    We are planning a long trip in the car this summer, I have seen lots of posts on rear consoles, most of them with bad results. Even the Tesla Rear Seat Console has issues. Anyone know of a GOOD rear console that wont break? I also would not like to lose my middle seat, maybe something on the floor?? My overall goal is to be able to put an iPad holder somewhere so both kids can watch movies without having to hold the iPad, And hold drinks so they do not spill. Any good NEW options out there?

    I also am considering a front console for additional cup holders, as we may want full use of the armrest for the trip?

    I use the Sasucker Ipad suction mount and the kids love it :)

    As far as a decent cupholder arrangement goes, I too ave found nothing but rubbish:(

    have you checked out www.evampedup.com? I have both the front and rear consoles (Ludicrous), love them. I do not know about the iPad holder, but maybe they do.

    It velcros on. Very strong adhesive and Velcro. I only use it for cups.

    Why not get the official Tesla integrated center console? It addresses most of your requests: extra front cup holders so you don't lose the armrests, cup holders for the rear without losing the middle seat. It's pricey but a nice retrofit. No regrets getting it on my 2014.

    Wow, I don't want to spend $1200 for this. The rear cup holders rattle according to reports. The EVamped set up , both Front and Rear is about $750 and looks better. I think I will go this route.

    We ordered the www.evampedup.com, shipped fast, within the week. Got the standard one for the front and LED for the rear. Also ordered the drawer for my cubby compartment. Installed all of them myself within 20 minutes. Hubby was impressed!

    Follow up: We took the boys on Spring Break, the Front and Rear cup holders were an absolute hit on our trip. Plus, the boys could charge their electronics in the back seat. Well worth the expense and frustration of where to put 4 beverages in this car. When we stopped at Superchargers, everyone had to take a look. I know the new cars have the rear cup holders now, but we did not want to upgrade at this time. Our car is just a year old. Great solution for those who have pre-rear cup holder models. I have to say Customer service was excellent also. We actually got an email making sure we were satisfied and asking how our trip was. That does not happen much today.

    I was thinking of buying the Evannex center console but might be going this route instead. Looks good and it's much cheaper.

    My friend has an Evannex, it is huge! And only hold one beverage unless you want to lose your storage. This one is so much nicer, but that is my opinion.
