Minimum cargo width 42 inches, I hope this isn't the case, I'd like the option to lay full 4x8ft pieces of plywood or drywall etc in the back with the seats folded flat.In an effort to determine whether the R1S would work for me and my family on camping trips, I reached out to customer support with some specific questions regarding capacity information. Here is what I found out:
Interior cargo volume behind 3rd row (this information I have already seen published): 499 L = 17.6 ft^3
Interior cargo volume behind 2nd row (3rd row folded, this information was new to me): 1,323 L = 46.7 ft^3
Interior cargo volume behind 1st row (2nd and 3rd row folded): 2,499 L = 88.25 ft^3
Cargo floor length behind 3rd row: 21"
Cargo floor length behind 2nd row: 51"
Maximum cargo width behind 2nd and 2rd row: 51"
Maximum cargo width behind 1st row: 58"
Minimum cargo width: 42"
Currently offering an optional compact spare under the rear cargo area. Currently they do not have an option for an externally mounted spare.
Right now I'm using a 49.9 ft^3 bed with tonneau cover plus a 14 ft^3 roof box on top of bed on our dispersed camping trips. While this means I'm giving up 5.5 ft^3 if I don't have the roof box on the R1S, it does mean I'm in the ballpark of making it fit. Now to decide whether waiting for the 400 mile range battery is worth the wait.
