    Rear Facing Seats (Tesla Model S)

    Carry up to 7 passengers in the Model S by adding seating for two children with rear facing seats. Come from a 2013 Tesla Model S 85 and have never used them. I would rather have the extra space for my junk.

    They run about $2500 when purchased with the car. Not sure if they are available afterwords.

    Willing to ship but would prefer a local buyer.

    I've heard that rear seat car must also have a double rear bumper.

    As mentioned, the rear facing seats MUST be installed in a car with a different structural design. However, I believe early models all had the proper structure. Even if a buyer was somehow able to fit them in a car not designed for it, the safety of the seat's occupants will be compromised.

    I know this sale is done, but the result still shows up in search results. I wanted to slow the spread of this idea - the "different structural design" is a bolt on piece that fits under the rear bumper, called the rear crossmember, Part # 1015811-S0-B. The very early cars had them, later cars just got this part only when ordered with rear facing seats. There is a list of about 17 cars that can NOT be retrofitted, all others can be. The service bulletin that lists those cars is on the NHTSA web site - look for SB-10081820-5448.
