At the recent Consumer Electronics Show, Byton unveiled its M-Byte that the company says has production-ready interiors. The most remarkable feature seen in the model is its 48.0 inch curved display touchscreen. It is the biggest such touchscreen and really huge in size when compared to the conventional 12.0-inch touchscreens that most models have.
According to Byton, the width of this touchscreen is equivalent to the width covered by seven iPads when they are arranged side by side, or the same as 24 smartphone screens. The brightness of the display automatically adjusts to the conditions, and there is also an automatic night mode.
Called the ‘Shared Experience Display’, the touchscreen can be controlled either through a 7.0-inch touchscreen placed in the center of the steering wheel, or through an 8.0-inch portrait mode touchscreen which is positioned along the center console.
Each of these screens come with their own interface for entertainment, phone connectivity, navigation, climate control and cloud services. It is also possible to blank these screens out and use any one of them as a remote touchpad controller for the 48.0-inch display.
The main screen not only shows the speed, navigation, and other infotainment functions, but can also be used for video chats and games, hopefully not by those who are driving.
The system also has the capability to also recognize gestures which are performed near the center of the dashboard, and responds to voice commands.
The new version of the interiors of the M-Byte comes with better materials and a more stylish dashboard design, with the dashboard now wrapping around to fit in better with the door panels.
Byton is planning to fully launch the M-Byte in June 2019. The model is slated to be available at the retail level in China from the end of 2019, and then in North America and Europe from some time in 2020.
