Over the past few years, Tesla has solidified its reputation as a trailblazer in the world of electric vehicles. The company’s EVs are praised not only for their environmental friendliness but also for their futuristic design.
That said, one of the less talked about features of Teslas is trunk space. Generally, the size of your car’s trunk determines how much luggage you can carry. And depending on how many passengers you are traveling with, different cars will give you varying amounts of cargo space when you fold down the rear seats.
In this post, you will learn about Tesla trunk space so you can make a more informed choice when buying your EV.
Comparing The Trunk Spaces of Each Tesla Model
As you might already know, the Tesla fleet comprises several different models that not only differ in body style and features but also in size. This means their trunk sizes are inherently different.
Here is a breakdown of the trunk space of each Tesla model:
Tesla Model 3 Trunk Space
This all-electric sedan-styled luxury car is the smallest out of the entire Tesla lineup, which means its trunk space is fairly limited.
In addition to the normal cargo space at the back, the car also has a front trunk, which gives you a total cargo space of 15 cubic feet.
When the rear seats are folded, you will have access to 8 cubic feet of space, bringing the total trunk space to 23 cubic feet.
Tesla Model S Trunk Space
The Tesla Model S is a more luxurious version of the Model 3 and is built for speed and range. It is also slightly larger in size compared to the Model 3, which means it offers significantly more trunk space.
Just like the Model 3, the Tesla Model Y comes with a front trunk that has a capacity of 3.1 cubic feet. It also provides a further 28.2 cubic feet of trunk space behind the seats. When the second-row seats are folded, you will get a total of 64.6 cubic feet of cargo space.
Tesla Model Y Trunk Space
The Model Y Tesla is a mid-sized SUV that boasts an impressive driving range and a roomy and luxurious interior. Unlike most SUVs, which have a hatchback design, the Model Y has a sedan-styled body that not only makes it stand out but also factors into its trunk space.
The Model Y comes in 5-seater and 7-seater versions. The 5-seater model has both a front and back cargo area, with the front trunk offering a capacity of 4.1 cubic feet and the main trunk offering about 30.2 cubic feet of space. With both the second and third-row seats folded, the Model Y offers a total trunk space of 76.2 cubic feet.
The 7-seater version of the Model Y has a front trunk capacity of 4.1 cubic feet and 12.8 cubic feet in the back trunk. When both the second and third-row seats are folded, you will get access to a total cargo space of 72 cubic feet.
Tesla Model X Trunk Space
The Tesla Model X is one of the most luxurious SUVs in the EV market today. It not only offers a roomy cabin area and an impressive range for its size but also provides a smooth drive and a generous trunk space.
The Model X comes in 5-seater, 6-seater, and 7-seater configurations. The 5-seater version has a cargo space of 6.5 cubic feet under the hood and a further 37.5 cubic feet behind the second row of seats. With the second row of seats folded, this model provides a total of 91.6 cubic feet of cargo space.
The 6-seater version, on the other hand, has 6.5 cubic feet in the front trunk and 15 cubic feet behind the third row of seats. Its total cargo space when the second and third rows of seats are folded is 92.3 cubic feet.
With the 7-seater Model X, you also get 6.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the front trunk and 15 cubic feet of back trunk space. However, the total cargo space available when the second and third rows are folded is 88.2 cubic feet.
Getting a Tesla is a significant investment when you consider how expensive these cars are.
For this reason, it is important to think beyond the luxury and style aspect and consider functionality and convenience when thinking of buying one.
Fortunately, all Tesla cars come with a generous trunk space which should easily suit your needs whether you are moving some items or going on a trip with your family.
