    This Byton Concept previewed the new Chinese firm's "almost production-ready" SUV

    Wraparound display and wheel-integrated screen match original concept's while meeting global safety standards

    Byton has revealed the interior design of its upcoming M-Byte electric SUV ahead of the car’s global launch later this year.

    The near-final design, which was revealed at the CES technology show in Las Vegas, uses an evolved version of the wraparound digital dashboard and steering-wheel-mounted touchscreen seen in the original concept.

    The 48in curved ‘Shared Experience Display’ has been reinforced to resist shattering in the event of an accident. An 8.0in touchpad in the centre console will allow either front-row occupant to control the main screen, which is split into three sections for driver information, navigation and multimedia playback.

    It is also used to show images from three rear-facing cameras: two take the place of the wing mirrors, with a third mounted in the car’s rear. The brightness and background colour of the display adjusts automatically to suit lighting conditions. Two further screens are fitted to the front seats for rear passengers.

    The 7.0in touchscreen in the steering wheel sits slightly upward from the centre to make room for an airbag. Selecting a gear is done through physical buttons on the wheel, rather than with a traditional gearstick or stalk. Other physical buttons will be used only when legally required, such as for activating hazard lights.

    Voice recognition will allow for hands-free controls, with Byton partnering with Amazon to integrate the Alexa voice assistant. Facial recognition is also promised as a feature, identifying the driver to load specific profiles.

    In what will be a first for any production car, the M-Byte will also feature inward-rotating front seats, for when the car is operating in autonomous mode. The company plans to support level three autonomous driving at launch.

    Byton also revealed more details about the car’s powertrain. The M-Byte’s power will be stored in modular lithium ion batteries that form part of the vehicle chassis, with 71kWh and 95kWh capacities promised. Byton says the car will have a range of 248 miles, increasing to 323 miles with the upgraded battery pack.

    The model will be available in two configurations, including a twin-motor four-wheel drive system with 469bhp. A saloon, which was previewed as a concept last June, and MPV are due to follow and use the same platform.

    Initial prototypes of the SUV were completed at Byton’s factory in Nanjing, China, with a small batch subsequently built for crash tests and development prototyping. These prototypes have taken to closed test tracks and open public roads in China and the US, with production mooted in 2019. Byton has also announced that prices for the car will start at €37,500 in Europe (around £34,000).

    “The development of the Byton M-Byte is progressing extremely well, with everything on track," said company CEO Carsten Breitfeld. "In recent months, we have already successfully completed crash and stability tests with the initial set of prototypes. Now the first prototypes are being road tested. The team’s pace and motivation is incredible.”

    *Why Volkswagen, Hyundai and Byton are teaming up with a self-driving start-up firm*

    The company's new headquarters in Nanjing, China, opened earlier this year, and construction of the first prototypes has been completed at its new-build production facility.

    In addition to these, the company has also announced over $100 million of investment to help achieve its production goals from Chinese automotive giant FAW, with company co-founder Daniel Kirchert saying: "The Chinese automobile market offers excellent conditions for our company. The infrastructure developments, the market forecasts and the keen interest of the people in our products strengthen us enormously. Of course, our deep understanding of the Chinese market as a basis for our economic success also helps us.”

    Byton revealed the near-production-ready version of its debut model at its European launch as part of Milan Design Week, last year.

    The Concept, shown at the event in Milan, was described as being “85% there” by company boss Carsten Breitfeld, and builds on the version that was revealed at CES earlier this year. The firm says the focus of the machine is on allowing drivers to ‘enhance’ the time they spend in the car, rather than on-road performance.

    *Insight: why demand from China is spurring growth of electric car sales *

    The Concept is 4850mm long, 1940mm wide and 1650mm high, and runs on 22in wheels. At the front of the car, slim LED headlights top what Byton refers to as a ‘smart surface’.

    In place of door handles, the Concept features facial recognition cameras that check biometric data and will unlock the door to authorised users only.

    Minor modifications were needed to meet legal requirements, although Breitfeld described the touchscreen-dominated interior as being “series production ready”.

    The all-electric car is due to go on sale in China late next year, before arriving in Europe and the US in 2020 as the firm's first model.

    The SUV will feature a high level of driver assistance systems, along with features such as biometric recognition and a large infotainment display that works in conjunction with a ‘Byton Life’ cloud-sharing platform.

    Byton's SUV will come with driverless car technology provided by industry expert Aurora. Aurora is headed by Google's former autonomous driving boss, Chris Urmson, and several pioneers of the autonomous car industry. Its technology enables level four autonomy, meaning it will be able to drive itself without any human input.

    Byton said its SUV will feature driver assistance systems based around Aurora's suite of hardware, including cameras, ultrasonic sensors, radar and laser scanners. It has been designed so that components can be upgraded as technology develops. The vehicle architecture is designed for 5G mobile data connection, with speeds of up to 10GB per second.

    The new China-based company has development offices in the US and Germany, and its senior management team includes several experienced car industry executives.

    The firm is headed by Carsten Breitfeld, who joined from BMW’s i division along with designer Benoit Jacob. The firm has also made other high-profile appointments, including new head of vehicle engineering David Twohig, who has moved across from Alpine. The firm’s marketing chief, Henrik Wenders, has also joined Byton from BMW’s i division.

    While the addition of Twohig, whose new A110 has won much praise for its handling dynamics, suggests the importance of ensuring driving performance, Byton says the main focus of the brand will be on "the coming era of truly shared, smart mobility and autonomous driving".

    As with other new start-ups, such as the Geely-owned Lynk&Co, Byton will forego traditional dealerships in favour of a focus on online and a series of ‘brand stores’ that will be set up with partners.

    Byton showcased the concept for its brand stores at the event in Milan and says they will offer "added benefits" to traditional dealerships by allowing customers to "immerse themselves in a range of topics where Byton is at home", including digital products and services. The first brand store will open in Shanghai at the end of this year.

    The car industry has met targets to build cleaner diesels, but the government must act to get people into them

    This time last year I wrote about diesel still being the right choice of fuel for some drivers. A reader got hold of my phone number and, after a heated debate, accused me of playing an active role in the deaths of my children (who had been pictured in a report about a long-term test car, a diesel-powered Skoda Kodiaq).

    It was, I must admit, quite an emotive finale (yes, I bade him farewell pretty soon afterwards) to a conversation that had, up to that point, been notable for both of us quoting ‘facts’ at one another that we each passionately believed in.

    Read more: The 2018 car market winners and losers in detail

    My view boiled back to the fact that the very latest diesels - independently tested by What Car? as part of its True MPG real-world efficiency analysis - were producing NOx and particulate figures in line, and sometimes better, than petrol engines that had been put on sale just 18 months earlier. 

    I was aware that my point of view mirrored that of the car industry, something that always worries me, as I don’t want to be a stooge who just parrots one side of an argument, but - to stress again - it was backed by the results of our own testing. 

    His argument, however, was based on the pronouncements on a multitude of academics and doctors, all damning diesel. It takes a pretty special kind of arrogance for a journalist to deny experts in their field, but I still believed that none of the evidence being presented was applicable to the latest diesels that were only just coming to the market. 

    But what did I know, especially when this time last year there was a mountain of rhetoric to support his stance, much of it pushed out by various government departments (but principally Michael Gove as Environment Secretary) and all of which had built up to a point that ‘dirty diesels’ (regardless of age and emissions-reducing capabilities) had become a staple of the front pages for a period?

    Now, 12 months on, is it time to reassess the so-called facts? I think so, chiefly because the idea that modern diesels are part of the solution rather than problem is gathering pace, the arguments now backed by the results of the new, tougher-than-ever WLTP test regime that has been rolled out across Europe and which - even attackers of ‘old’ diesels are starting to admit - are proving the significant gains that have been made.

    Inevitably, pro-diesel rhetoric in government has been less widely reported than the more emotive counter-arguments, but look closely (most notably to Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) and the message is clear: modern diesels can be appropriate purchases. This stance is further backed by rulings making it clear that new diesels are clean enough to avoid city centre bans and more, and have also been echoed by current transport secretary Chris Grayling.

    Job done, then?  Today’s official figures, revealing that diesel registrations have fallen for 22 consecutive months, suggest otherwise. Whether you consider the facts or the rhetoric to have moved, the car-buying public certainly don’t seem to have got the message. 

    To a large degree, who can blame them? Regardless of the fact that we live in a time when noise seems to be valued over facts, the government’s own position remains remains muddled, from the bizarre decision to push the latest (cleanest) diesels up a VED tax band, disincentivising their purchase, to the decision to remove grants for buying a plug-in hybrid and reduce them for buying an electric car (both of which almost everyone agrees are part of the long-term solution), which has contributed to the UK’s uptake of such cars being around half that of the European average.

    Clarity is needed - and fast. Personal transport comes at an environmental cost, and the news that the average CO2 output of cars registered in the past year has risen at a time it is meant to be falling needs addressing, assuming the majority consensus is still that global warming is a thing. Balancing those needs with the desire - which is resisted by precisely nobody - to reduce other harmful emissions is critical.

    To my thinking, getting from where we are today to where we want to be in 2040 requires a glidepath, powered by improving technology. The fastest way to reduce emissions is to get newer vehicles on the road, and the knock-on benefit of that is that car makers will have more money to invest in newer, cleaner technology. The happy aside for government, meanwhile, is that a buoyant car industry is a hugely profitable one for its own coffers, especially as far as VAT on new car sales is concerned.

    Diesel - sold wisely, used well - can be part of that solution. But somebody needs to start shouting that from the rooftops.

    Near-30% decline in diesel demand hits 2018 sales; UK plug-in hybrid and electric growth behind EU average

    UK car registrations fell almost 7% year-on-year to 2.36m units in 2018, with a near 30% drop in diesel registrations accounting for the most marked decline in the market.

    Despite the drop - down from a 21st century peak of 2.69m in 2016 - the number of registrations is still in line with the UK’s 10-year sales average, and maintains the UK’s position as the second largest new car market in Europe, behind Germany.

    Read more: The 2018 car market winners and losers in detail

    December’s figures confirmed diesel registrations have now fallen for 21 consecutive months; by contrast, petrol registrations rose 8.7% for the year, while plug-in hybrid and electric registrations rose 21%.

    Underlining the impact of the diesel collapse, the 30% fall on registrations in 2018 compared to 2017 equates to 316,000 registrations - more than the drop in total 2018 registrations from the 2017 figure of 2.54m.

    Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) boss Mike Hawes also highlighted other factors that impacted the UK car market, including falling consumer confidence in big ticket purchases as a result of economic uncertainty, issues arising from the Brexit negotiations and the supply shortage in the wake of WLTP economy certification, which lowered some manufacturers’ registrations by almost 50% in September.

    “The belief is that consistent messaging and ongoing demonstration of the benefits of the latest diesels could unlock some of the market,” said Hawes. “The evidence is clear: some diesel owners are holding on to their cars rather than replacing them, and if we can bring the facts home to them, then we would hope they will replace them with confidence.”

    Large fleet purchases accounted for the greatest drop in registrations, falling 7.1%, followed by private retail purchases, down 6.4% and business purchases, down 5.6%. The most robust sector was the light commercial market, which fell just 1.3%.

    *Rising CO2 average raises concerns*

    Hawes also stressed the impact of the decline in diesel sales on CO2 output. Diesel engines typically produce significantly less CO2 than petrol engines, but more NOx and particulates.

    The average CO2 output of a car sold in 2018 rose 2.9g/km compared to 2017’s figure, to 124.5g/km. This figure was also impacted by the rise in sales of less efficient vehicles, notably SUVs, and the shift to WLTP measurement techniques, which added around 5% to a car’s official CO2 output.

    Under EU law car manufacturers must hit a 95g/km fleet average by 2021, based on European sales, or face fines of 95 euros per gram per kilometre per car.

    Hawes described the situation as “increasingly worrying”, with potential fines based on the current situation reaching hundreds of millions of euros for some car makers. To hit the target car makes must now achieve an average reduction of 8.6% a year - when the target was set of the average reduction needed was 4% a year.

    While UK sales are unlikely to count towards the EU averages post-Brexit, the British government has already indicated that it will either mirror the EU rules or impose tougher targets in the event of Brexit being completed by that date.

    *UK electric uptake lags behind Europe*

    That situation is further complicated by the lower rate of uptake of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles in the UK compared to other leading European nations. Despite the sharp rise in demand in 2018, total registrations for both accounted for 2.5% of the total market, with pure electric vehicles accounting for 0.7% of the total - around half the EU average.

    Last October the government announced it was dropping grants for plug-in hybrid purchases and reduced the allowance for electric cars and registrations have subsequently dropped dramatically, although the availability of plug-in hybrid vehicles has been severely impacted since WLTP was introduced in September.

    Hawes pointed to inconsistent messaging being at the root of a perfect storm of issues causing consumer confusion: “The best way to introduce newer technologies - be they lower emission ones, or ones relating to autonomy and safety and other steps forward - is to get people into newer vehicles.

    “I say that in full acceptance that the car industry has a vested interest, but we need to get some clear direction. The government has now acknowledged that the latest diesels on sale today are the right choice for many motorists, and said they won’t be banned from city centres because they clean enough - yet they are still penalised by a VED tax band. The government has laid out a glidepath to zero emissions sales only, yet it has removed or reduced the incentive that was driving people towards those vehicles.

    “Car buyers are quite reasonably confused and we all have a job to do in order to present a consistent, fact-based argument to persuade people of the right vehicles to buy for their needs.

    *2019 registrations set to fall again*

    The SMMT is predicting a further 2% fall in registrations in 2019, although Hawes cautioned that the figure was based on “known issues” and that it could swing dramatically.

    He highlighted a potential post-Brexit deal economic upswing as a potential positive, and a potential no-deal Brexit slump as “potentially huge”.

    However, he added that the retail market would eventually recover from any shocks, saying: “The market may fall, and this could be a very tough year, but the outlook is that it would eventually normalise; the rise in leasing should help insulate against a dramatic fall such as we saw in 2007 and 2008 with the last recession.”

    Hawes also reiterated the SMMT’s belief that a no-deal Brexit would deliver a hammer blow to the UK manufacturing industry: “Frictionless trade is what this industry relies on; we have 1100 trucks a day going straight to the manufacturing lines, and warehousing isn’t a long-term option. Tariffs would depress the market. It would certainly have an impact on the industry, including jobs. No deal would be catastrophic.”

    *Epigenomics AG Announces Positive Results from Microsimulation Model

    Berlin (Germany) and San Diego, CA (U.S.A.), January 7, 2019 *- Epigenomics AG (FSE: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY) today announced that a microsimulation model has been completed by external academic experts demonstrating positive results for the Epi proColon(R) blood test. The manuscript is being finalized and will be submitted for publication soon. Epigenomics will discuss the specific findings once the manuscript is published.

    Microsimulation models have been used to project the harms and benefits of various strategies for Colorectal Cancer Screening (CRC). These models are utilized by various screening guideline groups such as the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) and the American Cancer Society to aid in the development of screening guidelines. To date, none of the previously completed models used for guideline development have incorporated the methylated Septin 9 blood test (Epi proColon(R)) as one of the strategies. The model just completed incorporates the Epi proColon(R) test and also factors in the key variable of adherence to testing. Adherence to testing is a critical element for the improvement of screening rates, and blood based testing holds promise for the approximately 35% of eligible people not up to date for screening according to the guidelines.

    Incentive Pay Makes Top US CEOs and CFOs Best Paid in World, According to First-Ever Global 250 Compensation Survey HONG KONG, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CEOs and CFOs of the largest US global companies are paid more than counterparts around the world because they earn larger incentive compensation based on performance, according to the inaugural 2018 Global Top 250 Compensation Survey of CEOs and CFOs from FW Cook, Inc., FIT Remuneration Consultants LLP and Pretium Partners Asia Limited."Total pay levels are higher in the Americas than in Europe & Australia or Asia, although a disproportionate share of total pay (91% for the CEO and 86% for the CFO) is tied to annual bonus and long-term incentives," said David Cole, managing director of FW Cook, Inc.

    He added that total direct compensation for CEOs in the Americas is typically above the global "average" level when adjusting for company size while annual bonus levels are higher than in the other regions for the CEO but are in line with Europe and Australia for CFOs.

    According to John Lee of FIT, at the median, a significant portion of the total compensation package (69% for the CEO and 68% for the CFO in Europe & Australia) is tied to annual bonus and long-term incentives. This represents a smaller proportion than is the case in the Americas, with pay at median split almost evenly between base salary, annual bonus and long-term incentives in Europe & Australia.

    "The Americas put a premium on incentive compensation in line with shareholder expectations, and the higher risk has historically been a justification for higher target pay." said Lee. "In Europe & Australia, shareholder expectations over quantum has generally kept long-term incentives more modest."

    May Poon of Pretium said base salaries in Asia are often significantly below the global "average" level when adjusting for company size due to the state-owned nature of some companies.

    "Annual bonus levels are lower than in the other regions for both the CEO and CFO, as bonuses are regulated in China and some senior executives in family-run businesses are also major shareholders of the company," said Poon.

    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan’s largest and one of the world’s leading high-tech applied research institutions, demonstrated its innovative applications at CES 2019 Unveiled in Las Vegas on January 6, 2019, drawing the attention from international media such as Reuters TV, Voice of America, Tech Guide, and Indiantelevision.com. CES Unveiled is an official press event of CES that brings together key players in the tech industry and influential media from all over the world. This year, it hosts 1,500 global media and features the latest innovation showcase from over 220 tech companies.The tech innovations ITRI exhibited at the event revealed its advanced R&D capability and the determination to solve problems for industry and society. Among them are the two CES 2019 Innovation Award Honorees: the Hybrid Power Drone with High Payload and Duration and ITRI spinoff ELECLEAN’s disinfectant spray. Both have shown their excellence in engineering, aesthetic, and design qualities, user value, and positive impact to quality of life, putting themselves on par with global players such as iRobot and Honeywell—honorees alike in the Robotics and Drones and Home Appliances categories respectively. The other highlight is the Portable UVC LED Water Sterilizer System, a 2018 R&D 100 Award winner honored for its novel way to produce clean drinking water.

    Tech Guide Editor Stephen Fenech, one of Australia's most respected tech journalists, was impressed by the applications of the Hybrid Power Drone with High Payload and Duration in utility inspection, agriculture and emergency rescue. He believes the technology can be very useful for emergency supply delivery or air drops. 

    Anil Wanvari from Indisntelevision.com, India's most widely read online media, advertising, marketing and satellite television resource, commented that the Portable UVC LED Water Sterilizer System would be perfect for use in India, where access to clean drinking water is limited. He stressed that the mobility and solar battery design of the sterilizer can satisfy the market demand.   

    *ITRI’s Highlights at CES 2019*

    *Hybrid Power Drone with High Payload and Duration*
    ITRI’s Hybrid Power Drone with High Payload and Duration is an octocopter that can hover up to 45 minutes at 30 kg payload, which is over three times the endurance of a drone powered solely by lithium battery. This technology solves the problem of insufficient duration and payload for multi-rotor drones and can be applied to a variety of commercial uses. The drone can even carry granular fertilizers, proving its capabilities as an advanced agricultural drone for plant protection. With highly efficient electric propulsion and fault-tolerant autopilot, it can perform robust delivery service and long range infrastructure inspection as well.

    *ELECLEAN Disinfectant Spray*
    ITRI’s spinoff ELECLEAN developed a portable device that uses water to produce a disinfectant to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses such as H1N1 Virus and Enterovirus. It uses the world’s first nano-catalysis electrochemical technology to convert water molecules into reactive oxygen species (ROS) in 15 minutes. Without adding chemicals, the device alleviates the need for preservatives, stabilizers, or scents that are common in conventional disinfectants, and can be applied for multiple purposes including disinfecting surfaces, cleaning hands, or sanitizing pets. 

    *Portable UVC LED Water Sterilizer System*
    ITRI’s Portable UVC LED Water Sterilizer System is developed to ensure clean drinking water supply and avoid the risks caused by contaminated water. It can provide immediate water sterilization by killing 99.9% of bacteria such as E.coli in the water. The system uses UV LED as the light source and reduces the module volume by 1/3, compared to a mercury lamp sterilizer. The system features small size, low energy consumption, and a longer lifespan.

    According to analysts at Nordea Markets, tightening financial conditions seen since early November are putting pressure on the US economy, with wider credit spreads and weaker equities being the main culprits, which now point to below 50 ISM Manufacturing readings three to four months from now.

    *Key Quotes*

    “The ISM could continue to drop – *and drop swiftly according to our most bearish models.* The most forward-looking component of the ISM index, New Orders, dropped to 51.1 from 62.1 in November. It is admittedly a little hard to see any trough forthcoming right now. The ISM Manufacturing Index has not dropped >5 index points outside of recessions since January 1984.”

    “In Europe, this week’s weak Swedish Manufacturing PMI now also suggests that the Euro-area PMI will drop below 50 within three to four months from now. It is probably still a bigger headache for the ECB to tackle weakening growth momentum than it is for the Fed.”

    “If we are right that slowing central bank asset purchases (and soon aggregate central bank balance sheet contractions) are the principal reasons behind the recent weakening sentiment for risky assets, *then concessions from the Fed, ECB or Bank of Japan are probably needed to really reverse the current market course.”* Reported by FXstreet.com 2 hours ago.
