The 2019 Byton Concept EV Shows Startups Are Alive And Well

The automobile industry has had a well established list of manufacturers for quite some time now. Sure, some car makes have come and gone but the largest ones have remained consistent for quite some time. Now, the automobile startup Byton will show off their most recent concept vehicle at an upcoming trade show in Las Vegas. The 2019 Byton Concept EV includes but is not limited to the following features:

  • Faster Charging Time
  • Larger Infotainment System
  • Autonomous Driving Capabilities

Faster Charging Time

One of the largest complaints about electric vehicles is how long they take to charge. Byton intends to combat this notion with a vehicle which can charge up to 76 miles of range in just 10 minutes. The total range of the vehicle is estimated to be around 217 miles.

Larger Infotainment System

Tesla was one of the first automakers to really supersize the on board screen for drivers to use as a GPS or simply to control the radio. Now, Byton is taking this concept to new heights with an absolutely giant 49×10 inch screen that spans almost the entire width of the vehicle. The idea is to provide split screens for both the driver and the passenger.

Autonomous Driving Capabilities

Completely self driving vehicles are still quite a ways off. In the mean time however, Byton plans to install software that over time can be updated to be fully autonomous. This would allow drivers to be completely hands off with their personal travel experience. Only time will tell if Byton is a serious automobile contender or just another startup doomed for the graveyard.
