Chinese EV startup Byton returned to the Consumer Electronics Show this year with its electric SUV, the M-Byte. The Verge's Sean O'Kane got a chance to drive the M-Byte and see what it's like to be behind the wheel of a car with a massive 48-inch dashboard display.

What about a 360 degree view with that screen? You'd think they'd pack cameras around that car for just that with that big screen

Sad that they closed. Hopefully someone will buy them off or fund them. Want an MPV (8 seater 1.2m interior height) and they were going to make one (July 2020)

This is just a beginning. Cars in the future wont have windows, nor the windscreen, cuz there will be screens all around us, with all realities. Who wants to drive, in 2020 anyway with Tesla's offering partial autonomy. Even elon is saying, people do value the full self driving experience once they feel the car doing their job as smooth or even smoother than themselves. This car just gives us a glimpse into the future.

seems strange to go for an ultrawide display anyway. 32:9 is great for productivity but even if you had full self-driving I feel like that aspect ratio wouldn't be ideal for most consumption done in a car.

Cars with screen on the entire dashboard should not be produced as it would invariably distract the driver and there is high chances of collision or accident occurring.

You could cover the entire car windshield with a transparent display. When the car is driving, you turn the display off and it just becomes transparent like glass. When the car is parked, you turn the display on and the entire windshield can become a giant 55 inch display. Then it is like a built in drive in movie theater.

Not having physical buttons that you can reach without looking, for commonly used features, is bad user experience. In fact, it's dangerous.

I must say, the thing that most intrigued me about the car is the display on the steering wheel... I'm trying to envision in my head how one would engineer a fixed display that rests *in front of* a rotating wheel on a fixed column. How does that work?!
