    $15,500 HKD ($2000 USD) option. Requires Premium Interior Package and Subzero Weather Package though.
    Both leather seats have heating and comes with center console that can control media center and panoramic roof via Tesla app. Very tempting, but not interested in the subzero weather package.

    Thoughts? You gain a center console but lose the extra seat. I ordered my S85 middle of last month. Wondering if I can change my seats to these.

    Looks nice. Seems to be trying to fight for the sales to owners who have a driver.

    Not sure it's going to be widely appealing since you lose a seat and also the ability to fold down the rear seats.

    I still think they should design a centre console that can clip into the ISOfix clips that are in the seat already. That way it can be removable when you need to fold down the rear seats.

    Hmm. $ 15000.- option and it looks like those seats will not fold down and the stitching is of the old seat pattern.

    They also dropped the price of the premium interior package and the yacht floor looks standard feature. I wonder if my bill for my June S85D will be price adjusted.

    Thanks for sharing the first images that I've seen... the option looks great. I think the heated seating should not be required but an option.

    I believe you mistyped the option price. It's $5,500.

    According to the Tesla website, the described rear seat controls are done through the Tesla smartphone app, not through the center console as you stated.

    Mods, I think there are currently at least two separate topics about this new option, could they be merged? Thanks.

    $15,500 is in Hong Kong dollars. I should of written that down. That comes to around $2000 USD.

    My opinion is that there won't be too many ppl in Hong Kong throwing $ at this, the back seat isn't really good enough for big bosses with driver. It's OK for kids with driver. For a real limo Tesla needs a long wheel base model with longer leg room, this is still a rumour? Rumor: Long-Wheelbase Tesla Model S Coming Later This Year?

    Even my son of 13 feels the back is a bit tight when getting out.

    I like this.
    But I will ask my leather shop to see if I can mod the seat so they sit much better.
    Now it is same as i3 with only 4 seats.

    no have not got the car yet but if they have the new upgrade seats I might just get that. Let see what happens in the next few months.
    If I don't get them, then I will go to them to redo the seats and the doors to red nappa leather with black stitching like the BMW.

    $15,500 isn't expensive at all, but can I have the middle seat back?

    Ordered my S85 mid Dec. When my wife and I test drove the car, we both liked it a lot, but my wife was very unhappy with the rear seating. She didn't like the bench seating and reminded her of the rear seats of a taxi (esp. the black leather we test drove). She didn't think it was luxurious enough for a car this price. We ended up going with Grey leather without the upgraded interior. Few days ago I showed her pics of these new executive rear seats and she instantly wanted it. I wasn't keen on losing the middle seat and the inability to fold down the seats (I'm not sure if this is the case, but I assume they don't fold down) while paying more at the same time. But in the end, she won out so I called Gavin at Tesla today and asked if we could upgrade it. He says we most likely can, but will have to confirm it today as our car is very near production. It's set for Late March delivery so far. Don't know if this change will push it into April. I maybe one of the early batch to receive the rear executive seats if I can get my configuration changed. Will update you guys on it as I get more info.
