Byton is a well-funded Chinese EV startup loaded with former BMW executives. The company plans US sales of the all-electric M-Byte SUV, its first vehicle, by fall 2020. The rear-wheel-drive SUV measures about the size of a BMW X5. It could be priced as low as $45,000 for the 250-mile, 250-horsepower version.
