Rear facing seats in newer Model S Plaid?


May 19, 2022
I've searched TSC and the net in general but couldn't find any confirmation if the rear-facing seats could be installed in the new Plaids. I find articles from 2019 about how the new Plaids will offer them, but I can't find any information or examples since. The cubby is still in the trunk area, so I was curious if an old rear-facing seat setup can be installed into the new Plaids?
I’ll start by saying, I don’t truly know.

As someone that has retrofitted these seats in my 2014, I’m fairly familiar with where and how they attach.

Looking at the refresh the trunk shape doesn’t look the same. Pulling up the carpet also makes this even more apparent. I didn’t dig through the soundproofing to 100% confirm anything, but I’ll attach the picture so that you can see yourself.

Almost certainly the answer is no.
