I suspect they're developing some sort of portable rechargeable power bank rather than a cordless vac.  Something like this perhaps?  Been around for a few years now.

As for cordless vacs, I think the current "state of the art" is the new 2 x 18 V Starmix/Cordless Alliance Vac. has this sewn up with their near-corded performance;  4000 L/min, 240 Bar Vac., Capacity; 25 L, runtime;  up to 100 mins & auto on/off operation; via tool-mounted remote vibration sensor.
