The biggest attraction though is the cluster of buttons along with gear shifter placed at the centre. It houses the start-stop button, climate control, drive modes, traction control and more.

One of the biggest attractions inside the Seal EV is the giant panoramic sunroof which works as a fixed unit. The unique feature of this sunroof is that it gets silver coating which helps it work as a sun shield and keep the interior from getting too hot when out in the open. However, it only works up to a certain extent and it is advisable to get an official accessory to cover the sunroof.
