Don't know any Spanish but I'd guess the black device at 3:55 is the speaker for the pedestrian alert system (and, perhaps, making "Mustang engine" noises LOL).

Yes, I believe you are right. You can also hear the pedestrian alert sound from 4:13 onwards.

Maybe someone can translate the Spanish into English. He is showing some unknown part at 3:59.
Yes, I can confirm he describes that component as the pedestrian warning speaker, and then provides a sample of the sound.

At 7:44, it looks like the outside door handles are more substantial (with what some have called winglets) than on the prototypes.

I agree. They do look shorter and thicker than the prototype version I saw. But they don't appear to curve upwards.

At the 2:27 mark, note the "Charge Scheduling" feature. As well as "Departure and Comfort".

Fully expected that such features would be included, of course, but good to actually see it.

I noticed that too. Basically a 3rd version from what we've seen so far. It's hard to see exactly what it looks like in that video, but it appears to me that it keeps the similar horizontal "U" shape of the original, but is now sized to the exact length to meet the edge of the door, and appears to have a sharper edge on the inside lip. That would be good, as it would be a bit easier to get a good enough handle on it with just your pinky while your hands are full (like holding a drink cup in your right hand).

That's what I liked about the winglet design. It appeared easy just to hook a finger on when you hands were full. This may do the same now, while still also providing a more traditional full finger grab like most people are used to.

The fact that they've seemed to refine this one to be the exact length to fit the edge of the door suggests to me this may be the final product, rather than just various possibilities they slapped on there for trying out.

At 3:24, it states 10 kilowatts in 5 minutes for all versions.

Is this the revised design as well?

It’s hard to say, but they seem different to me. The one in the video looks thicker, more blunt. The one you added with the white painted vehicle seems thinner, more pointed. The hand is in the way so we cannot see the length for comparison. The angles could be deceiving though.

Demonstrating the single finger door open, nice. The sound is good too, like a grumbling electronic sound.
