Model X

2nd Row Captain Chairs

edited November -1 in Model X
Greetings from a very happy Model S P85 owner (17,000 miles), and Signature Reservation holder (#1010)for the Model X.

We all tend to develop strong preferences about various features. I have driven nothing but large SUVs but made an exception for the Model S. However, I will be happy to replace it with the Model X because comfortable as the Model S is to sit in - it is always a chore to climb in and climb out - hence my preference for larger SUVs. I'm 6' 2" and weight 220 lbs. Maybe its my age! (55)

Anyway, another VERY strong preference for me is to have 2nd-Row Captain Chairs. It is a cinch for 3rd-row passengers to get to their row and it is very comfortable for the 2nd-row passengers. I have refused to have any other configuration in my Ford Expedition, Cadillac Escalade, and Lincoln Navigator. For my family, it is the ideal, and it is the only way to go.

Obviously my desire to enjoy the Model X exceeds my exceeding distaste for a 2nd-row that is a bench instead of captain chairs. It's the price of being an early adopter.

But I thought I would lob this topic in from the cheap seats (pun intended) in hopes that 2nd-Row Captain Chairs might someday be an available configuration in the Model X.

    I see this as an option in the Model X redesign (in 3-5 years), although I agree that it should be available sooner than later.

    I hope we are both surprised that when the configuration is available that we see Captains Chairs.

    I'd be down for those as well. Count my vote!

    Are they compatible with headrests and shoulder straps? Pix.

    Captains Chairs would allow for cupholders, map pockets, foot rest reclining, and possibly an integrated lift up/fold out table top for each chair. That would be nice.

    I would love to see this option as well.
    And a removable third row please (or at least fold very flat into the floor)

    I think someone mentioned that to Elon once. He said it could certainly be possible to have a removable third row. Though he did comment it would make for a rather expensive van.

    ;-)
  • I want in this club! Model X with second row RECLINING CAPTAIN CHAIRS WITH FOOT RESTS! Do I hear a chorus out there?

    La-Z-Boys in a car? They even gave up on those in trains and planes.

    Looks like the second row will definitely be split so that seats can slide forward for ease of 3rd row access.
    My Honda Oddysey has an wide arm rest that folds down in the middle of the second row with 3 cup holders and a small storage tray. The two second row seats also can be adjusted outward about an inch and a half on each side to provide more seating width. The seat backs fold flat for more storage space and the seats can be removed entirely to increase the usable space. When the arm rest is in the up position, it is the back for the middle seat. I don't think the seats recline. All in all, it is a sensible design that I would be happy with in the Model X.

    Count me among those hoping (requiring) captains chairs in the second row.

    I want/require standing room in the second row.

    Captain seats would definitely give the MX a mini van feel. We have a Sienna and those seats make it really easy to move inside the car. Hopefully, it will be offered as a less expensive option. The Sienna even has an additional chair option that is easily removable in case of an extra passenger. Food for thought...

    Thinking ... why would you remove a chair to fit an extra person? Personally, I'd do the opposite. ;!!)
