I wanted to also share these videos I took. They show how the latch system works and how its preventing me from smashing my fingers with the door. Pretty cool I thought. I had concerns but they honestly thought of it all with this vehicle. I also took a video of the charging port.

Thank You! Anybody else looking at the pictures think the center section with the rear passengers where the usb ports and vents are will always be dirty?

Thanks! I'd read that the doors don't let you pinch your fingers but that really brings it to life and makes it convincing!

yeah I had to test it out because I have a little guy that loves messing with the car door and I would hate for his fingers to get smashed and I tested it all around. I tried to see if I could record the mechanism but basically there is a small cylinder or piston on the door with a rubber bumper at the end and when you press the button to open the door it engages and pops out and pushes on the inside of the door panel which causes the door to open. Now the thing is this cylinder/piston stays engaged until you open the door fully. Once you open the door wider it then pops back into the door and disappears and allows you to close the door just fine. Pretty smart if you ask me!

Safer for kids than a traditional door really.

Yeah, they did presentations where they described their human center design approach. One of the reasons they did it that way is that they noticed little kids tend to open doors through the crack. I guess a traditional door handle is awkward when you're that short.
