The interior of the Tesla Model X is very spacious and access to the rear seats is very comfortable thanks to Falcon Wing doors (hawk wings, depending on brand) since one of the advantages is the top of the roof rises with the door, making it easier to access the second and third row of seats. The Model X may have up to 7 seats , in configurations 2 + 2 + 2 or 2 + 3 + 2. To open completely, these rear doors need 30 cm of free space. The doors are equipped with sensors to avoid hitting other objects in the opening and closing.

The modularity is also present in the interior of this electric SUV, since all vehicle seats are independent and the second row are movable longitudinally separately and have reclining backs, which helps improve comfort occupants of the rear and the maximum use of space squares. The sense of space in the cabin is enhanced by the large panoramic moon that reaches the front seats, while in the second row, the roof is also glazed on the moving part of the doors.
The space stowage abounds in this new model, as well as the classic compartments, this crossover has storage space under the seats of the second row, the conventional luggage compartment at the rear and a rack on the front. If not enough, it is capable of tow nearly 2,300 kilos , to carry a trailer with all the necessary equipment.
