I took the BMW i8 to church and my daughter wanted to show it off to her friends. My husband thinks of it as a two seater only. So when all three of us wanted to go somewhere, she had to convince him that she could fit (13yr) She said, "The kids from church got in the back seat." Just curious.

The back seat really doesn't offer an abundance leg room, and if the driver is tall they will have the seat back far enough where the rear passenger may have difficulty fitting their legs in, but in most cases you can certainly have rear seat passengers back there, especially if they are not large adults.
I have a pair of Newfies that alternate lying down across the seat...obviously not satisfactory for any distance. But we get "clowns in the VW" admiration at the vets or whereever we all go together.
And by the way the $200 i3 cargo/seat cover ("It's a picnic blanket too!!") is junk. The belts ripped off the front seat headrests on its first use. This is unacceptable, especailly compared to the 5 series rear seat pet cover that lasted through TWO 5s/10 years/2 Newfies.
Yes, I have taken my high school children to school many times. We just have to negotiate the seat position between the two of them so they each of leg room. It helped to place the backpack of the rear passenger in the trunk space. Climbing out of the back along with the backpack was difficult.
