Model X Second Row Console

October 22, 2020 4:01 PM | Stephen Pallotta (Administrator)

Owners of the 6-seat version of the Tesla Model X have another option for a second row center console. Universal Mobility, a firm based in Minsk, Belarus, has a new design available for sale. Called the Unimo Extras (as best as I can determine from the website), it's listed for €1,240 (1,460 USD). It has a modernistic design and several desirable features.

A portion of 6-seat Model X owners prefer having the center aisle open as a pass-through to the third row or a place to put a cooler for long trips. For other owners, a console should have a minimum set of features to be useful. The Unimo has a basic set of features including two deep holders for drink bottles and what appears to be a very comfortable armrest. Built into the armrest is a recessed wireless (Qi) charger.

The design of the Unimo is very sleek and looks great. There are enough finish and material options that will allow most owners to customize the console to their taste. Installation appears to be straightforward for a DIYer. Being someone who expects a lot of functionality in a product, I observed a few shortfalls as well. There's only one wireless charger, when there are likely two passengers and newer aftermarket chargers often have spots for two phones. I would also prefer a non-skid surface throughout the recessed charger. 

Once there's power for the wireless charger, there should also be a couple of USB ports on the top or front of the console for games or tablets, and at least two USB ports on the back for the third row passengers. Finally, there's a lot of vacant space under the armrest that could be put to good use. For almost $1,500, I would expect a lot more. See https://extras.unimo.by/en#armrest for details.

A couple of other options are the Tesla second row center console and the TSportline Executive Desk. Neither of these currently show on the websites, but may still be available. The Tesla center console features two cupholders in front of the armrest similar to those in the Model 3/Y. The armrest lifts up to reveal a storage area with a removable tray. Unfortunately, as with other consoles in the Teslas, there is vacant space that could be put to better use. In addition, there are no power ports on the back side of the console. Pricing information is not currently available on this option on the Tesla website, but other sites suggest checking with the Service Centers. See https://youtu.be/queScgRYFQA for a view of the console.


The TSportline Executive Desk is a very high-end option at $7,500 as reported on Tesla Motor Club. It is unique in its use of retractable tabletops similar to airplane seatback trays. See https://youtu.be/FxfwlpBO_js for a video. The console also contains a duplex 110 volt outlet and two USB ports on the rear.

Center consoles for 6-seat Tesla Model X may be costly and may or may not fulfill the owner's needs. Ingenuity usually comes through in cases like this. Whether it's coolers or stackable storage, portable wireless chargers or USB splitters, the Tesla and traveling communities come through with unique ideas.
