LinkedIn +

Byton has announced details of its first production vehicle at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) that features superior interior space including a 48in-wide curved display and panoramic effect on the instrument panel.

The interior design of the Byton M-Byte embraces digital content and technology, enabling users to interact in different ways such as sensors for gesture, touch or voice control. The center of Mbyte’s interior design is the curved display, which is integrated into the dashboard and enables the passengers to enjoy multiple digital services. The clean design of the instrument panel and wraparound design elements integrate functions in a stylish yet discrete way and provide a feeling of protection and care for passengers.

“As one of the most important motor shows in the world, the IAA is a yardstick for us. We are on the verge of starting series production and the feedback from media, and especially from our future customers, is of great relevance to us. The unveiling of the Byton M-Byte also shows the effort paying off for the team, which has worked relentlessly on the car for over two years. Within that short amount of time, together we have taken a smart electric car from an initial idea on a white sheet of paper to series production readiness, while also building a coherent infrastructure with locations on three continents and an efficient Industry 4.0 production facility in China. We can rightfully be proud of this,” said Dr Daniel Kirchert, Byton’s chief executive officer and founder.

According to the company, a digital lounge feeling permeates the cabin through a flat floor and floating dashboard, which fosters relaxation and communication. The front seats rotate inward, facilitating conversation and offering better visibility of the display for rear passengers. An optional dedicated four-seat configuration with rear captain chairs offers extended second-row comfort and convenience. The interior colors and trim can be personalized to create a balance between digital content and natural materials.

The company is currently in the Attribute Prototype (AP) testing stage, with nearly 100 BYTON MByte AP vehicles built so far for various tests taking place around the globe.
