Elon's kids looked pretty cozy back there. The floor of the trunk where their legs go is very deep so they had a few bags in there as well.

Thanks for posting these, I really wanted to see those but was on the front side of the stage. From the pics it looks like they are sort of close to the back window, but hard to tell. I assume the press will post more detailed shots this week.

Yeah, thanks for the pics! I wonder if they will have some sort of kick plate option so that the bumper doesn't get scuffed from kids getting in or out.

Those seats looked great, secure and I'm sure all the kids I know would love them.....BUT, I would seriously worry about my daughter cooking back there during the summer months. We had 102F here at end of Sept.

All you guys in Texas, can you imagine seating kids right under the rear window like that?

All the employees I talked to are VERY aware of concerns around safety and climate control back there. Whether they get it right is one thing, but at least know they're thinking hard about it.

Thanks for posting the photos. My kids would love the jump seats. However, I have some concerns regarding safety (rear end collisions) and head bumping. They are both 8 so the usefullness would be 2-3 years. Will have to see how it looks in person and with kids in tow.

Does anyone know what happens with all that foot well space if you don't get the rear jump seats? Is it available as a storage compartment?

I would think so. They never showed what it looked like with the seats folded down. It would be nice (for those with them), if they rolled up like an iPad cover and you end up with a flat floor where the foot compartment was. Without the seats, there should be a cover over the foot well and it would be a nice hidden storage compartment.

There was a photo of one of the other cars with a cover over that space. So I would say yes.
