Tesla Model 3 Trunk Opening Prior To Any Known Adjustments

Tesla Model 3 Trunk Opening Prior To Any Known Adjustments

One major complaint revealed at the initial unveiling of the Tesla Model 3 was in regards to the lack of adequate trunk space, or more specifically, the small opening.

Those that were able to see the car up close commented that the trunk was lacking, and suggestions were given for a hatchback style similar to that of the Model S.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk used Twitter to explain the situation to consumers. He made it clear that the smaller, traditional trunk opening and lack of space was due to an attempt to assure more rear headroom.

He also noted that the rear seats will have a fold down option to make room for bigger items. At this point, it seemed that changes to the Model 3 trunk were not a priority.

Later, Musk announced that initial plans had changed and that Tesla was, in fact, looking into options to increase the size of the trunk opening.

Some pictures of a Model 3 prototype have surfaced and the trunk seems unchanged, however, Musk confirmed once again on Twitter that the final production vehicle will have a larger trunk opening. No official details have been publicized.
