Byton has announced a series of updates which edge its inaugural model, an electric SUV, closer to production.
The company"s headquarters in Nanjing, China, will be opened this week, while construction work is nearing completion on its production facility. The plant has already produced prototype vehicles ahead of the full launch of the Jaguar I-Pace rival.
In addition to these, the company has also announced a three-figure-million-dollar investment to help achieve its production goals from Chinese automotive giant FAW, with company co-founder Daniel Kirchert saying: "The Chinese automobile market offers excellent conditions for our company. The infrastructure developments, the market forecasts and the keen interest of the people in our products strengthen us enormously. Of course, our deep understanding of the Chinese market as a basis for our economic success also helps us.”
Byton revealed the near production-ready version of its first model, a high-tech, premium electric SUV, at its European launch as part of Milan Design Week, last year.
