    It looks fantastic in photos. Figures are also impressive environmentalists. As for handling, hope it won’t be affected.

    Nice pics!!

    Horatiu, a few Q’s for you since you get to see it up close:
    – does it have a trunk?
    – how do the windows open?
    – the kidney grilles have a segmented appearance, is there a reason for that?
    – the windshield design looks like it’s designed to let the kidney inlet air escape. Is there a radiator there?

      Hey man. The segmented appearance are because of the Active Aerodynamics. When the car is using the ICE (internal combustion engine) the kidney grilles open to allow air into the intakes. When it runs in electric mode the grilles close and light up in blue.

        Don’t “Hey, man” me, man! (jk :>)

        I was aware they were doing that, but I figured the vents were louvered all together, like venetian blinds. I can’t figure out how they operate or move from the pics.

        So, if the engine is in the rear, why is there an intake in the front? Do the radiator hoses run to the front of the car?

        Horatiu? :)

          I don’t have the answer to that question Doug, but it has been noted and I will try to find out
