These two vehicles will be part of a three-car lineup relying on "Byte" names.

All three will be built on a single shared platform, which should help keep costs low.

If you're wondering what all those weird attachments are, it's part of the car's autonomous driving system.

Byton announced that it's partnering with Aurora, a startup dedicated to creating a SAE Level 4 self-driving platform.

When the vehicle isn't operating autonomously, certain components like the cameras under the side mirrors are capable of retracting into the body.

What's perhaps most interesting is that Byton doesn't really refer to its concepts as cars, but rather as smart devices.
