Tesla Model Y: Guidelines for Seating Children

Your Model Y seat belts are designed for adults and larger children. You must restrain infants and small children in rear seats only, and you must use a suitable child safety seat appropriate for the child's age, weight, and size.

WARNING: Never seat a child in the front passenger seat, even if using a child safety seat.

WARNING: Never seat a child on a seat with an ACTIVE AIRBAG in front of it. DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY to the child can occur.

WARNING: Always ensure that all Model Y seats are locked in position before traveling. Failure to do so increases the risk of injury. Pay attention to all warnings displayed on the touchscreen.

WARNING: Do not associate the Easy Entry setting with the driver's profile when a child is seated in the second row. Doing so can cause the driver's seat to push against the child, especially when a child is seated in a forward-facing child seat or booster seat. Do not rely on Model Y to recognize or accommodate a child seated in the second row while using this setting.

Refer to the following label located on the sun visors.

NOTE: The image(s) shown below are representative only and may not be identical to the labels in your vehicle.

Guidelines for Seating Children

Model Y has an occupancy sensor in the front passenger seat that controls the passenger front airbag (see Airbags).

The Passenger Airbag Off indicator displays on the touchscreen when the passenger front airbag is OFF. When the passenger front airbag is OFF, it does not inflate when a collision occurs. This indicator does not display when the seat is unoccupied.

To protect an adult occupying the front passenger seat, always double-check the passenger front airbag to confirm that it is ON.
