Byton is putting a tech spin on its vehicle.

Chinese startup Byton has unveiled what it claims is the world's first Smart Intuitive Vehicle (SIV) in the form of an electric SUV concept at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The vehicle even deeply integrated voice assistant tech by way of Amazon's Alexa, which looks to have gotten a serious upgrade from the standard set of functions you might find in an Echo. Byton is also says its vehicle will the first to feature a touchscreen embedded inside the steering wheel. It comes fully loaded with gadgets of many concept cars with promising controls with voice, touch or gesture, and biometric technology such as facial recognition cameras.

However, until now, the most we've seen of Byton's vehicles have been shadowy press photos. According to BYTON, when the SUV arrives, it will be offered in two versions. Although the SUV will have only Level 3 autonomy when it hits the streets at the end of next year, it's created to be upgraded to Level 4 (nearly fully autonomous) in 2020. BYTON's core management team is made up of the world's top experts from China, Europe and the USA, all of whom have held senior management positions in such innovative companies as BMW, Tesla, Google and Apple.

Byton will drive 248.5 miles for the rear-wheel drive vehicle, and up to 323 miles in the four-wheel drive on a single charge. However, based on Tesla's recently difficulty getting its Model 3 production numbers up to speed, and the continued issues surrounding Faraday Future, it's hard to be anything but sceptical about Byton's prospects - especially with a timeline that has cars being sold by the end 2019 out of a factory that hasn't been built yet. They plan to release an autonomous vehicle by 2020. That would allow the SUV to operate without driver oversight in some conditions. Their expertise covers automotive design, automotive engineering and manufacturing, electric powertrain, intelligent connectivity, autonomous driving, user interface and supply chain management among other industry sectors, the sum of which represents BYTON's strengths in manufacturing premium automobiles that are equipped with high quality internet technologies. It also includes the first rotating front seats on a production vehicle, meant to turn the auto into a "digital lounge" said Breitfeld. The company plans to produce a sedan and a multi-purpose vehicle, or small family vehicle, on the platform as well.
