Byton is an ambitious automotive startup that's focusing on both electric vehicles and autonomous-driving technology. However, we don't know if or when its first model—the M-Byte SUV—will actually go on sale. A concept sedan called K-Byte is also said to be in development, but no production date has been set. Byton's interior designs are centered around a giant curved display on the dashboard and lounge-like seating that makes it easier to carry on conversations with other passengers while on the move.
