Frunk Offerings [Updated 4/11/2019]
While the EQC doesn't have a frunk, or front trunk, despite not having a big internal combustion engine under the hood, the Audi e-tron quattro does. However, we will admit that it's a small one by comparison to its rivals from Tesla, only about the size of a big suitcase. And I think they want to sell you bespoke luggage for that!
No one buys a supercar for its practicality, and the R8 doesn't buck the segment trend by offering massive cargo capacity. In our testing, the R8 provided space for just one of our carry-on suitcases, so pack light.
Faraday Future FF91 / Lucid Air
Both companies speak of their Tesla-like frunks up front and ultra-long ranges (378 miles from the 91's 130-kW-hr pack; Lucid's base 100-kW-hr battery is expected to reach 300 miles, and its larger battery should equal Faraday's claims).
The frunk offers a token 0.95 cubic feet that's probably big enough to store a large house cat (not attempted, not recommended).
Front luggage compartment
NOTE: The luggage compartment will only open if the vehicle is stationary and neutral is selected. A message will display on the instrument cluster if the luggage compartment is open when pulling away.
NOTE: When the luggage compartment is unlatched or open, gear selection will be inhibited. Press and hold D or R for 5 seconds to override this and select a gear if there is a need to maneuver the vehicle. WARNING: Only maneuver the vehicle at low speed if the luggage compartment is open or unlatched as the drivers’ view may become obscured.
Throw in the 720S’ roomy “frunk”, offering 13 cubic feet of storage space, and you’ve got a fully capable weekend getaway car. One that happens to be among the quickest and fastest street-legal cars ever produced.
WHAT WE LIKE: We like very nearly everything about this car. Of special note are the thrilling exhaust; the perfectly weighted shifter action; the telepathic steering response; and the remarkable cargo space, split between the front and rear trunks.
And we accumulated miles quickly thanks to the Cayman S’s surprisingly practical two-trunk scheme.
Spotted at a CCS charging station in Germany by @ZoePionierin, the first tweet includes a pair of photos, one of which shows what are presumably a pair of Porsche engineers inspecting something under the hood. That photo gives us a decent look at the Taycan's frunk, the presence of which should make the Porsche purists happy.
