    I noticed today while looking at pictures of the model 3 interior that they decided to ditch the middle back seat headrest. Im curious as to why tesla did this other than the obvious line of sight issue. I would have liked them to keep it like the model S as its much safer for a passenger and reduces their risk of whiplash. Tesla tries to make the safest cars but removes this feature...just seems counterproductive to me. What do you guys think?

    I'm guessing that the top part of the center section rises as a headrest.

    Yes, this is confirmed. I suspect we'll see this type in the Model S eventually as well

    @TrevP , while on the topic of headrests, and the front headrests power controlled like the new X and S seats, or manually adjustable? Tesla says 12 way power seats.
