Byton’s electric SUV concept takes things to the next level with its exceptionally futuristic cabin, astounding multitude of connectivity options and techies on board.
Now don’t expect this crowd-pleaser to be some flashy radical-looking machine to have such a huge fan following. This SUV is actually something that thoroughly misses out on the “straight out of the science fiction” glam of the other modern day concepts.
Many techie wonders are safely encapsulated in the cabin of this glorious SUV. Hop inside and you will find yourself sitting face-to-face with a prodigious 49-inch screen that stretches from pillar to pillar. Incorporated into it is a simple and user-friendly interface that facilitates the user to control and configure the car to their taste. Several modern-day tech goodies like voice activation, facial recognition, and gesture-based control spring to your aid in this vehicle.
Also worth a mention are the front seats that rotate, the 8-inch tablet included on the steering wheel, and the headrest mounted entertainment screens for the rear occupants that uses a gesture-based control system. The facial recognition used in this electric vehicle features ‘Byton life – a smart and open digital cloud platform that seamlessly connects all your applications, data and devices.” The autonomous driving technology pulls this all together for an EV that is going to give Tesla a run for its money.
