Not really, if you replace the touch sensitive controls with traditional knobs/buttons and fancy roof for a traditional one, that interior is pretty much ready to go.

The LCD multi-function display gauge display has already been demoed and announced (see it won't be out in the next year or so then? Lol.

My point being that concept cars used to look so far ahead of the times, whereas that looks current apart from the interior. Not that I'm saying it's a million miles away.

By saying they just need to change bits means its not ready to come out in the next year or so.

Exterior - i like it allot
Interior - well yes
touch finger controls - i will hate this. This will never work unless you are in the parking lot. No old man would be able to change the radio, use the windows properly ).

The fuel consumption figures are not really all that relevant for plug in hybrid cars. They run the tests with fully charged batteries, being able to go partly without fuel. The consumption becomes dramatically worse on a long trip than a short one.
