Car Seat Attachments

edited August 2012 in Model X
If you look at the Honda Odyssey, their 2nd row of seats has impressive flexibility. One of the things you can do in this car is have 3 car seats across the 2nd row. Not too many cars have the space or the attachment point to do this!

I'm hoping the Model X will have 3 car seat attachment points in the 2nd row, and a total of 5 attachment points for the whole car!

    LP, as author of the thread you can hover over the Tesla motto in the upper left and delete (or edit) one of the duplicates.

    That would be pretty cool. Our Suburban has plenty of space for three across but only two LATCH pairs. The most annoying thing is that one pair is in the middle.

    Listen-up Tesla, we need LOTS of LATCH anchors!

    I don't know about the Model X (and I don't think Tesla has even decided that yet) but the Model S Spec page says that it will come standard with "Two second row LATCH attachments for child seat installations". If that's a concern for you wrt to the Model X, I think you should contact your rep so that he or she can feed your request into the right channels.

    I don't mind if there are only two LATCH attachment points, but as a current Model S owner (I actually have two), I am really annoyed by how close the seat belt receptacles (I'm not sure what the technical term is) are to each other. In a normal booster seat, in the back seat of the Model S, my kids can't get themselves in and out of the car. That's not good (my kids--future Tesla owners?--prefer to ride in a Prius because they can be more independent!) much for being a family car.

    As a work around, I bought a new set of more narrow booster seats, and seat belt extenders...but if you really want to be family-friendly, design the Model X around real-world constraints (like the most popular booster seat model!).
