    Is there a dark gray / black interior seating material option?

    I'm pretty sure one of the 3 interior options was black. I took a pic of that on my phone - will try to dig it up.

    Yes. There were three options shown: Cream, Tan and Black. I don't remember what they called the cream color, but it looked almost like a very light tan or an off-white. There is no "white" option they used on the prototype.

    Thanks Doug. The light colour I described is the one called "Zuma White"; I wouldn't describe it as "white" though, be interesting to hear what others think.

    I guess Zuma would refer to the beach in LA. I thought it was pretty white.

    Thanks for the responses, all. I would have been surprised if there were only white and tan seating options, so it's good to get confirmation of "Mammoth Black" from you.

    I wonder what the little triangular button to the right of the touchscreen is for? The one on the left is apparently the hazard flashers.

    The glare/reflection on the screen is a bit concerning.

    Traction Control? It almost looks like a satellite dish...

    The 2 wood panel options are they actual wood or just wood pattern plastic? I like wood but I always felt plastic with a wood look was silly, and I'm not sure I want the piano black :)

    I didn't look closely at the materials, but I think you might call it a veneer. It was very shiny. It could almost be a print, but I gather it has wood material with lacquer on top?
    Someone else can probably say better, as I didn't look that closely. I think it was more about visual appearance than anything tactile.
