LA Auto Show 2018: We Want A BYTON M-Byte!

Everyone is wondering where the automotive industry is heading. GM, most recently, has begun answering the question through some drastic decisions. We think BYTON may hold the key to this sought after answer!

BYTON, whose global headquarters are located in Nanjing, China, have two concepts that tick many boxes. The K-Byte is a passenger car so, for most concerned, somewhat less interesting. For the LAAS however, BYTON revealed the M-Byte Concept that we can’t keep our eyes off of.

The near 5-meter long all-electric SUV is loaded with visual character that not quite position it as an upscale product but very close. As BYTON puts it, the M-Byte is very masculine and sleek with disappearing door handles and hidden antennas.

The all-wheel-drive M-Byte offers an electric range of up to 325 miles or 520km. Through fast DC charging, only 30 minutes are needed to charge the battery up to 80%.

The cabin is equally huge and features some incredible visual details. Not the least of which is the “49-inch coast-to-coast BYTON Shared Experience Display” that essentially doubles as the dashboard. As though that was not enough screen, the driver also has immediate access to a steering-wheel mounted tablet.

Onboard technologies range from autonomous driving capabilities, facial recognition, it can track your health status and much more. 

There’s no word at the moment as to if and when BYTON will officially launch the vehicle but you can build your own online at the moment. We’d opt for Rusty Cabernet with a Silver Sky interior topped with the BYTON Air Span Wheels.
