China e-car venture Future Mobility names brand Byton, eyes U.S., Europe

Chairman of the Board, CEO and co-founder of Future Mobility, Carsten Breitfeld, speaks in front of a screen showing an image of a new Byton car at a press conference in Shanghai, China September 7, 2017.

SHANGHAI  - Chinese electric-car venture Future Mobility Corp, co-founded by former BMW and Nissan Motor executives, has named its brand “Byton” that it plans to launch in the United States and Europe soon after starting sales at home in 2019.

Future Mobility, which recently raised $200 million from investors including China’s Suning and Fullshare Holdings, is looking to launch three cars by 2022. It already has a premium midsize crossover sport utility vehicle ready to go into the next “serious” phase of development. The company has said the SUV will hit China during the fourth quarter of 2019.

“The car is really developed for China, the U.S. and Europe. From the beginning we planned to launch it globally, setting up our sales subsidiaries in the U.S., China and Europe,” Daniel Kirchert, Future Mobility’s president, told Reuters at a media event in Shanghai on Thursday.

“After (January next year) we will start to engage with customers, take orders, and build up our sales organizations.”


Future Mobility is looking to unveil the production-ready version of the first car at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January next year.

Two key features of the car’s interior are a touch pad the size of Apple’s smaller iPad integrated into the steering wheel, and a massive, 20 cm-tall, 1.25-meter dashboard screen that stretches along the width of the car, the company said.

Chairman of the Board, CEO and co-founder of Future Mobility, Carsten Breitfeld, speaks in front of a screen showing an image of a new Byton car at a press conference in Shanghai, China September 7, 2017.

“Make everything which is possible on your smart phone also possible in the car,” Kirchert said, adding making it easier and fun to drive or be driven is the intent behind these devices, which people in the car can control by touch, gesture and voice.


The company plans to launch two more cars - a sedan and a 7-seater multi-purpose vehicle - by 2022.

For sales, Future Mobility plans to create a hybrid of the traditional car industry distribution method with a more experimental direct-sale approach using the company’s dedicated sales website, Kirchert and CEO Carsten Breitfeld said.

To cater to customers who want to see the car in person, the company also plans to set up physical showrooms operated by third-party independent sales agents who would work like traditional dealers but work only on a commission basis.

“Sales contact will always be between the customer and us directly,” Kirchert said.

Future Mobility also plans to provide maintenance and repair services through a network of independent agents, although the service process will be managed centrally by the company.
