the format of a vacuum cleaner, and to achieve Dysonís best ever cord-free machine performance.

"The Dyson Cyclone V10 vacuum is so light, so powerful, it can deep clean anywhere in your home, on any floor type. It is the reason Iíve stopped developing full-size vacuums."

At the same time as the new vacuum was released, Dyson revealed that it would update its purifying fans. They now are able to sense the pollutants that they're cleaning out of the air, which can then be displayed on a screen built into the fan, and it has an improved filter to remove more of them at the same time.

"At Dyson we develop machines for real people and real homes, creating technology that works well in the test lab but more importantly doing what theyíre expected to do in a real-world setting," said Paul Dawson, Dyson's vice president for Health and Beauty. "To clean the air at home, a purifier needs more than a filter. It needs to automatically sense pollution, capture gases and ultrafine particles, and project clean air to every corner of the room. The Dyson Pure Cool purifying fan does all of this, making it the only purifier fan to clean a whole family room properly."

This is actually a bit of fake news in the headline by the "Independent" above.

In Dyson’s current full-size range there are seven core machines – three cylinders and four uprights. A Dyson spokesman said: “We are no longer developing new full-size [plug-in] technology but we will continue to sell those high performing full-size machines.”

In other words, the "Independent" is wrong by claiming they are "no longer" making them, rather the current model range won't be replaced - which isnt the same thing as the current model range could soldier on another ten years.

It may also mean they will continue to develop smaller (ie - not full size) corded machines.

I also disagree with this:

I'd put a Dyson V10 against a Sebo X series upright corded vacuum any day of the week. There is no doubt at all that the Sebo not only costs less, but will outperform and outlast the Dyson.

I really hope that they still continue making the current range, I keep hearing that they either will stop corded vacuum production fully, or just keep making them

There's still a lot of demand for uprights in particular IMHO
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.
