The shape of the body underwent subtle changes to optimize its aerodynamic performance, resulting in a drag coefficient of 0.149. For comparison, the drag coefficient of the Toyota Prius and the Tesla Model S, at 0.25 and 0.24, respectively, are among the best of current production cars.

A blunt nose like the Schlörwagen is better for low drag than a pointier nose. This too has been discussed many times here on EM.
