Byton Teases All-Electric Sedan Concept

Recently-established Chinese automaker Byton has teased its upcoming sedan concept vehicle, set to premiere at CES Asia in Shanghai this June.

Two separate images of the concept have been released, and while neither provides many details, they do reveal that the car’s design will be reminiscent of the Byton SUV unveiled last year. With this in mind, we can see small front and rear overhangs, the outline of a large cabin, a sleek roof and a pair of sensors that pop out of the roof.

Beneath the skin, the Byton sedan will share its platform with the SUV and be followed up by a seven-seat MPV. The sedan should launch in China in 2021, roughly two years after the SUV hits the market in Byton’s home country. The SUV will land in Europe and the United States in 2020, so it’s reasonable to assume that the sedan will hit the shores of the Old Continent in 2022.

Byton has ambitious product plans

Speaking to Autocar about this vehicle, Byton design chief Benoit Jacob said the company envisioned three models from the outset.

“We worked on the family from the beginning and designed it so we can avoid re-engineering things every single time from an architecture and platform point of view. That means we can have a price point that is really attractive.”

The sedan is expected to feature an interior very similar to the SUV’s. Consequently, there will be a large central touchscreen and a tablet built into the steering wheel. A suite of connectivity features will ensure the sedan offers all the comforts modern consumers expect.

Like the SUV and MPV, the Byton sedan will be built at a plant in Nanjing, China.
