There is a buzz in the Dyson’s design community. Many lead product designers sitting in the company’s London office are congratulating their Singaporean counterparts on the successful launch of Dyson’s latest wet vacuum cleaner, or shall I say a floor scrubber, as Dyson’s Chinese website likes it to be called. First launched in China, the Dyson Wash G1 wet floor vacuum cleaner boasts multiple hydration levels, features automatic solid-liquid separation, and also has a 140-second self-cleaning mode.
Engineered with style, this is Dyson’s latest bet in an increasingly competitive market of floor cleaners. They already tried gaining some foothold in the vacuum cleaning market with the launch of 360 Vis Nav earlier this year, and now have their hopes resting on the small budget G1. The newly launched wet floor vacuum cleaner has three levels of water volume adjustment that get rid of the dirt and stains on your floors. These three modes can be controlled via an LCD screen which is placed on its handle.
Looking at other core functions, the vacuum cleaner is designed for complex real-life home environments. Thanks to the product’s dual-drive and dual-roller design, the cleaning process is flexible and controllable, and even penetrates deep into the bottom of the furniture. “The actual cleaning area may vary based on usage habits and ground conditions,” states the company.
From a design standpoint, the body of the vacuum cleaner features a dual-drive, dual-roller brush, electric motor, handle, and suction control. It is to be noted that the Wash G1 also has 1,000 ml of clean water tank capacity and 800 ml of grey tank capacity. The auxiliary roller is responsible for separating the solid waste from liquid and scraping it into the debris box, while the main roller brush cleans the floor efficiently.
Having the three-in-one capability of suction, mopping, and washing, Wash G1 has a 99.9% sterilization rate, which sounds like a good advertising pitch, only for reviewers to tell further. The company touts that the newly-launched vacuum has a battery life of up to 35 minutes, in which it can clean up to 290 square meters.
Another highlight of the Wash G1 is that it can self-clean, however, in order to do that, you need to ensure that the vacuum cleaner is back in the base station and is connected to the power supply. Priced at about $682, the vacuum cleaner is only available in the Chinese market as of now. We’ve no words on its US release, but I estimate it could possibly be showcased at CES 2024.
