They may spruce it up for the production model. This one was a prototype since they couldn't get a production model on the floor. At least I hope they spruce it up.

The photos of the vehicle on their website show a much nicer interior...

I hope they took those pictures with the seats in their full forward position. Otherwise, only the anorexic could get their legs under the dash!

The prototype looks almost like they took a Geo Metro instrument panel and stuck it in there. The picture from the website looks far more finished.

Well there were alternate images that seem to show more legroom, such as this:



I think the thing that would bother me the most, is that the instrument panel is in the middle of the dash. That would take some getting used to.

Once upon a time, it was common to find the instrument cluster in the middle of the dash--next time you come across a Model A Ford, look inside, you'll see what I mean.

My favorite, however, is a 1919 Studebaker on eBay right now...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Stude...item1c0d88f6aa

Look at the dashboard...in front of the driver you have the ignition and light switch. A little way over is the ammeter. To the right of center is the oil pressure gauge. Then, waaaaaaaay over in front of the passenger, is the speedometer. (No, officer, I had no idea how fast I was going...speedometer's not in my line of vision...)
