Extra storage area in rear?

Extra storage area in rear?

I have a RWD Model S from early 2014. I know the Model X frunk loses space next to my Model S due to the AWD, but does it lose the hidden area in the back in the trunk under the carpet? In my car that was for the booster seats but I use it for storing tools, extra jackets etc and junk I don't want visible. Does the area exist in the X? Is it the same size? Just curious for where to store stuff like that.

I don't recall a "micro-wave shelf in the Model X from the reveal event. However the Frunk is deeper on the X since the chasis is higher from the motors than on the Model S. The Frunk is approx. 11 deep by 45" at the widest point.

Model X rear trunk still has the vestigial foot well that was once for the rear facing seats for the S.

If I could recall from memory, it looked wider from left to right, deeper from bottom to third seat floor, but it's significantly shorter from front to back.

@Tam: I agree with that assessment of the X rear storage.

Today, I popped a 6' stepladder into the back of my Model S with the rear seats folded down. I wonder if I will be able to do that with a 7 seat Model X.

If you watch the video clip of the Launch Event, the emphasis is to carry long luggage such as bicycles, skis, surfboards... on the outside of Model X with an accessory hitch or a trailer.

Off the record (as the video now stopped recording) you can do the same with the 6' ladder as highlighted by the Launch Event.

I do not think you will be able to fit a 6' ladder into the back of a model X. Initial measurement on the web forums indicate it has about 60" (5').

Also the Model X frunk is quite large. Seems wider than the older Model S frunk, and deeper too. It does not have that hidden space in the frunk, but it looks like cubic foot wise, it might be the same volume as the original Model S frunk.

OP: There is still a 'basement' in the Trunk.

Yes there is still the deep rear storage area.

There are pictures and measurements in this thread...

You just jack up your air suspension and tie the ladder underneath.

Probably handle an 18 footer.

@George
Move one of the outer seats all the way forward. Put the ladder in on its side diagonally. 60" length + 44" width gives diagonal of 74".

And you can still have two passengers in the other 2nd row seats.
