I guess there are some down sides to a lengthy interior in a relatively shorter exterior. Not a problem in my case as the windows will be shut 99% of the time.
Looks that way. If you look at the cut line at the rear of the back door you'll see there's really nowhere for the window to roll down into. Common in many 4 door cars.
Putting aside that car appears to still be the alpha (which would not represent how the production version is), from the side profile, it looks like the window should be able to go most of the way down (with a tiny bit left as typical). At most they might have to adjust the pillar a tiny bit, but the design doesn't seem to be a problem.
I didn't find a good picture of the S with the windows, open, but this one of the convertible kind of shows it. There is a bit of window left near the B-pillar, but the window is most of the way down. I'm pretty sure the Model 3 shape can be designed for similar.
Model 3 Alpha:
Sure looks to me like it will fit so it can go all the way down. Although it might be the same as the Model S and have a small amount towards the front still exposed.
I am guessing that the alpha's don't have A/C and that guy is dying back there
Remember in the test drive videos the passengers had to ask the driver to roll down the window as they couldn't. Assume this car (which was the same as in the test drives) doesn't have all the hardware/electrics that a production vehicle will have.
Most cars have a button to disable the passengers windows so the kids can't play with them. That might be why the passengers couldn't open them.
I was wondering the same thing when I saw this video.
This was obviously an Alpha version of the car since there are no side cameras visible - unless I'm missing something. So-- hopefully that is a lack of function for the Alpha version.
I'm also wondering - was that a standard Red MX in the beginning of the video? That thing was absolutely beautiful. I don't really like the shape of the MX but that angle view was stunning.
It's a custom by Unplugged Performance (that posted the video)
"Hey, I'm going to only roll my window down half way. It will drive the internet nuts!"
The only way he could've topped that would've been to squint because the glare was too bright from the panoramic roof.
Or to have left something sticking out of the trunk and had it tied closed with bungee cord.
