Video of the beginning of the presentation. Elon Musk demonstrating the Model S' unrivaled cargo space. Including the infamous +2 jump seats in action (unfortunately, you cannot see them in the video, only the occupants):

Cute! But that 8th passenger didn't have much of a view ...

I think it's worth noting that Elon is adorable and I just wanted to hug him up there. :P

Time-out in the trunk? Don't let Child Services track you down! ;-p

Did he drop any clues about the new Toyota initiatives? I'd thought something along those lines was in the works.

Brad Holt | October 3, 2011

Elon didn't. During the tours though our guide just mentioned several of the machines came from Toyota. That's all I remember, at least. There were lots of drinks there... :P
