Tesla Model X: Accessing Third Row Seats (if equipped)

Bench Seats

If your vehicle is equipped with bench seats, a button is located on the backrest of each second row outboard bench seat. This third row ingress button makes it easy for passengers to enter and exit the third row seating positions. Press and release the button on the left outboard seat to tilt and move the combined left and center seats forward. Press and release the button on the right outboard seat to tilt and move the right seat forward.

Front and Rear Seats

WARNING: For vehicles with third row seats, do not use the third row ingress button located on the backrest of a second row outboard bench seat when a child is seated in the second row. Using the button allows the combined left and center seats to be moved forward and can squeeze the occupant. Use this button only when the second row seats are unoccupied. Before driving, ensure the seat and the seat back are securely latched into position.

In some situations, such as when you are parked on an incline or when the seat's trim affects the movement of the bench seats after you press the button, the bench seats might not move forward completely, and you may need to push the seats forward gently until they reach the end of the track.

WARNING: After you use the third row ingress button to access the third row seats, push the bench seats back to their seating position, ensuring the seats are securely latched into position by trying to move them forward and rearward. The seat must be fully latched into position before driving. Push or pull the seat until you hear the seat "click" into place. Failure to do so increases the risk of injury.

Monopost Seats

If your vehicle is equipped with monopost seats, a third row ingress button is located on the backrest of each outboard monopost seat in the second row. This button makes it easy for passengers to enter and exit the third row seating positions. Touch Controls > Safety > Third Row Easy Entry and choose how you want this button to work:

  • ON - Allows you to tilt and move the associated outboard seat fully forward, and the center seat partially forward, with a single-press of the button.
  • OFF - When off, which is recommended if a child seat is installed in the second row, you must hold the button to move the second row seats.

Front and Rear Seats

After using the button to access third row seats, simply press the button again to return the second row seats to their normal position.

WARNING: Do not use the third row ingress button located on the backrest of a second row outboard seat when a child or occupant is seated in the second row. Use this button ONLY when second row seats are unoccupied. Using the button tilts and moves the seats forward and can squeeze an occupant. Do not rely on Model X to recognize or accommodate seated occupants while using this button.

Guidelines for using the third row ingress button:

  • If a front seat is positioned such that the second row seat will collide with it during an easy entry operation, it automatically moves forward enough to accommodate the forward position of the second row monopost seat.
  • When an outboard seat tilts forward after pressing the button, its backrest resets to the forward position and may need to be re-adjusted for comfort.
  • Forward movement of the second row monopost seats cancels if an occupant adjusts a second row seat while it is moving.

WARNING: Always ensure that the seat is locked in position before traveling. Failure to do so increases the risk of injury.
