Tesla Model Y SUV To Get 7 Seats By End Of Year

Tesla fast-forwards its plans to offer seating for seven in the Model Y to late 2020.


  • Currently, the Model Y only offers seating for five.

  • The Model X is available with seating for seven.

  • Initially, the 7-seater was only planned for sometime in 2021.


As always, Tesla makes headlines with the most simple of announcements. And we’re fine with that because we are fans of the products despite their well-documented issues. Speaking of issues, the Tesla Model Y’s quality bugs have made the news as they’ve become a source of headaches for the California-based EV builder. Even though the Model Y’s started off on the wrong foot, consumers and fans still want to know more, including when the optional 3rd row will become available.

Tesla Model Y Quality Issues Not Unexpected But Still Disappointing

In typical Musk fashion, the product-planning answer came on twitter following a question about the option’s arrival date as it’s been part of the Model Y’s online builder for a while. The accompanying note “Seven Seat Interior Available in 2021” no longer applies.

 

 

There are those who’ve seen and been in the new Model Y have difficulty imagining that many will actually make use of the option given the vehicle’s overall compact dimensions. The pictures you see here were taken about nine months ago and show that there’s precious little room for lower limbs. The 2ndrow  will slide for and aft but even so… It’s possible, however unlikely that this has changed much.
