The wheelbase is long and that is enough to have a very good interior space, so that windshield extended to the front doesn't make much sense.
About the interior, looks so cheap (well, is a cheap car, after all...) that the interior of the Faster-than-Lambo car looks good... and that is a big problem. The white panels for the screens looks cartoonished. And why that horrible pink color for the upper side of the dashboard?. VW design team are very confused (or intoxicated?) with the idea of a modern electric car.

Maybe VW will sell a lot of these cars because the price, not the exterior or interior design. The ranges are ok, too.

Im still waiting for the correct EV. Not the bored and badly assembled Faster-than-Lambo , not the very expensive Taycan, neither the cheap (in all its meanings) VW ID.3 . Will it be the Mustang crossover EV ?’s a shame you have such a big anti-Tesla bias. It just took the third spot in all sales in the U.K. last month, behind Fiesta and Focus. They score very highly in customer satisfaction, as well. I don’t recommend you test driving one, though, as it might change your mind.

Don’t get me wrong; it isn’t a perfect car by any means. I, too, would prefer something more traditional on the interior, with real firm leather, and not fake Vegan friendly bull-shite, real gauges, some buttons, but the rest of the car is so far out in front of competitors, it isn’t even funny. I’d have to spend $160k on a Taycan Porsche to get something on par with my incoming $56k Model 3 Performance. An interior isn’t worth $100k to me.
