Byton is the newest electric car company, has sparked some great deal of attention at the CES 2018. The Chinese company unveiled its all tech-centric electric SUV concept at the Las Vegas Convention. Byton is now trying tapping some outside experts to bring self-driving car technology into their future vehicles.
The concept SUV is a harbinger of what’s to come from Byton’s first production car, which will come in 2019, and includes plans to sell to the US customers. But Byton (neé Future Mobility Corporation) says the version revealed on stage at the CES Convention represents about 85 percent of the production SUV, which the company plans to follow with a sedan and compact using the same vehicle architecture.
Byton announced Monday that it has partnered with self-driving vehicle technology startup Aurora. The buzzy startup, led some of the best minds in self-driving cars, will work on bringing Level 4 autonomous vehicle capabilities into Byton vehicles. The two companies will conduct a pilot deployment of Aurora’s L4 autonomous driving systems on Byton vehicles in the “next two years.”
