Right. I think so too. I would have liked a hatch, but it really looks like a notchback. If it's a hatch, it hinges in front of the rear passenger's heads, which means the seal would be positively enormous and you could slam the trunk on the heads of your rear passengers... or smash their fingers in the hinge or in the seal above their doors. It has to be a normal trunk, I think.You can see that the trunk doesn't include the glass, like regular sedans
It's hard to tell from the angle on some of the pictures but it looks like there's a lot of glass in the way if it's just a regular trunk. Some cars are like that though but it's going to make it hard to get anything boxy in. The trunk top after the bottom of the glass looks very short.Looks like a trunk not a lift gate, the the rear looks the same as the model S, but the glass stays put.

Okay, the glass does not lift. It's a trunk. Sorry for the bad news..
Ouch. That looks like a somewhat impractical trunk. The glass hanging down is going to obstruct attempts to put things in the trunk. Also puts the glass in a rather fragile position with the trunk open -- someone's gonna break it as they attempt to shove a large solid object into the trunk and *wham* it's too tall and strikes the glass...
Anyway, this does give another reason for people to buy the S rather than the 3. (I use that hatchback routinely.)
I belive this should answer your question. Start at 3:24.
Will the back seat fold flat?
I need to put (to lay on horizontally) at least one, best would be two, bicycles in the trunk, after removing the front wheel.
If you have a hatchback, a station wagon, or an SUV type of car, it is very easy to do so.
Note: I also use a roof rack, or a some kind of trunk-mounted bike rack, if I have some extra passengers,
but I cannot park and leave my car in the street, or enter in a garage to do shopping, then.
However, using a typical sedan, with a folding back seat, putting a bicycle in the trunk is very painful.
And trying to put two bicycles is almost impossible.
May be I should then keep my Tesla 3 deposit and transfer it to reserve a Tesla Y?
