Yikes, is it me or does all of that (except for maybe the cup holder?) look tacky as can be?
These are crude examples, expect higher quality injection molded options in the aftermarket. Yes they all look at best crude, at worse tacky.

Every time I see this, I wonder why is there only 1 slot in the cabin but 7 under the rear seat?

Why didn't they make a slot near the dash...build a phone holder or cord organizer there? Why not one near the door, could build a tissue holder, another on the dash to build a coin slot, etc.... Multiples in the rear seat area for those passengers, one for a tablet stand or use for a writing surface? OK, I don't really want any of those, but maybe someone else does? Instead we'll have one slot for more cupholders and 7 under the seat?
I just want to see demo models in showrooms, I will not order till I drive one !

My guess is the ones under the seat are primarily for storage so that if you have different designs you can select the one you want on the back of the console and the others are will be securely stored under the seat so that they are not rattling around.

iPad holder for back seat movies would be a good use of the FIT slot

I know this thread is a little stale but this is how it works in the design phase. No kidding. I have a friend of mine that is a head engineer at Toyota and he 3D prints all of his component designs before they move forward from R&D. Some of these units are so awesome, I can't tell they are 3d printed at all and frankly, one doesn't have to deal with the mold. Typically once this is designed and approved, it will go to procurement stages where the samples are then sent oversees for this same process..

I'm excited to see where this goes! I don't have a 3D printer, but hopefully, there will be some cool things I could use. Although I feel like my slot will stay empty mostly. Unless it was that little trash container or something.
