Anyone see anything about what happens to the back seat when opening the X-wing doors in a rainstorm? Would hate to have the backseat wet frequently.
Anyone see anything about what happens to the front seat when opening the X's front doors in a rainstorm? Would hate to have the frontseat wet frequently.
Anyone see anything about what happens to the rear hatch when opening the X's hatchback in a rainstorm? Would hate to have the hatch wet frequently.
Anyone see anything about what happens to the frunk when opening the X's frunk in a rainstorm? Would hate to have the frunk wet frequently.
Easy. When raining simply park in underground or covered areas. Problem solved.
To evangoghs, really? You apparently don't have kids that would get in and out of the car frequently. Please, serious answers only. If you don't know, it is ok (and mature) to not answer. If you have heard anything about the potential testing of this possibility, I would be interested. Thanks.
The door is larger than the opening and it is like a big umbrella so as long as the rain falls vertically and not horizontally because of the wind, your back seat is safe.
Elon tweeted that the interior surfaces are hydrophobic coated. That is they are water repellent -- affraid of water. Also the doors are larger than the opening. So there is some umbrella effect.
Your comment about the frunk getting wet in rainstorm. We have had trunks in other vehicles opening in rain for years and I've never had an issue with my trunk getting wet. All seems like a non issue to me.
The answer could be the title of this thread. I plan to use it on the windshield and it could help on the glass surfaces of the Falcon Wing Doors.
Live in the Californiacators state, never rains. Light sprinkles.
@vperi, what does light feel when it sprinkles?
where Elon comes from in Africa, elephants get their trunks wet all the time.. Probably in India too?
Doesn't seem to hurt them.
Where is Bert, Ernii ?
Good catch, lousy follow threw.
Point, move to californica, never actually rains just sprinkles.
I opened the rear door of my Tahoe the other day in the rain and wind. The inside of my car got a little wet. I don't see the Falcon Wing doors solving this - but I don't see it making it any worse.
Must have been in Nevada.
California just raging fires, and haters
@vperi...maybe the fires need mental health attention. There are a great deal of counselors in California and the drug companies have medication to attenuate the rage. In Eastern Washington we had wild fires...not domesticated...and they were very devastating...we sincerely empathize...and they are not a funny matter.
