Byton targets mass production

Byton CEO and co-founder Carsten Breitfeld has stated the company has the ambitious goal of changing the world of mobility.

Some six month after the world premiere of the Byton Concept at the world’s largest trade fair for consumer electronics, CES in Las Vegas, Carsten said, ‘We have set the ambitious goal of changing the world of mobility in much the same way that the iPhone has changed the world of communication.

‘It makes us proud that this ambitious goal is obviously not only supported by our investors and employees, but also by global media, industry experts and technology fans. The positive feedback is a clear sign for us that not only our concept, but also the timing is just right.’

The Byton team is now preparing the next steps for series production in Nanjing, China – a location the company claims ‘offers excellent conditions’ with infrastructure developments, market forecasts and a keen interest in its products.

In 2019, the first Byton Premium SUVs are to be rolled off the production line in China and sold in the country of production. By 2020, the first Bytons will also be available in the US and Europe. This is followed by a sports sedan in the premium format, which, like the first model, is electrically powered.
