BYTON – Video Roundup, Including Test Drives, From CES
If you thought that Tesla has the largest screens in the industry, you’d be wrong.
Here is the BYTON Concept SUV with its gigantic 125 x 25 cm (49 x 9.8 inch) Shared Experience Display center console.
This all-electric SUV, shown at CES, is scheduled for market launch in 2019 in China, followed by Europe and the U.S. in 2020.
BYTON bets on autonomous driving and because of that, they put inside many displays (including the one on the steering wheel) to keep you busy doing stuff while riding along, not driving.
Entry level price is estimated at $45,000. BYTON has already sketched out plans for sedan and MPV in the following years, provided this first model sells well.
Two battery pack options and powertrain options will be available:
- 71 kWh for 350 km (217 miles)
- 95 kWh for up to 520 km (323 miles)
Two powertrain options are considered:
- 200 kW and 400 Nm rear-wheel drive
- 350 kW and 710 Nm all-wheel drive (200 kW rear motor and additional 150 kW front motor)
Here are photos and videos gallore, including demo rides:
