Can you actually see previous that factor?

We’ve had fairly just a few posts right here on BYTON since their world introduction at CES 2018. By far, probably the most controversial characteristic in BYTON’s autos is the large 48″ lengthy show display that stretches throughout the whole dashboard.

In almost each put up, we get feedback on how distracting the show display will probably be, in addition to issues of whether or not or not it obstructs the driving force’s view. We’ve pushed within the M-Byte 5 – 6 occasions now, and have conveyed in earlier posts that the display auto-dims at evening, and that for the reason that content material is static whereas driving, it doesn’t seem to current a distraction subject.

As soon as we’re capable of take the M-Byte for a correct check drive later this 12 months, we’ll be capable to remark definitively on that.  Till then, we perceive why people who haven’t been within the automobile could be involved.

You possibly can truly see the highest of the hood above the show display. Subsequently, the show doesn’t impede the driving force’s view.

BYTON has assured us that they’ve spent quite a lot of time ensuring the show won’t current a distraction drawback, and that whereas the automobile is in movement it is going to show static content material that almost all automobiles at this time already show. For example, the entire content material on the left 1/three of the display, which is in entrance of the driving force, (in most markets) will probably be what is often seen by the driving force, like pace, vary, navigation data, state of cost, and so forth.

Whereas we are able to’t show that right here at this time, we are able to show that the display doesn’t bodily current a line-of-sight subject, as some have claimed it could. We perceive why some might imagine that, since many of the footage of the dashboard are taken from a decrease place than the driving force’s line-of-sight, giving the allusion that the view is severely obstructed. We spoke to BYTON’s VP of Design, Benoit Jacob at CES, and he informed us that they designed the show so it wouldn’t impede any a part of the driving force’s view, and that the line-of-sight angle truly exceeds what’s required by rules.

So, check out the images we took earlier this week on the BYTON sales space at CES, and you’ll decide for your self.

This image is taken about 6 ft from the entrance of the automobile and at about hood stage.

This image was taken from about 12″ above floor stage. Even at this low level, the driving force can see the digicam.

This image was taken about eight ft from the entrance of the automobile and at about 5′ off the bottom, barely decrease than the roofline.
