Tesla Model Y third row support video leaks online

In a surprise move, Tesla last week added a Standard Range Model Y to its lineup after CEO Elon Musk said they wouldn’t offer one. Along with the new addition, the automaker also finally opened up the option to add a third row to the electric SUV.

Soon after the announcement, Rob Maurer from the Tesla Daily podcast showed off the first official photos of the new configuration. From the images we suspected they were screenshots from an unreleased support video.

That support video has now leaked online early, giving us the best look yet at the 7-seat configuration, showing it might have a bit more legroom than initially thought.

According to the Design Studio update last week, we learned the second row seats could slide forward. The video shows this feature in action, and we can see the seats move forward about 5-6 inches.

The video also shows off the two USB-C ports in the third row, which are also mentioned in the Design Studio.

The SR Model Y starts at $56,290 CAD, with the optional third row costing an extra $4,000 CAD. Unfortunately the new price point does not qualify either variant for the Canadian iZEV rebate.

You can check out the full video below, with the segment on the third row starting at about 47 seconds in (via Reddit).
