Technically I guess this is a velomobile pedal powered tadpole trike with electric assist

I keep redoing the design and re measuring myself and looking at plan online to get the dimensions correct but I think I have it. Really just a simple composite fiberglass shape

I'm voting for the 'Sports Coupe'

So with all this designing- have you considered how your getting in and out of the thing?
Many that I have seen have a flip up half. As to the Canopy- Not sure you will want that at all. Most find the heat too intense wit it enclosed. I have been to Norfolk during the summer and Georgia is not that far away. So I would be sure to make in removable or you will have a very short riding season with it.
I agree with Ed only on the basis of the coupe being shorter. However it will be very dependent on your battery capacity as to if the shorter version would work. Also will depend on how big your rear wheel is going to be. I suspect you will need to carve out a full sized foam body to be sure of your dimensions.

Actually they are both the same size the piece shown at the bottom is the only difference between the two. I was going to make it hinged on the side so the entire top section opens like a clam shell and is also interchangeable. The coupe top is for winter and rainy days the roadster for summer and fun. The average Georgia summer day is a steam bath I would die under the enclosed top

Don't know if this helps but this figure is about 5'10"

Nice design.

If you look here Simon made a negative of his shape and then put the sections around his chosen seat and wheels/pedals etc

That way he could determine if he fit inside the shape , handy to see if you can pedal and move your shoulders around ? etc
