I know Tesla reads these postings, and I understand they take them seriously. I want to bring attention of a serious liability error, IF they decide to forgo a bolted-down closed center console storage compartment, and leave it open as a open storage area (or what is currently seen with the beta's).
Anyone who understands car crashes, knows that anything that is not secured down, in a secure compartment, or behind a secure barrier, can become a dangerous projectile! In the above link, by ABC News, we can clearly see why leaving the area between the front seats of the Model S, could potentially create a liability situation for Tesla Motors, in the event that anyone uses this open center area as a storage area for anything less than a jacket, or sweater.
Furthermore, If I were the legal council for Tesla Motors, I would HIGHLY persuade them to either...
a) Include a standard bolted down closed center console, with closable compartments for storage.
b) Leave the center area in-between the front seats completely void of any barrier (just like the rear seats), and innclude a written disclaimer that stowing anything in-between the front seats is a crash hazard.
