The owner decided to try Tiny Living in his Tesla Model X while working as a Lyft driver.
For many, living in their car means either being broke or, well, being utterly broke. There's only a small percentage of people that actually consider living in their vehicle for a prolonged amount of time a great idea, but who aren't strapped for cash. Or sanity. Nick, the owner of this Tesla Model X P75D dual-motor all-wheel drive belongs to a third group. This rather special group of people is usually shunned by the rest of human civilization. They're keen on making moves that most others don't understand. Moves that may seem irrational at best, but almost certainly, crazy to most.
Nick, when afforded the chance to get a Model X, decided to ditch his rent and drive Lyft for a living, all the while living in his vehicle, enjoying life and pushing for a better future. And for people like him, doing whatever is necessary to own his dream car is what we must applaud to. After all, it's people like Nick that drive the world forward. No matter what some may say.

Certainly, for most of us, living in a car might be our last ditch effort. However, this guy seems rather happy about this venture. He uses all the available storage spaces in the Model X perfectly, adjusting what might seem like a harsh experience, to a comfortable degree. However, there's a lot of issues that living in a vehicle present here which are not even remotely Tesla related.
