BYTON drivers will use Electrify America’s network of DC fast chargers for the free service.

The BYTON M-Byte starts at $45,000. The deal will now be sweetened with unlimited 30-minute access to Electrify America’s DC chargers – as well as unlimited 60-minute charging sessions at all of the company’s public Level 2 chargers.

By the time BYTON launches in late 2021, there are expected to be 3,500 150kW+ chargers at more than 800 Electrify America locations across the U.S. projected by the end of 2021.

“This Electrify America partnership aligns with our global strategy, in a prelude to other major announcements to come,” noted Dr. Andreas Schaaf BYTON Chief Customer Officer. “We continue to lay a solid foundation for a successful North American launch of the BYTON M-Byte committing to the US and its customers.”

“In talking with our future customers, it’s clear that easy access to public charging infrastructure paves the way for a seamless EV ownership experience,” says Managing Director, BYTON Americas, Jose Guerrero. “Unlimited charging privileges on Electrify America’s charging network for two years exemplifies BYTON’s commitment to customer-centricity.”

Earlier this week, BYTON announced that it received both a dealer and a distributor license from the state of California. This move officially established BYTON as a retail entity in the United States.
