After reading all the posts in this thread the biggest problem I see is people still can't get past the point that a Model 3 isn't going to be a hatchback. At this point it's too late to quote statistics about whether hatchbacks are preferred more over a hatchback. It doesn't matter, it is now irrelevant. If you want a hatchback wait 2-3 years for the Model Y but it probably won't be $36k just like the X is more than the S. The other thing to remember the Model 3 is officially a compact sedan. Compact sedans are not know for having huge trunks. It will probably be slightly bigger than in a compact ICE Sedan. You will also have a Frunk but it will be smaller than the Model S. From what I have seen a compact sedan is for transporting passengers with cargo being secondary. Whereas in a hatchback the cargo probably has equal importance to the passengers. If you think you are going to fit luggage for five people going away on a long trip you are probably out of look.
