Blue-Will back seats

Look for buckets--not a bench--in the back seat of the Blue-Will. In between is a raised ridge, conspicuously labeled "lithium-ion battery," even though the Blue-Will comes with a lithium polymer battery from LG Chem.

Hyundai Blue-Will front seats

It's a concept car, so don't expect these thin, swoopy seats to show up in whatever production vehicle might come from the Blue-Will effort.
