Tesla Model Y will have a third row of seats, which is quite a good thing for large families. Many buyers have a desire to purchase a 7-seater Model Y, but until that moment they did not know how long they would have to wait for delivery.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said today on Twitter that the delivery of the 7-seater Model Y Performance is supposed to begin in early 4Q 2020.

Model Y is much higher than Model 3, so it is quite realistic to place the third row of seats in it. Model Y is much higher than Model 3, so it is quite realistic to place the third row of seats in it. In the beginning, the seating position caused a lot of questions.
Sandy Munro revealed that there is a significant amount of room for people in the back of Model Y. This is especially true because of the large cutout under the boot floor, which can provide enough legroom for people who will sit in the third row. Munro said he thought the third row would be facing back.

We also know that second-row passengers have a lot of space for positioning their legs. Even a tall person can comfortably sit there, having still extra space from the knees to the front seats. Perhaps if the second row of seats will be shifted closer to the first row, then the passengers of the third row will get enough space to comfortably position their legs.
Surely it will be specially designed seats that can fit the size of the car and conveniently accommodate passengers. Of course, most likely they will be designed for children or short adults. A typical family consists of two adults and children, so they can quite comfortably accommodate in Model Y.
The first deliveries of a compact electric SUV began 6 months earlier than the set schedule, which is an incredibly great achievement for any automaker. Now those who pre-ordered the 7-seater Model Y will also be able to get it much earlier.
