Holy crap. Now it's back to the car in the original reveal of the Model X.
Model X | Tesla
Excellent - now the mountain biker (and many others) dream car. I've never liked bike racks.
So now we're back to this:
All seats folt flat just like the Model X reveal.
So how does one enter into and exit from the 3rd row? I hope the 2nd row seats can slide forward enough.
The 6-seater config remains the same. Basically the 7-seater gets the second row from the 5-seater.
Note on Tesla's Model X page showing all the different loading possibilities (views from the rear of the open trunk), the one config they don't show is all 3 seats 2nd row up. IMO the 7 seater in this config basically makes the rear two seats useless for anyone with legs, and that's why they didn't show this. The 2nd row seats basically make a big wall uncomfortably boxing in the 3rd row passengers.
Six seater FTW!
Text desc on the site match what you posted.
still $3000 option which is too much given that now the second row does not move forward and reclining is manual)
I am so happy I stuck with the 5 seater...great for me and so easy to use on a daily basis
That 7 seater may now just be a cramped interior. Unless you have a large SUV, these 3rd row seats are pretty useless and even more inconvenient if you want to throw kids back there. Plus, now you lose the extra storage underneath the seats akin to an airplane seat. Will have to see it in person.
Having the center console the same price as a 6 seater seems odd though.
I have the same question. The Falcon Wing Doors don't have enough width at the bottom to allow ingress/egress in the old 7-seater without moving the bench forward.
I would definitely considered the 7 seater if the 2nd row folded. maximize passenger and space makes the car even more dynamic. I do wonder how the entry to the 3 row will be affected.
Maybe a mechanical easy access slide and tilt lever like they have on the Honda Odyssey and other minivans and SUVs?
Not really, though.
The original had folding electric monopost individual seating second row.
This one has a manual bench as a second row. No more sculptural beauty seats.
I guess there is the question if the seven seater can still move the bench forward and aft electrically or manually?
Funny, when the 7 seats came out people were complaining second row not folding. Now the second row folds people are concerned about the access to the 3rd row.
What's funny about that?
Had Tesla released the folding monoposts originally shown we'd know their abilities, but a manual bench as second row is rather different. Tesla originally made a big deal how monoposts solved the third row access... Seems like a very legit question to me.
I'm guessing it moves on the floor level...
All this said, I guess we can abandon all hope of folding monoposts now.
Online sales help says the middle row is split 60 40 and does slide foreword. Finally, "all that space". Anyone want a P90D?
It seems to me the bench uses the same rails as the old seven seater to move back and forwards. I wonder if it is electric and where the button is?
With 3 teens, the 7 seat option was just too cramped for us. Glad we stuck with the 6 seater... middle aisle for easy in and out. Having the 3rd row fold flat is enough for me.
But obviously, if cargo is your concern, both rows folding flat would be an advantage.
This is a good change. Would have been nice to allow folks to keep the old setup if they wanted. Also, Tesla needs to demonstrate the access to the third row..
According to other posts it slides forward. So it is just like the prototype. And we don't know how those seats are attached. It might be different than old 5 seater.
