If you want legal opinion you will need to post this question in the Ask the Lawyer forum. I am not a lawyer, but I do not believe this new open carry law affects having a weapon in your vehicle - that falls under another law.
Yes, in Texas a pistol cannot be visible from outside the vehicle - i.e. must be out of site but not necessarily in a holster.
As far as leaving the vehicle and your wife not having her concealed carry permit, that has no bearing. Your concealed carry permit is not what allows you to have a pistol in your vehicle, it allows you to carry it on your person when outside the vehicle (with restrictions)
Again, I am not a lawyer and don't know all the "legal" explanations. I'm sure someone will interject if I misrepresented something.

Quote from: "605446"
Does anyone know how the new Texas open carry will affect carrying a handgun in a vehicle. Is it required to be concealed if not on your person? Does it have to be in a holster if not concealed? If you leave the vehicle, (say, with wife waiting, and she has no CHL), does pistol need to be concealed? Details like these. Thanks

Basically, it must be concealed unless it is in the belt or shoulder holster of a permit holder.
