While they fold flat onto the rear seat cushions, they don't provide a flat load floor all the way from the hatch to the rear seat backs, as there's a considerable step up, perhaps as much as a foot. So, better but not yet ideal for cargo, and useless for sleeping in barring the use of a pad or box to raise the level of the cargo area to the folded seat height. OTOH, as someone pointed out in the comments, is anyone who can afford a car costing around $100k likely to sleep in the back of their car?
New video has surfaced which shows that the new 2nd row seats do indeed fold nearly flat and level with the cargo area floor (which has to use a couple of removable panels to raise it to seat back level), about the same angle or maybe a bit better than my Forester, so good. Via IEVS: http://insideevs.com/video-5-seat-tesla-model-x/ So you give up some height, but have straight-in loading all the way to the front seat backs. I'm a little concerned that the panels don't appear to be supported except at the sides, and appear to be a bit flimsy to support heavier loads or sleeping bodies, but it would take personal inspection to see if my concerns are justified or not. In any case, this gets the Model X closer to what it always should have had from the get-go. Now, if they could just dump the Falcon Wing doors and use either regular or sliding doors, they could put a motorized shade in the roof to cover the panoramic windshield when desired (as Citroen did on their cars that first used this type of windshield), instead of some afterthought removable sunshade that looks as if it costs $12.95 at Kragen or Pep Boys.
