The new M-Byte electric SUV from Chinese start-up Byton will feature a radical, hi-tech interior, and should make its European debut in 2020.
Earlier this year, the 49-inch display set to feature in the M-Byte SUV was been revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. First seen on the Concept model at last year’s show, the screen is officially called a ‘Shared Experience Display’ (SED) and is expected to allow gesture and voice control. Byton claims it’s the world’s largest in-car display for a production model.
Byton demonstrated a system at last year’s CES that allowed drivers to control an on-screen cursor using hand motions, with commands executed by snapping fingers. Integration of Amazon Alexa was also mooted.
The company also says the position of the display has been carefully developed and tested to not affect driver line-of-sight and can automatically adjust brightness according to changes in ambient lighting to avoid further distraction. In addition, Byton promises the SED will meet safety and crash standards in all target markets.
