It's a bold claim, but Byton President Daniel Kirchert says the vehicle will be the "first-ever affordable premium EV that fulfills the requirements as the first car in every household." The midsize SUV will start at around $45,000.

Up front, the Byton concept features lights that can change depending on different driving scenarios and the messages it wants to communicate to others on the road. Face recognition cameras on the B-pillars can unlock the doors for drivers or passengers. Instead of traditional side mirrors, the vehicle has discreet side-view cameras to help drivers see their outside surroundings.

Step in the cabin, and the concept reveals a living area with a wooden floor, leather upholstery, and rotating seats. A large screen almost 50 inches wide sits on the dashboard, complementing a smaller driver tablet behind the steering wheel and two screens in the rear seats. To control functions like navigation, users can use hand gestures from any position in the car.

The Byton concept is compatible with up-and-coming 5G communications technology. It has also incorporated Amazon Alexa in its voice control system.

When it goes into production, the SUV will feature Level 3 autonomous capabilities, in which it's expected the human driver will intervene if needed. By 2020, Byton will issue an over-the-air update so its vehicles can reach Level 4, meaning the cars can drive on their own under specific conditions, as defined by the SAE.
