    Heres to hoping GVWR can exceed 6000lbs for tax deduction purposes.

    4647lb

    5 adults = 200 x 5 = 1000lbs
    2 heavy kids = 100 x 2 = 200lbs
    filled frunk = 200lbs

    6047lb :D

    I thought it also had to be classified as a truck to get the deduction but if not, perhaps the non-air suspension model will be heavier.

    The Model S is neither, though.

    According to Toyota, the Model S is a "wagon."

    @Toyota - Shouldn't the Cylinders be "0" not "Not Listed"?
