14 Aug Tesla Model 3 luggage capacity comparison

Aug 14, 2017 | by Iqtidar Ali

This post is about how Tesla Model 3 compares to several other sedans and EVs in terms of luggage capacity. The thing to remember here is that Model 3 being an electric car has no engine under the hood that creates an extra storage area called the ‘frunk’ since the EV era.

Model 3 is a mid-sized sedan but the absence of an engine gives it more edge over the competing ICE sedans of the same class — let’s see in below table how the storage space in the front and rear combined stands against the competition.

Cargo area dimensions are measured in ft³ (cubic-feet) the unit used to compare values in the data table below.
