A Chinese startup named Future Mobility (FMC) has just released a teaser of the car it intends on revealing at January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The vehicle comes from FMC’s Byton car brand and will reportedly be a medium-sized SUV. Power will come from an all-electric setup offering about 500 km (310 miles) of range. Additionally, the Byton SUV will come equipped with all the required hardware for Level 5 autonomous driving.
A teaser of the vehicle’s front shows that it will have thin LED headlights as well as intriguing daytime running lights which resemble illuminated cracks across the SUV’s fascia. We can also see that the Byton badge will be illuminated.
Inside, the Byton will be dominated by a single, curved touchscreen display stretching the width of the dashboard. Also found within will be a steering wheel that supports a removable tablet. FMC boss Daniel Kirchert says the Byton’s interior space will rival the Mercedes-Benz S-Class while its exterior dimensions will be similar to the Audi Q5.
FMC intends on introducing the Byton SUV in 2019 and following it up with a sedan in 2021 and a people mover in 2022. Construction will be handled by a location in Nanjing, China.
