I agree that it's got a solar panel inside the boattail. Looks like they also replaced/removed the glass in the rear doors and rear windshield, probably for weight reduction. I'm guessing they are only using the small lower portion that the Priuses have, for rear viewing. Also I may be wrong, but the side skirts look like PVC shower pan liner to me.

Nice pics!
I drove for over 5 years with side video mirrors. I had to put the stock optical mirrors back on for each annual inspection, but I never had any issues with the video mirrors.
