I really like that they didn't get carried away and too ambitious with making it look closer to the concept, instead this is very practical. Compared to the Infiniti Q30/QX30 and Mercedes GLA, it fits right in. Great find.

Like how they still kept the shape of the headlight, but toned down the interior of it for road use. It actually isn't too different from the concept aside from some very subtle changes and I'm hoping the production model looks similar to that. Who knows, the artist could be spot on.

Probably the most interesting part of the design is the fact the dip in the hood is still here in the rendering.
If that actually makes its way to production i'll be surprised. I just hope it will keep leaves and all the unwanted stuff out.

That dip in the hood is really nothing to worry about in terms of leafs and what not. Once you're driving, it'll all blow out. It'll be sealed anyhow so there's not much to worry about anything getting "in" because there won't be a way for it to get in lol

They better be using it for more than just aerodynamics since that's a lot of air passing through the vehicle, using some of that flow to cool the batteries should also be in order, among other cooling methods and vents.

The complete battery system could look like the one below, with coolant constantly flowing throughout it. Maybe the heat from the batteries can be used to warm up the cabin like the Tesla, that would save even more energy and extend the range.

This has me thinking how a Tesla supercar would be designed since odds are they will have some aggressive vents integrated to ensure as much cooling and ventilation as possible along with aerodynamics. The Porsche 918 is a great extreme example of what Tesla and other car makers might do.
