I think $150 is a reasonable price (though unclear about the concept and how it'll work) if the build quality is good and also because at a service center they'll be attaching this securely somehow (maybe via bolts).
I drank the kool aid on Tesla a couple months ago...but, I have to say.....Whatever engineer was put in charge of 'Rear Seat Cupholder Development' should not be allowed to work on design concepts for the "x" or 'E' :wink:
...nor the accountant that came up with the pricing :biggrin:
I wonder if these could be double purposed as chains to keep your kid from kicking the back of your seat? That might be worth $150.
Having cup holders on the floor is just silly. The chances a cup won't get kicked are slim and none. Not to mention staining the back of the seats.
Tesla please go back to square one and try again:frown:
My kids are long out of seats, but still young enough to be reckless. Imagine leaving a coke in one of these, then stepping out/back into the car. They will easily kick it over. Hell, I would likely kick it over. This may be good for a long trip and rare use. But then, how expensive will it be?
I personally think these are absolutely great. They are an elegant solution. They will work when you need them and virtually disappear otherwise. All 3 rear seats are retained. All legroom is retained. You guys who are dissing them need not order.
I bought mine instantly on line. There is no added shipping charge. The price is essentially SC installation labor and therefore not unreasonable considering how much everything else from Tesla costs. I predict these will become standard on all new Model S's at some point for no extra charge.
Man guys, chill out! This is an installed price. I would bet they aren't making a lot of money on them. At least they have an option, many sedans don't have second row holders at all, at least without giving up an entire seat. Look at third party options, no need to dump on Tesla.
We also like the design.. Perfect for holding a couple water bottles. I suppose it may be less ideal for children riding in the back who might be more likely to kick it.
