That looks really nice.

This may seem like a random notion but I'm wondering about the connector cover flap. It opens to the side as the vehicle is charging. The tesla roadster and the gwiz have similar style charge connector cover flaps. I wonder how these fair in the rain and if they are more prone to vandalism.

Anyone know why these are designed the way they are?
