I can see the front end treatment being Prius-like aero-wise. But It's hard to
see the rear end being that clean:

I keep wondering if this is a red herring with the true shape being held back

Maybe on the steering wheel (no shifter right?)
On the Prius, the "no regen, no power" condition, usually called "no arrows
glide," is accessed by small, really small adjustments of the gas pedal. It
takes a little while to retrain you right foot, but after a short while you get
used to it. No extra switches, both hands on the wheel.
