Highly autonomous vehicles and fully autonomous vehicles are slated to represent a sea change in the automotive industry as a whole, and Chinese car company Byton is looking to dictate the design terms with its newly introduced Byton K-Byte sedan concept. The vehicle is expected to reach the Chinese market this year and the US market by 2020, showing the urgency for forward-thinking design when it comes to something as unprecedented as self-driving vehicles.
Autonomous vehicles will introduce new technical features that have never before existed in the automotive world, including things like lidar sensors. This means that autonomous vehicles will require a new design vernacular, and the Byton K-Byte represents Byton's drive to be at the forefront of those design decisions for all of the automakers in the burgeoning industry.
