    Too bad you didn't take profile view including the seat posts.

    man even the seats are not aligned correctly. I even wonder if Tesla has a quality control line.

    Huge thanks for the images! Some notes:

    - Granted, those are not very attractive seats. Really, it is not a very attractive design or implementation. That's the negative.

    - The seats are further back than the configurator/design studio photoshops suggested. It is hard to tell from the photos but the legroom seems to be fairly generous. I think this is a good thing. That's the positive.

    Curious things:

    - The seat sides, seat backs etc. (lever included) seem terribly unfinished. And apparently the sides of the bench are not glossy anymore (but matte plastic), though design studio suggests so.

    - The configurator images and this end-result continue to be different. Configurator shows quite different design for how the rear seat back and the storage compartment cover meet and they show a "wall" at the end of the storage compartment cover that is not there here. Compare to: Flat Fold second row now available.

    Is this an unfinished prototype? (In the same vein we saw different monopost seat designs in early demonstrators.)

    I too would welcome a profile picture that shows the new posts. Funny how IMO the most important picture keeps being so elusive in the recent photo reports. :)

    Anyway, appreciated the pics A LOT!

    Thanks for those pics. I was at the STL service center looking at a 5 seater being prepped for delivery but wasn't allowed to take any pics. They weren't even able to fold the seats down for me as the adjustment lever hadn't yet been installed. I am happy to see how well the seats do fold down. Was it an even plane or is it sloped up?

    Did you notice that the cover for the well in the back also didn't sit flush with the area forward of it? That's how the 5 seater I saw was. And that was even different from the 6 seater that I looked at in the showroom.

    Criminy... that looks terrible. If that is what the finished product looks like, I doubt I'll be taking delivery of my order.

    Rear seats Design & Build look awful. I'm hoping that this is a prototype.

    I don't want to say this but the quality/alignment and aesthetics are worse than my brothers MDX (even my 2014 MDX that I traded in for the X with 6 seats).

    I hope this is an EARLY prototype, perhaps a year old...

    How well does that work with the Falcon Wing doors? :)

    It's terrible for a Tesla level car not for a Toyota

    I am pretty impressed with that configuration. I realize that it is just an early prototype, and not the finished product, but it really puts the Utility into this SUV.

    Lots of room for Costco runs, or carrying kids scoccer gear.

    My Golden Retriever is going to love his new transport.

    Great Job TESLA!

    What makes you think it is an early prototype and not the real thing?

    Thanks. Seems like a ton of space. Build looks similar to a Model S, no issues with those seats. Finally good to get answer on the rear A/C vents too, as looks like they removed and do NOT have the 3rd row vents in rear pillar area - didn't make sense to route more air back there from single A/C-Heater, downside only if have pets in back area without being folded for some reason.

    No, that's not a prototype; the first 5 seat vehicles are being delivered now. At least with the middle shelf installed, you can't see the ugly rear bits of the 2nd row seats. Yes, Tesla could do so much better for $100K+...

    As usual for some, Tesla can't do anything right...

    I don't see what the issue here is... Seriously? What are some of you complaining about?
