    I suspect they probably will not let the public inside the car since it is not a production vehicle.

    I am sorry you are so disappointed in the Prime. I could tell how much you were looking forward to its introduction.

    Hmm, if the lights are all LED, will snow/ice prove to be a problem with the headlights for people who live in northern climates? I recall my 2014 Prius five trim had a hidden nozzle that sprayed washer fluid on the headlights since they were LED and probably wouldn't generate enough waste heat to melt snow/ice off.

    I don't see anything like that on the Prime. Or are the headlights in a spot that has a hidden heater element similar to heated side mirrors?

    It is not mentioned in the slim literature given of the vehicle on the show, neither the sales brochure is available yet.
    I haven't see any sprayer on the Headlights at all.
    The vehicle that was shown to the public couldn't be power-up; and the same vehicle that is the upscaled version of the Prime, has a beautiful large screen display but it was off with the rest of the car.
    The power driver's seat felt very comfortable and with a great head-room height.
    Pushing the driver's seat almost all the way back, my comfortable position, rendered about 7" in distance with the back rear seat cushion.
    I liked a lot the new Volt Hatchback

    Tesla 3 will outsell the Prime.

    Yeah they're prototypes. Looks like the silver is the base model (cloth seats, no foglights).

    I have the LED headlights, snow and ice melt off reasonably well.
