Creating cutting-edge technology demands unconventional thinking. Which is how motorbike parts and fishing rods helped with developing the digital motor that powers our Dyson V7™ vacuum.

"No-one was designing the type of motor we needed. So we spent eight years developing our own. Without it, our cord-free vacuums could not deliver such power."

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.

Ergonomic efficiency.

The Dyson Digital Slim™ vacuum launched in 2011. With the motor and the battery in the handle, it had the optimum centre of gravity for floor-to-ceiling cleaning – and created a new kind of vacuum cleaner.

Dyson vacuum battery

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.*

But we didn’t stop there. We retuned the battery to increase the run time of the Dyson V7™ vacuum to 30 minutes,* and cut noise with improved acoustics.
