CES 2019: More Screens For The Byton M-Byte

One more screen added to what is now the final version of the M-Byte SUV’s luxurious and high-tech cabin.

Still don’t know who or what Byton is? No worries! They are a China-based manufacturer of electric vehicles and judging by the traction their products and surrounding stories are getting, Byton certainly seems to know what’s up – nearly 800 journalists showed up for the press conference!

A year ago, at the 2018 edition of CES, Byton revealed the M-Byte SUV shell or concept. At this past LA auto show, Byton brought and displayed both their M-Byte and K-Bite sedan for the buying public to admire.

For CES 2019, we now have a visual on what the production version cabin will look like. The massive “49-inch coast-to-coast BYTON Shared Experience Display” that essentially doubles as the dashboard is still part of the plan as is the 7-inch screen located on the steering wheel. New this time is the addition of an 8-inch between the front seats that will serve as the M-Byte Environment controller, instead of a smartphone. These screens will connect apps, smart devices and display passenger preferences through facial recognition.

Production of the electric M-Byte is still on track for the end of 2019. If it actually happens, it will be a nice change from typical delays we’ve come to expect from start-ups.
