Quite a lenghty walkaround but offers nice insights.
One of the people says its a demo auto, not final production one.
Still, they fiddle around with the screen and it seems to be working quite well.

Nice detail at 14:25 where a paper in Dutch (not German) says: handbuilt model, so it might have imperfections

I wish I knew German. But lots more details. I think I saw USB-C as well as regular USB outlets. Europe seems to get a lot more access.

Yes from what I read around the web, they're focusing on Europe first.
And indeed it has both USB sockets!

I think this car travels all over Europe.
It's probably the same car I sat in on the 16th of January in The Netherlands.
That day there was this same piece of paper withe the dutch text on the dash.
And Indeed 4 USB connections, 3 B and 1 C.
The car is much more impressive in reality then in the video.
I did put in my reservation the same evening!

What does that extra little 1 inch mini display right on the steering stack show?

That's not a display. It's a sensor that's there to monitor the driver to ensure you are paying attention to the road. This will enable hands free driving later on.

Oh, so the car as it stands has no steering assist or any driving assist (stop go, etc)? I thought it came standard with that.

It does but you have to keep your hands on the wheel. Ford has said later on they will enable hands free driving so the sensor is part of the equipment needed. Ford is putting the hardware in place at launch in preparation for the software update.

Here in the US at the Cleveland Auto show, the car was on a display platform, and you could not even get close to it - let alone sit in it.
