    Hello

    I drive usually an XC90 hybrid cause i’ve 2 young child, a dog and always a lot of luggage... sometimes 7 seats matter cause of friends or family...

    Want to get for 2019 a full EV with same interior dimension.

    TMS seems to have lot of space and a big trunk with possibility of 2 more seats occasionnally and i love his design
    TMX is bigger with 7 true seats but less autonomy, cost more and a bit less elegant than TMS

    Is there a big difference of interior space/trunk between those 2 Tesla ?

    Many Thanks and sorry for my poor english

    Not sure what you mean by the X having less autonomy, but if you will regularly carry more than 5, the X is the only option. The back 2 seats in the S are really only for little kids and it doesn't have a great AC system back there while the X is designed around having 7 passengers with a separate ac system

    The S does have marginally more mileage, but how often will you use the extra range? Also, most people consider the X to be more luxurious because of features like automatic doors and the massive front windshield.

    That is honestly the best way to tell. When you book your test drive, make sure to ask them to let you test both ahead of time

    There is a massive difference in trunk size for the 5 seater model x vs the model S. The model X trunk is significantly bigger, and also comes with more under floor storage. Do you need a referral code by any chance?

    Just to be clear, both cars are identical for autopilot. If you meant range for autonomy, the few miles difference shouldn’t matter at the level of the 100 pack.

    Not sure when you are thinking about buying but one think to remember if you plan on travelling a lot is that the free unlimited supercharging is going away on Sept 15 and being replaced by only one year of free unlimited supercharging

    The mileage difference between X ans S is quite huge. No way to call it marginal...

    For the 100 d, it is 295 vs 335 (around 10%). In 99% of uses, it won't make a difference

    When you have a chance, take a look at how superchargers are spread around France. Because of the locations of the chargers, your stops will be the same for the S and the X. You might have to charge for 3to 5 minutes more at each stop, but IMO it makes up for it by being much more practical

    Sounds like a 7 seater is important to you. Seems like a Model X would be best.
