Germans are white people. Look up #84 on the list of things white people like: Gear. Lots of Gear. We even have gear farkles over here. -Atomicalex
Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden
This is the day everything changed. It is rare that a event is so hyped, and then delivers so thoroughly.

I think the front end looks a little weird. I know electric cars don't need a grill, but it looks sort of strange with nothing up there. That's the same reason I don't like the Model X front end much.
I also don't love the spartan interior.
I do like the overall proportions.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out after the big delays in the Model X. I thought GM might have a slam-dunk over Tesla because the Bolt could be on the scene as a real, available car well before the Tesla. But, the Tesla will probably have more cachet.
The DOT is going to want markings on the controls for turn signals / wipers / lights, and there are none visible and you can't do stuff like that through the touch screen. Selecting whether one wants to go forwards or backwards or park isn't a good thing to do via touch screen, either, although I wouldn't put it past Tesla to try.
The filled-in cupholder openings don't make any sense. If those are flip-down covers of some sort, that's unnecessary cost and complication.
Vent openings are probably in that lip that goes all the way across the top of the dash.
It will be pretty close to this.
