If I can't afford the Tesla Model S when the Prius is paid off, I want this

You know, a luxury electric impractical 2-door front-drive coupe doesn't sound like it would make sense, but it does. They don't have to cater to people looking for a 3-wide backseat or an economy car price tag, or people who expect electric hybrids of any ilk to 'pay for themselves' otherwise they're not worth it.
This is going to be a no-holds-barred stylish PHEV for people who want a plug-in car, but not a frumpy one. It's probably a small niche, but I wish them well on it.
I hope they have a Vegan trim package. The target audience for an electric luxury car might prefer a vehicle that isn't trimmed in the skins of dead cows. The wood trim might also be viewed as unfriendly to the environment.
I'm fine with leather and wood, but it is something I hope they considered.

we went from a Q5 to a T3 Touareg due to the lack of space in the rear seat area.
it may work for many, but I think the lack of fucntionality hurts cars like this in sales.

GM is definitely considering the MPV market, but at this point, they're more interested in controlling costs by using a volume platform than they are in offering 5 seats.
But in a few years, once they transition to a flat pack battery....bet we'll see this.
