Byton M-Byte Debuts With Massive 48-Inch Center Touchscreen

The official production version of the Byton M-Byte electric vehicle debuted today.

The Byton M-Byte is a Chinese electric vehicle set to launch in North America some time in 2021. It’s a fully electric car/wagon/SUV with the kind of tech to make even Tesla jealous.

Unveiled today at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Byton M-Byte features a massive 48-inch centre touchscreen, a secondary screen on the steering wheel, and a larger touchscreen that serves as the centre console.

The production version of the new electric Chinese vehicle is powered by a 72-kWh battery pack and a 268-horsepower electric motor with 224 miles of range, or just under 400 kilometres. An all-wheel drive version with a 95-kWh battery is said to offer just under 500 kilometres with 402 horsepower.

Other technology in the new Byton M-Byte includes rear-view cameras for improved visibility. Pricing for the M-Byte is expected to be around $45,000 in the U.S. which means roughly $55,000 in Canada.
