12 Things You May Not Have Known About the Tesla Model S

2 of 13

The Model S Is a Hatchback With a Front Trunk (Frunk)

Tesla calls the Model S a sedan, but it’s really a giant hatchback with enough for kids to sit backwards in an optional third-row jump seat. It has a trunk, too, but it’s in the front. Tesla calls it a “frunk.” In rear-wheel drive models, the frunk is nearly as big as the trunk in some small sedans. That size is slightly cut down in all-wheel drive models.

Like other hatchbacks, the back seat of the Model S folds down in 60/40 sections, creating a huge flat floor so you can bring home awkward items, like that rocking chair from the antique store. Even with the back seat raised up, there’s more room under the hatch than in many SUVs.
