Dyson will build ten miles of test tracks for electric cars at its Hullavington airfield site in the Cotswolds in the second phase of its 500-acre campus project.

It's an ambitious plan for the 27-year-old British company, which mostly focused on building vacuums until announcing it would be spending $2.8 billion to build an electric vehicle in 2017.

Mariano Diaz is a Real Madrid player
Real Madrid have been in the market for a new attacking addition all summer, following the shock departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. The player will be presented at the Santiago Bernabeu on Friday at 13:30 (CET) and will later hold a press conference.

The company, which is best known for its vacuum cleaners and hand driers, will invest a total of £200 million ($260 million) in its new technology center at Hullavington Airfield in Wiltshire, western England, it revealed in a statement Thursday. Much of Dyson's bet on electric cars is based on its purported development of solid state batteries, which are the next big technological advance beyond today's commonly used lithium batteries. 400 members of its automotive team have already moved in, and when it's done the site will be able to accommodate 2,000 workers.

That money will include the construction of 16 kilometres of test track. Dyson is specifically considering setting up a dynamic handling track; an off-road route; a high-speed section; and some test slopes, to allow for thorough testing of its upcoming battery-electric vehicle.
