I didn't know we were being so serious as the poll is "What do YOU think is hiding in the backseat?" so I took it as having a little fun. If I had to bet I agree it will be very basic backseat, but Tesla could be hiding something else. For fun I said reclining seats because the Ram 1500 truck has a basic/simple reclining rear seat. See video below.

The model Y has reclining seats

With the vehicle launching soon, and demand basically unsatiable, and with most of the info already out there, I find it odd the secrecy about the back seat. They've made a conscious effort to not allow pics of it, despite allowing people access to the front. There must be a reason, either good or bad. It could be bad in that it isn't as big as a Ford, and photos may prompt another not-so-subtle dig from Jim Farley as he did Aug 10 soon after photos of the CT Frunk leaked:



Interestingly those tweets made me realize how functionally narrow the Lightning frunk is compared to the CT, and the overall size may not be all that different.

Anyway, back on topic, hiding the back seat is more likely for a good reason, specifically to hide a feature as long as possible such that vehicles like the next-gen Ford truck can't copy it, or in the very least to generate some extra hype when the final production car is finally revealed. We can be pretty certain it's not a midgate with the cabin frames we've seen. Other possibilities could be:

-Rear screen present/not present.
-Opening rear window.
-Rear seats that are better, more spacious than expected from a full sized truck.
-Pass through using the two cutouts in the rear bulkhead for long items.
-Some type of trick folding seats that could be used for storage, sleeping or some other unique use.
-A dimming glass roof tech.
-A sixth seat option that is obviously possible when you sit in the rear and look at the console.
-Some combo of all of the above.

Obviously there is no reason to get animal rights people involved when you are testing 0-60 while in dog mode. Hence the tinted windows for back.

Anatomically correct Barbie sized doll waiting to nag at anyone who bought the CT and didn't need the CT.
It’s been a while but last I checked, anatomically correct for a Barbie was a mouth that did not open. I have experienced nagging via eye glare. But otherwise nagging from a Barbie would be pretty easy to ignore.

I know you're joking but I do actually think there is possibly a little recline to them.
Ya was definitely sarcasm, but my idea is kinda growing on me. 😉And I do look forward to seeing what the cab entails as I would use it heavily.

CONFIRMED: There's nothing weird about the back seat

It's all coincidence. In all the up-close sightings, no one has thought to get back seat images.

There was one time when Franz was protecting the back seat from view, but his kids were back there, and maybe his dirty laundry or something lol. There's no conspiracy. #backseatgate #qanon

Nothing. usually truck backseats are very simple and seeing how simple the rest of the truck ended up i think the backseat will be very simple. I think the reason they are hiding it so much is that the headroom is going to be a joke. I think the average mans head will be 2" from the ceiling.
I think the Cybertruck took 2 design ques from the Honda Ridgeline(which I purchased after I reserved my Cybertruck), to see how I liked owning & using the Ridgeline.
Those 2 design cues were:
1. Split and fold up back seats.
2. Trunk in the trunk bed

I will be removing the back seats and installing a bed, with space underneth it for a spare tire and beer. There is not enough sleeping (and storage) space in the Cyberlandr for two adults. The wife can sleep in the truck.
