    It is quite large with this whole extra volume. I got some shots without the liner.

    Thanks for pic. Now we know what the jumpseats and the frunk look like. This car can't be produced soon enough!

    That liner really eats up half the volume it looks like, anyone know if that liner is standard? I'd kind of like the big version, as I can use the frunk for all the liquids like washer fluid and stuff like that.

    Can we call it a froot?

    Those hinges look like finger traps...

    I kind of like that, but it might be too late.

    One of the Tesla employees said they called it a frunk too but not sure if that'll be on their webpage=)

    It's quite sizable. Does any have an idea on the total volume of the front trunk area?

    Thanks for posting the photos and dimensions. Looking at both the Frunk and Trunk, many are going to wonder what powers the vehicle. :cool:

    Thanks for that pic, WhiteKnight! I'm amazed how far that cargo-netted area recesses into the cabin. That is another benefit of an EV, no transmission tunnel and firewall that are present on ICE-powered vehicles.

    Since the recessed areas in the plastic (by the fenders) appear to be solid (that is, not lids) where does the windshield washer fluid go? :tongue: Just wondering, is the hood lined in a similar fashion to the froot? (frunk?)

    If you look at my photos above (click on them for larger versions) you can see a blue lid bottle on the driver's side corner near the windshield.

    In WhiteKnight's photo, the plastic panel nearest the windshield looks removable. Under that vented section is a 12V lead acid battery.

    Ah, thanks Doug. Those pictures with the froot/frunk unlined make it a lot clearer!
