Will Tesla make a flatbed option for the Model X?

Will Tesla make a flatbed option for the Model X?

Flatbed option, no third row. How about that?

Less seats, same price, more profits.

It's a win-win!

Except, is Tesla into art or profits?

Yes definitely flat bed. I love watching those melons roll out the back and smash on the garage floor.

Not good for brand image in my opinion. But don't listen to me, I am a random person on internet.

Or you can have the third row but not 2nd row seats so that supposedly seat belt issue wouldn't matter. It's pretty much a delete 2nd row option and should be easy to provide. Not sure how many people would want it though.

Safe, perfect, and ROOMY 4 seater car!

I'll buy that any time.

For my daily driving, the car will be 50% 1-up (driver only) and 50% 2-up. The other 10% of the time there will be 4-up "plus one" (our Aussie Shepherd) plus gear, plus bikes or a solar boat on the tow hitch.

Most of the time, removing the 2nd and 3rd will save weight and improve performance.

I'd like to have a plastic "liner" to fit the rear or the whole of the "flatbed" area so that I can transport building materials, furniture, tools, etc. A sliding tray cargo bay would be ideal ... something in aerospace titanium alloy would be ideal ... you know ... weight saving and all ...

The first production is already queued up for passenger haulers. When that backlog is being changed to deliveries, I am sure an option for more versatile cargo carrying will be announced to attract a new group of potential buyers.

Uhm... What's the difference between this, and the request for a Model X Cargo Van in another thread?

FLAGGED!!!
