Does anyone know how much extra weight the FWD add to the car? What about space?

Heavy reinforcement of center of roof, very thich and massive doors, electric motors etc. Maybe 100-200lbs/100kg in total compared to ordinary doors without glass roof? The width of the back seat in the X was disappointing concidering the overall width of the car. It felt very cramped when my wife and I were sitting next to each other in the back seat (myself in the middle, bumping my head in the thick center of the roof). I`m 186cm/90kg and my wife about 169cm/57kg.

I'd definitely recommend the 6 seater to open that right up.

Having had my X for 3 months now I can't imagine it being like all the boring ICE cars already out there. It is not a car, it's a Tesla. There is no way Tesla is going to change these to old fashion doors. If you can't accept the wings then buy an SUV that is mundane and polluting.
