    Have to admit exterior design is nicer looking than most of these road hogging lumps. Range and charge time look pretty acceptable too. Worrying thing for me here is that bloody screen , nothing resembling a car dash and if anything could distract a drivers attention from the road this is definitely it. Dangerous I think.

    I think EV manufacturers need to stop making an Electric Car "futuristic" filled to the nonce with gadgets and gizmos and really just make a car that's a electric. There are a few about, I think Tesla is the only one striking a middle ground between future crazy and grounded reality.

    that it is capable of going from 0-60mph in about five seconds
    I still fail to see how this is in any way a good thing... Just means people will take more risks pulling out from junctions and off the lights.

    Exactly - This proves cars are too dangerous to be trusted to a human and everything must be computer-controlled from now on...!

    MAJOR problem of such massive dashboard screen is the blinding light while driving at night

    Most cars with large-ish LCD screens will switch to a much darker colour scheme when they detect the outside lighting conditions have gotten dark. The far bigger problem is that touch-screens aren't easy to use without taking your eyes off the road. If you have a physical button for something, muscle memory will teach you where it is and what it feels like so you can operate it without looking once you're familiar with it. A touch screen is far harder to use, especially if the road is a little (or more) bumpy.

    it will have level 3 self-driving capabilities at launch (aims for level 4 later in development)
    I'm going to start a rocket company. I've got some fireworks, and aim to compete with spaceX later in development

    The price is ok for an EV but why can't a manufacturer strip out all the fancy tech and give us poor folk an EV ? I certainly don't need face recognition, level 3,4 or anything self drive, 49" touch screen or any other screen for that matter.

    Nice looking car. I don't mind the size of the screen so much, but it's placement so high up appears as if it will obstruct the view out the front of the car. Although I suppose because of that the size is an issue.

    Re: Byton electric SUV includes a 49-inch dashboard touch screen

    The screen would be great if the car was 100% driverless so you could just kick back and go online or watch a movie etc. But whilst manually driving, touch screen anything is a pain to use and distracting as said above, that's why most of the cars I have seen double up the functions with physical buttons on the steering wheel.

    Perhaps they are creating a darwinian test?

    Just think of how great Pokemon Go is going to be with a screen that big while you're driving around....or GTA augmented reality
