dyson1_verge_super_wideNews Brief: Dyson released its 360-Eye in Japan today — for about $1200 USD — and has also filed legal proceedings against Bosch, alleging that their longstanding rival is cheating EU energy efficiency ratings for its vacuums. Update 28/10/15: Bosch is now suing Dyson for false allegations. 

According to Dyson:

Bosch has installed control electronics into some of its machines to wrongfully increase energy consumption when in use – to cheat the EU energy label … Their behaviour is akin to that seen in the Volkswagen scandal.

Bosch denies the allegations, stating that:

We do not understand these assertions by Dyson and we strenuously reject them. All Bosch & Siemens vacuum cleaners are measured in compliance with European energy regulations. Appliance performance at home is consistent with laboratory performance – and any suggestion to the contrary is grossly misleading.
