Chinese Startup Byton to Launch 'Intelligent' Electric Car At CES

  Chinese Startup Byton to Launch 'Intelligent' Electric Car At CES But will Byton fare better than other electric-car startups?Byton is the latest startup looking to break into the electric car business. The Chinese firm will unveil what it calls an "all-new intelligent electric vehicle" at CES 2018 and plans to begin U.S. sales in 2020. But like all automotive startups, Byton faces significant challenges.

Combining all of the next decade' s hot technologies , the new car introduced by start-up Byton looks like something we will eventually drive.

The China-based EV maker simply refers to it as a ‘ Concept ’, but from the looks of it, it is hardly a concept ; it looks like it is destined to roll off the company’ s In addition to the fancy, high - tech interior, BYTON Concept also boasts an innovation called “Smart Surfaces,” which, TBH, I have no

If you could create a car from a blank slate, picking and choosing all the technologies likely to be relevant in the next decade, you would come up with something similar to the concept car startup Byton just introduced at CES 2018.

Kia prepares electric Niro concept for CES 2018

  Kia prepares electric Niro concept for CES 2018 Its booth will also have concepts touting semiautonomy and an embedded 5G connection.Kia will unveil the Niro EV concept at the 2018 CES show in Las Vegas next week. While it's only a concept for now, Kia promises that it will preview "future mobility and technology strategies," so it's safe to assume that this concept could very well reach production, with its other innovations extending to models beyond the Niro in the near future.

Byton , a Chinese-based electric vehicle company, unveiled its concept SUV on the opening media day at CES 2018. The vehicle, which compared to virtually every other CES concept reveal I’ve been to in recent years, looks decidedly normal.

Byton electric car with 300 miles of range and unbelievable interior to launch at CES 2018. BYTON is bringing its brand new high - tech John Lennon' s old mini off- road motorbike set to sell for more than £30,000. Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept REVEALED ahead of Detroit Motor Show 2018 debut.

It's electric, of course, can drive itself, connects to the internet through 5G, uses Amazon Alexa as a virtual assistant, and can even recognize its driver and passengers through facial recognition.

And while you'll find many of these features on any vaporware concept car, Byton has a concrete timeline for production, and even a price target. Headquartered in China, Byton will launch its first car there in late 2019, followed by US and European launches in 2020. Byton expects to sell the car for about $45,000. 

The advent of modern electric vehicles created something of a Wild West in the automotive industry, allowing for the rise of well-funded startups. Tesla is the premier example. Byton looks to be on solid footing, as it boasts headquarters in Nanjing, an investor office in Hong Kong, a design center in Munich and a software development facility, including autonomous driving, in Silicon Valley.

Here Are Six Car Things We're Excited To See At CES Next Week

  Here Are Six Car Things We're Excited To See At CES Next Week I (Erik here) have never been to Las Vegas, which I’m told is both kind of exhilarating in addition to being extremely bleak. Strangely, I’ve been told the same thing about CES, which I’ll be in Vegas to cover this year with Ryan Felton. Here’s the car stuff we’re excited about! CES used to be called the Consumer Electronics Show but now is just called CES, with letters that don’t stand for anything. This is in part because the scope of the show has expanded so considerably since the first CES was held 50 years ago in New York City.

This wild- looking electric SUV concept has way more tech than anyone needs. It will also, eventually, have self-driving abilities — Byton says some autonomous driving features will be available in 2019 when the first cars hit the road .

Byton says its new car was designed from the ground up to be electric. That means no spaces for internal combustion engine components. At CES, Byton said the car will come in two flavors, one with a 71 kilowatt-hour battery pack good for 250 miles, and a second with a 95 kilowatt-hour battery pack that can go 325 miles.

Fast charging capability will give it 150 miles range in 20 minutes, although most charging will likely be from 220-volt Level 2 stations.

Self-driving is a major part of Byton's plans. The company emphasized that the new car will give passengers time that would otherwise be spent gripping the steering wheel in the daily traffic jam. At launch, Byton is planning Level 3 self-driving, which means the car can drive itself in many situations, but in some the human driver will need to take over.

From the exterior, the Byton concept is not flashy, it’ s almost downright boring, at least for a concept . In a video of it driving around a parking lot before the reveal, under cover, it even looks a bit like the Mutt Cutts van from Dumb & Dumber.

The car will be technically equipped for Level 4 self-driving, which means it can handle all driving tasks. That capability will require a change in the law to be allowed on public roads.

Byton eventually plans to equip the car with a 5G data connection, although at launch it will likely have to settle for 4G. Flat antennas integrated into the roof handle data, and do away with the need for the shark fin-style antenna seen on most cars today.

That data connection will power the car's virtual assistant, which will be Amazon Alexa. In a demo video at the launch, Byton showed how passengers could ask Alexa for a navigation destination and fill out a shopping list.

To take advantage of future self-driving capabilities, the car will have swivel-mounted front seats, which can turn around so all passengers can face each other.

Byton included a touchscreen in the middle of the steering wheel, letting the driver input destinations and interact with the car.

Byton designates the concept as an SUV, although it is a little lower at the roofline than typical SUVs. Because of the electric platform on which it's built, Byton announced it will also look at producing a sedan version, and an MPV, or multipurpose vehicle, a type found in regions other than the US.

Given Byton's apparent backing and production timeline, this concept looks more like a prototype, something we're likely to see come to market.
