Model Y Third Row Seating Revealed -
Recently, the highly anticipated Model Y third row seating was revealed. Ever since the Model Y has found its way into the garages of Tesla owners, there have been questions surrounding how Tesla will be able to fit a third row of seating in the rear without making it painfully small. Deliveries of the third row Model Y have not yet begun, but Tesla claims that deliveries will begin in the next couple weeks. As of now, the photos Tesla released look like the third row may be better suited for children rather than adults.
