One of the best things about not having an internal combustion engine is that it allows for a lot more room, both inside as well as outside the car.
For example, you not get more space for front and rear-seat occupants, but you also get a frunk (front trunk) right where the engine bay would be. While the frunk won’t do much to help you pack for a long holiday, it still offers decent storage capacity on certain EVs, such as the Tesla Model 3.
Now, if you’re a parent, you definitely know how difficult it can be to change your baby in the back seat of a car. Because child seats are mandatory (as they should be), you’re left with just one side of the rear seat that’s free, so you often need to get out and bend over considerably in order to perform the diaper change – unless you’re in a very spacious vehicle like a full-size SUV.
Also, changing a diaper should be done with the baby laying down on as flat a surface as possible, so it’s best that you don’t try to wing it and change your infant/toddler while also holding them in your arms.
While pretty much everybody had their own funny remark to make regarding this image sourced from the Tesla sub-reddit, all we can think of is how clever that woman was to use the funk. It provides her with a level surface, plenty of room to maneuver and she doesn’t need to bend over any more than she already did.
When it’s not busy housing a baby, the Model 3’s frunk can reportedly take in an airline carry-on bag, which is a pretty good achievement by Tesla.
