Or wait for Model Y.
I'm happy with it. I usually don't have a lot of junk in my trunk....nor my frunk.
My 2008 Mazda 3 has 11.5 cubic feet in the trunk, and the only time it's ever been an issue is when I'm driving my friends to/from the airport, with 3 adults and their luggage all going it can be a tight fit (but have never had to do more than have backpacks / bags in laps, have always fit everything).
For myself and my wife, I don't foresee any problems. As long as it can eventually fit a stroller if we have a kid, we'll make it work.
Well this is disappointing. Our old 2000 Olds Alero, which was classified as a compact sedan, is 1.9" longer and has 14.6 cuft. of cargo space in the trunk. (I did realize that the Alero was one of the largest compact sedans.)
I still think I can make a Model 3 work, but I'm surprised by the specs so far.

CT6 PHEV Battery
I was waiting for this (since that's what all the hatchback fans were told).
My prius has 16cft, but the M3 is not a hatchback, and looks a lot sleaker, I'm OK with 13cft.
No question but I would say that this box is about what fit on my Soul Trunk.
My current 2008 IS350 is rated at 13 cubic feet. In utility though it's horrible because the rear seats don't fold down, and the wheel well eats into the trunk. My personal need is for the trunk on a model 3 to fit 2 large suitcases.
What are you guys carrying?
Any additional weight will interfere with Ludicrous Mode. Won't it?
a 9, 40, and 45...oh and a little 22 for fun.
Oh my... I wouldn't recommend Ludicrous mode for you...for obvious reasons.
Wait, where are people seeing 13? The released information says 14.
Compare Model S and Model 3 | Tesla
Buy a van...you maybe in front of me in the reservation line so go ahead buy that van....
A better question to ask is could they have made the trunk bigger without trade offs somewhere else?
Looking like a box on wheels is not an acceptable trade off for me.
An old 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan that gets 1000 miles per year is a much better goods hauler than the 3 or X ever will be for 1/14th the price of an X.
There is no electric van yet.
As long as it can tow and the option is reasonably priced, I'm OK with what Tesla has so far.
The 13cft on my Lexus IS is fine for 98% of the time and the seats don't fold. The M3 is a upgrade for me.
Since the AWD is delayed I am skipping that option and buying a used SUV. That gives me a backup vehicle, more space, towing, rural travel and 4 wheel drive.
I think you will be impressed by the leg room, because it appears that Tesla chose passenger comfort over cargo space. My Jetta Wagon was the opposite, lots of space for cargo, but passengers were crammed in. Keep in mind that passenger space can also be cargo space, unless your car is full of passengers. Overall, the Model 3 is longer and wider than most cars in its class, so I think in totality it will have ample room.
