Dyson will only make new cordless vacuums following Cyclone V10 launch

With the launch of its latest cordless vacuum cleaner, the Cyclone V10, Dyson will no longer develop new plug-in models, focussing development on battery-powered models only.

With the Cyclone V10, Dyson has built a cordless vacuum cleaner that it says has the power of a corded model; something that our full Dyson Cyclone V10 review demonstrates. Although the company will continue to sell its existing range of plug-in vacuum cleaners, it will not be developing new models.

“A strong performing machine starts with an efficient motor. The Dyson digital motor V10 is Dyson’s most advanced. It’s what enabled us to entirely change the format of a vacuum cleaner, to achieve Dyson’s best ever cord-free machine performance,” said James Dyson. “The Dyson Cyclone V10 vacuum is so light, so powerful, it can deep clean anywhere in your home. It is the reason why I’ve stopped developing full-size vacuums.”

At the heart of the new vacuum cleaner lies the new V10 digital motor, which spins at 2000 times a second. As well as being the fastest motor Dyson has ever created, the V10 is also smaller. Making a smaller, more powerful motor created some engineering challenges in order to keep the unit together at such high speeds. To that end, the new impeller has an improved design, with a larger surface area; it has a shaft made of ceramic for stability.

The new design meant that the Dyson engineers could improve efficiency by putting the cyclones and bin assembly in-line (older Dyson cordless models have the bin and cyclones at 90-degrees). This gives the V10 290 Motor Air Watts, up from the 240 Motor Air Watts on the older V8 motor. As a result, the Cyclone V10 removes 25% more dust than the older, but still very good V8 vacuum cleaner.

One of the most important things about a cordless vacuum is how long the battery lasts. With the V10, you now get up to 60-minutes of use, up from the 45 minutes of the V8. That’s more than enough charge to get through your average home. A larger bin that’s easier to empty rounds the system off.

As well as increasing performance, Dyson has knocked £50 off the retail price of the equivalent V8 model. The Dyson Cyclone V10 comes in three variants, as detailed below and is available to buy now.
