How much can fit in a Tesla Model S

I made a video of how much can fit in my beautiful 2013 Mocha Model S P85+. It really is a SUV sedan when you add up all the cargo space.

The older RWD models actually hold a LOT more from personal experience. I don't know the exact balls ratio but on our road trips we were able to hold one of the huge cases of water bottles from Walmart in that spot that goes up under the dash with room left over. I was sad when I saw just how much space in the frunk we gave up whenever we went to the AWD versions. Even less room w/the AWD HEPA versions. I'm still not giving either of those features up for more frunk room though. ;)

The huge frunk on RWD models was so appealing, but by the time we bought our first S AWD was standard. It was a tough choice — give up the big frunk vs give up all the latest upgrades.

I have been contemplating replacing our Model S with an X or possibly even a Y, but I don’t think the shorter Y could fit this 8.5-foot umbrella like the S accomplished yesterday!

I have fit 2 full sets of 19" wheels; rims with tires, to go to the tire shop. One time the wife sat in the front seat.

And then there was the time I stuffed in a King size Tempurpedic cloud supreme.

Several years ago, when we moved twice in 6 months while our new house was being built (first into a much smaller temporary townhouse and then into our new home), we had to put a lot of our belongings into storage for a few months.

Our 2012 S P85 (RWD) was used to move a lot of our stuff - and with the rear seats down - it was amazing how much we could move in one trip, including using the larger (than current) frunk and the underneath storage in the rear.

We only needed to use a larger vehicle for a few items that wouldn't fit in the S.

Our 2017 S 100D still holds a lot - but the frunk is smaller, so we would lose a little of the cargo capacity in that space.

The S is shockingly room in the trunks. When I show people their jaws drop. I love my old 2013 S, just hope I can keep it running. I do have an Electrified garage 25 miles from me.

Compared to our S, our X holds even more - with the rear and middle seats down, we were able to transport 39 bags of bark mulch!

Love the storage capacity on my S. I was able to Fit 4 Golf Bags(2x2 Cross Action in the rear), Weekend Bags, Groceries, and 4 Grown Men comfortably without any visibility obstructions.

Some of the things I've fit in my rwd S.

A mattress.
25 gallons of bottled water and a snow blower.
7 people.
3 bundles of fiberglass insulation.

I sometimes tell people that I drive a station wagon.

Last weekend we took a short 2.5hr trip with 3 adults, 3 kids, and everyone’s luggage including the baby’s pack n’ play. Everyone was comfortable and we still had room to spare for belongings.

How were you able to fit 6 people when legally only 5 are allowed?

I transported the cabinetry for a small kitchen rehab in two trips. The Home Depot guy was amazed at what fit in there. Later went back and got the full sized stove in. Just couldn’t close the hatch all the way however didn’t have to worry about exhaust fumes wafting back into the cabin. An S easily rivals my old e class Merc wagon or my current midsize Range Rover Velar SUV in hauling capacity

Transported a standard-size twin mattress today. I knew it was possible based on people’s camping photos but it was cool to learn the mattress fit without having to adjust my normal driving position.
