at around 5 sec in the video above, it looks like the front windshield extends right into the roof with no visable headliner break. you can also see form the exterior in the video below at around 30 sec.
Yes; question is how will they incorporate sun visors and vanity mirrors?
There will still be cross headliner hidden under the tinted windshield just like ones under the pano roof.
With a wrap around windshield, FW doors and a big rear hatch cover, there's not much of a roof.
Or maybe they've incorporated electrochromic glass in place of visors. They could even use the front-facing camera to identify the sun angle and intensity and automatically darken the area needed to keep the sun out of your eyes!
Wouldn't that be awesome!
Awesome, but impractical to accomplish. I can see the need for electrochromic glass in the overhead area, but I think heavily tinting the windshield portion is illegal in most, if not all, states.
There does not seem to be any visible cross beam or sun visors. There is a narrow wire conduit that runs back across the glass from the rear-view mirror assembly towards the second row which would handle any electrical needs there.
While auto-dimming glass would be a cool concept, I can't see how they could eliminate vanity mirrors especially in a vehicle that is designed to cater more towards women. I'm just a bit perplexed how they will be implemented.
They could mount a sun visor to the A-Frame and route the wires run down the A-Frame sides as well.
I meant A-Pillar, not A-Frame, but I figure most people would get what I was referring to. :)
Vandacca, true that sun visors are generally only attached at the A pillar (or just off of it) along with a clip on the headliner to hold them in the forward position. So yeah you could get rid of the clip and then no need for a headliner to attach it to.
This is from another post in the forums, looks really nice.
