Byton M-Byte prototypes undergo Cold Environment Testing
Byton has completed its Cold Environment Test of its M-Byte prototypes in Inner Mongolia in northern China.
The tests are an integral part of the company’s development process to achieve the highest safety and quality standards. During cold-weather testing, engineers drove several thousands of miles on open roads and specially prepared test tracks at temperatures of down to -30°C.
This phase focused on batteries, battery management and drive electronics.
Meanwhile, at Byton’s headquarters in Nanjing, China, work is proceeding at full speed to complete the intelligent production facilities, which are built around cutting-edge Industry 4.0 standards. Pre-series production of M-Byte is scheduled to start in summer 2019.
The first production cars will be delivered at the end of 2019 in China, in the second half of 2020 in the USA and at the end of 2020 in Europe.
