    Just wanted to give a BIG thanks to omarsultan and Bonnie for helping to coordinate a Model X visit for me and my family! We got a chance to check out omar's Model X and see all the nice and fancy features it has to offer.

    Sadly, we are going to have to pass on the X since there just isn't enough comfort room or storage for a family of 7, but I am grateful that I got the opportunity to view it up close and personal thanks to you two!

    The Tesla community is amazing and truly goes above and beyond for helping each other!

    We already have a 2005 Odyssey and it's working for now, but we will need something bigger soon!

    You could look at the Chrysler Pacifica hybrid which is a plug in hybrid 7 seat minivan and claims something like 30 miles of electric range before going to gas. They are brand new and little hard to get now, but hopefully becoming more available soon.

    That was gonna be my suggestion, too. Not a Tesla, not as slickly integrated, but seemingly a solid car, and a lot more space.

    It looks like they are going to start shipping them to dealers mid April and because they are in high demand and short supply, the dealers are selling them at over MSRP. I looked at some pics and specs and the only concern I would have for a family of 7 is the third row middle seat looking a little tight:
