200 lbs. load limit on Model S?

Help me out please. On my Model S, the data plate says:

  • Front GAWR is 1,300 kg
  • Rear GAWR is 1,500 kg
  • And the GVWR is 2,694 kg
So then, the front and rear GAWR are the maximum axle weights and total 2,800 kg
Since the car weights 2,694 kg, it seems I can only add 106 kg (233 lbs.) of passenter and cargo.

Only 233 lbs?
