One of the niftiest things about the Tesla Model S is its ability to carry up to seven passengers with the optional rear-facing third row of seats. But a subset of the large luxury sedan market caters to VIP back-seaters—folks who demand a roomy place to work or relax while a driver ferries them between appointments.

For these discerning passengers, Tesla Motors has added an Executive seating option that deletes the second-row middle seat in order to better coddle two outboard passengers.

Quietly rolled out at this year's Detroit auto show, the Executive Rear Seat option turns the second-row bench into two leather-wrapped buckets with a more bolstering and padding. The center seat is replaced with a center console featuring all-important cupholders and a storage cubby for the back-seat CEOs, who get treated to two-zone seat heaters and the ability to fiddle with the car's media, climate, and panoramic-sunroof settings through the Tesla app.

Unlike similar rear-seat-enhancement packages from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Jaguar, the Executive-equipped Model S doesn't feature a lengthened wheelbase for extra rear legroom, although we've never found space to be lacking in the Elon Musk's electric sedan.

Entry into the Executive class requires your Model S to be built with the $3500 Premium Interior Package featuring extended nappa leather and LED accent lighting, as well as the $750 Subzero Weather Package, which adds heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and defrosters for the windshield wipers and washer nozzles. Thusly equipped for $4250, you'll spend an additional $2000 for the executive seating arrangement itself.

Unfortunately, your junior-level account specialists will have to hail an Uber: The rear-facing kiddie jump seats can't be installed on an Executive-equipped Model S.
