Byton Resumes Production Of M-Byte Electric SUV

Byton also finalized the home charging installation deal for the U.S. market with Qmerit.

Byton’s CEO Daniel Kirchert revealed this week several images showing that the company is busy making first M-Byte all-electric SUVs.

The pre-production in Nanjing actually started in October 2019, but then was interrupted by COVID-19 in early 2020.

We are not sure whether those are still pre-production cars or already some demo units, but the schedule is to start customer deliveries in China in mid-2020.

Market launch in Europe and in the U.S. is scheduled for 2021. In the U.S., Byton already secured a deal with Electrify America to provide a two-year unlimited fast charging for new customers.

The latest step on the road to the U.S. market is a home charging installation agreement with Qmerit, which was selected as a nationwide provider of turnkey residential EV charger installations (Level 2 AC).

Qmerit is called “the “Uber” for Contractors” and is backed by Schneider Electric. Other Qmerit’s automotive partners are BMW and Jaguar.
