I hope they plan to have more ventilation than just those two sliders on the side glass if they plan to sell many of them in countries with summer climates warmer than Germany's. With all of that near horizontal glazing the interior would be an oven under a tropical sun. Also the interior seating, controls, and electronics will need to be water proofed for when entering and exiting the car in the midst of a heavy downpour, unless they can install a retractable cover that unrolls when you open the front door/hood/lid.

They also need to do something about that windshield wiper hanging out in the breeze. At least center it on the windshield if they can't hide it behind a wind deflector at the base of the windshield.
