Will It Fit? 3 Car Seats In Rear Of Tesla Model 3 – Video

Will it fit?

More specifically, will three car seats fit in the rear of a Tesla Model 3?

Car Seats In Model 3

The car seat fitment test is arguably one of the most deciding car tests out there. If the three seats don’t fit in the back, then the car simply won’t work for certain potential buyers.

Sometimes it’s two car seats. Sometimes three. But it’s always a make-or-break test. Either the seats fit and the purchase can be made or they don’t and a different, more accomodating vehicle is found.

A good resource for finding three-across car seats is theCarCrashDetective.com.

I have nothing to do with that site, but I did use it to pick carseats. Three Clek Fllo units fit rear-facing in my C-Max Energi. They have to be belted in rather than using LATCH.

When you drive a passenger van, you are kind of damaged for life when it comes to space.

Can read car reviews, where they test station wagons, and call them the perfect family car, with a lot of space, and there is hardly room for a stroller and some luggage.

I used to drive with a twin pram/stroller, and a single pram/stroller without compacting them at all. Add a lot of gear for the beach, or snowboards, diving equipment and stuff like that. It has room for it all.
That’s when you drive a van – and when you get used to that space, you have a problem.

I could probably fit a Smart car (in volume) in the luggage area, and still seat 9 people.

I’ll end up owning a van for ever – and a small/tiny EV for other stuff.

At least Two of those were small booster seats. Cross country? LOL. Not enough luggage room for 5 people.

They would be better off getting a Pacifica Hybrid for family road trips.

There are ways around this. Thousands of families get by with smaller vehicles than this.

I want to know if you can fit a 10 foot long 2×4 in the Model 3 with the trunk closed. I want to replace my C-max energi with a Model 3. I can fit tons of 4x4s and other lumber in my C-max. The longest piece with the gate shut can be 10 feet long. I could likely go a few inches longer but that is it.

Get a TM3 with a hitch, if it’s possible..
Or buy a van like I have done (with all the drawbacks that follows).

We had a Dodge Caravan. That fit every damn thing……lol

I’ll stick with the C-max if I can’t haul lumber in the 3. I really want to get back to a BEV again.

No. There are videos out there of somebody sticking a full size air mattress in the back of a Model 3. It just fits. That’s less than 6 feet from the end of the trunk to the backs of the front seats.

Get a Pacifica Hybrid……..DONE!

Or Outlander PHEV.

Cant tow 🙁
The ICE Pacifica or Caravan can tow 3500, but apparently electrons don’t have the power to tow.

Nothing to do with Tesla, but…

Am I the only one who shuddered when he suggested driving across the country with 3 young kids? 🙂

ModernMarvelFan

Cosco? That is the crappy brand for child seat.

I will be really impressed if it can fit 3 Britax car seats across…

Then again, almost no cars/CUVs would…

Two of those “car seats” are booster seats and are completely unsafe for children under the age of 4! Even for children over 4, a five point harness is still preferred. The third seat is actually a car seat, but not a very safe option. It’s sad that misleading information is being put out there and people are making decisions based on misinformation. Having looked at a Model 3 thoroughly, this is in no way a family car. Do not be fooled by this sill video.
