Where to put kiddie crap in X with no door or seat-back pockets?

    I'm loving the X I've rented and imagining it as a family mobile - but on storage it falls woefully short of - every other crossover and minivan. Any tips/workarounds from those of you using an X as your minivan/SUV family hauler?

    Are there aftermarket seat-back pockets? Storage bins? Underseat storage compartments?

    We use the diono car pal caddy. Fits perfectly below the 2nd row cup holders/vents. Also use car seat protectors with pouches as the base of the seat.

    I actually like the lack of storage. This way I can add what I need rather than filling what's already there with useless junk.

    Have 2 kids but no kiddie crap in the car. Whatever brought to the car leaves the car.

    Prepare to be told that the lack of storage is a "design feature".

    I have 2 as well and we are the same. Whatever enters the car also exits when we get home. No kiddie crap left in car besides car seats.

    I told my wife that the grandkids' "kiddie crap" goes in her car. Not my $120K Tesla X :)

    That's easy, a standard Rubbermaid storage container fits perfectly between the seats... assuming you have a 6 seater.

    I use both the stow`n`go and the car caddy. For us the X is our car trip, skiing, family travel car as well as what I take my girls to school in every day. The car caddy has worked well as a 'catch all' and I use the stowNgo as a slightly more organized space, though I don't love the extra kneee space they take up as they can't stick to the backs of the seats perfectly.

    We've considered the Rubbermaid for skiing (as a ski prop as well) but so far haven't needed it.

    Lack of storage is a big problem for me in the X. I can live with it but its a big inconvenience. Tesla did not consider families when designing the interior.

    I purchased Diono Travel Pal Car Storage as some of you suggested (thanks!) and it was good! I imported so shipping was high but surprisingly Diono hasn't entered Japanese market. Here, we have many fancy-themed, anime-themed or plastic cheap-looking storages but hard to find simple storage like Diono.
