    if anyone rode in the test cars, did they have rear vents for the rear passengers? I live Texas with a 3 year old and one on the way. It's hot.

    I also live in Texas and reserved a 3 so I looked around a bit for a clue to answer your question. Here's a pic from the reveal showing the back of the front seats and a bit of the center console. If you look carefully there appears to be trim for a/c vents in the center console:

    I don't think current Model 3 test cars are a good basis for guessing about this. We all know the interior is the area with the most work needed before it's ready for production.

    But I think Model 3 will have rear vents, because it's designed to directly compete with the Audi A4 and the BMW 3series which both do.

    Even my A3 sedan has a vent in the back of the center console for rear passengers, so I think we'll see that make its way to the Model 3.
