LAS VEGAS -- China-based start-up automaker Byton has unveiled its electric concept car at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The car boasts sleek exterior design as well as a wide dashboard screen that allows all passengers to share the displayed content.

The vehicle's 1.25-meter edge-to-edge dashboard display generated plenty of interest at the company's booth on Tuesday. Designed for sharing of content on the screens, it can also connect apps, data and devices of the driver and passengers. The autonomous car, built at the company's headquarters in Nanjing, is expected to take to the streets next year in China and in 2020 in the U.S. and Europe, with a starting price at $45,000.
