Byton M-Byte Crossover Specs Versus Tesla Model S And Model X

DEC 10 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 16

How does the Byton M-Byte stack up to the Tesla Model S and X based on what we know so far?

Our good friend Sean Mitchell dives into the upcoming Byton M-Byte crossover. For those unaware of Byton, it’s one of few startups in the EV space that we believe has what it takes to be successful. Along with Rivian, Byton tops our list of new entrants. So, despite the fact that the M-Byte is a future car — while the Tesla Model S and Model X are already available — it just makes sense to inform people by providing a detailed comparison. Sean breaks down everything we know about the M-Byte and shows us how it stacks up to Tesla’s lineup.

If you don’t follow Sean on Twitter, it’s important to note that he’s started to branch out beyond Tesla vehicles. Now, he’s more aggressively covering all things EV-related. In fact, his channel is now renamed AllThingsEV.info. It wasn’t long ago when Sean was sitting at home pumping out one Tesla video after another. Now, he’s taken to traveling often, attending shows, conventions, first drives, unveilings, etc. He’s become a solid advocate for electric vehicle adoption and a top-notch source for EV information.

In this video, Sean focuses on three aspects of the vehicles: battery size and range, dimensions, and performance. He lets us know right away that Byton is using NEDC for its range calculation, which is not representative of real-world range. No worries, however, as Sean accounts for this in his comparison. In terms of dimensions, the M-Byte is shorter than the Model S and X, though it rides on a wheelbase that is about the same as the Tesla vehicles. In addition, it’s about as tall as the Model X.

Watch the video to learn about Sean’s observations. Then, share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.

Way to go on deception by using a screen capture of the false range figures.

No deception – just reporting what Byton has publicly communicated.

That range is hard to believe.

Show me the US/EU-standard crash tests of these Chinese EVs then we can talk.

Plus charge discharge cycle testing and UL listing on all charging components.

and how many M-Byte are on the road today?
and when will I be able to purchase one in Arizona?
Let me test it and then we can talk.

Looks like the faraday suv…

Nio as well can make it. SF motors not sure. Might get brought off. FF died. Lucid died

Lucid died? When did that happen? Last I heard they got a $1 billion investment to start production…

Uncorked Model S 75D develops 330KW which is 440HP. This is in line with the 100D which has slightly more HP but more weight and about the same 0-60.

Meh.
I always liked the large screen. I thought it looked good and could be useful… Obviously driving and night you are going to want 2/3rds of it switched off… Anyway those range figures are terrible. Tesla’s are just so aerodynamic.

The NEDC range figures for the current Tesla’s are as follows:

Model S (75)304 (100)393
Model X (75)259 (100)351
It might help for comparison. Tesla still only lists NEDC here in the UK. Really annoying as almost all other new EVs are sold on WLTP range.

All EVs are welcome. If they start producing them with those number, super. Just like Mustangs, Cameros, and Challengers all exist; so can many EVs. It’s what produces innovation.

Hi James 2.

How did we both get the same handle on IEVs?! I’d say I’m James 1 because I’ve been here much longer, and been a contributor of articles as well.

Just concerned that everyone here thinks we are one in the same person.

Steven?

Can anything be done?

All I can do is suggest that he changes his handle. I can change it here, but I can’t change it every time he posts. If that doesn’t work, you can add something to yours as well.

With a name like James, how do you know that one is the same person? Could be 50 James’ posting here. Just like I’m Jason, I’m not complaining because someone else posted as Jason. None of you personally know me anyway, so what difference does it make? Just take each post on its own merit. If the conversation continues, but the tone/style changes dramatically, is probably a different poster using the same handle.

Ok I know how long the cars are and how far they’ll go. There’s no other info about this car available ?
