Tesla’s most popular model right now is the Model 3, but many people are concerned about the dimensions of this model and whether they will allow luggage of any size to be placed there.

Below you can find detailed information about the Model 3 trunk.

Description of Tesla Model 3 trunk 

Let’s start by discussing what the Model 3 trunk is all about. Even though there are three different types of Model 3, Performance, RWD, and Long Range AWD. However, the space is the same in them.  

The front trunk has a capacity of 88 liters, while the rear trunk has a fairly deep capacity, namely 561 liters. In general, the entire interior of the Model 3 car can fit 649 liters, which is a suitable place for 5 passengers and luggage. 

Seats folded 

Tesla claims that you can increase the space if you will make the rear seats folded. Since the rear seats are connected to the rear luggage boot, they do take up the space of a potential trunk. One of the big advantages of seats folded is of course the fact that you increase the space for your things, for example, if you travel by car.

Also, a huge plus is that you can increase your flat space and use the folded seats as a place to sleep. Now you can even order special mattresses that make your stay even more pleasant.

How to open the trunk of the Tesla Model 3? 

Tesla car is a vehicle that not only differs in basic characteristics as a resource, using, electricity instead of fuel, but also the control of the front and rear parts of Tesla is almost entirely digital. You can try to open the trunk while inside the Tesla using the touch screen.

However, if that doesn’t work, you can use the key fob that comes with the Tesla keys. A unique way is to use the mobile app if you have connected your car to it in advance, or try to open it manually, but the key must be near you so that the vehicle can recognize it and give you access to the trunk.

Differences between Model 3 and Model S, X and Y 

One very important point in sizing luggage trunks is understanding how the width and depth of the trunk of the Tesla Model 3 differ from other models. Below you can see the information that Tesla claims are guaranteed.

Overall Tesla model 3 description 

After we have discussed the entire trunk of the Tesla car 3, it is worth paying attention to other characteristics as well.


Towing is possible in the Tesla 3 thanks to the company adding a rear hitch that is suitable for towing items up to 900 kilograms.

This is a good indicator not only among electric cars but also among vehicles.

Leg room, passenger space, and head room 

As stated earlier, the Tesla 3 can guarantee a safe and comfortable ride for up to four people.

Passenger or rear space, driver space, leg room, and headroom provide enough space and cargo volume for total comfort.

Boot space 

The rear boot space holds about 561 liters, which is quite suitable for large stuff, such as suitcases or just large bags.

The front boot space can easily accommodate handbags or backpacks, but you shouldn’t put suitcases there, as they simply won’t fit inside.

Cargo space 

Overall, the cargo space of the Tesla 3 is about 22.9 cubic feet, including both front trunk space and rear trunk space.

However, if you fold down the seats, you can increase the cargo space of your Tesla 3 car to 43 cubic feet.


How large is Tesla Model 3 trunk?

The trunk of the Tesla 3 can hold 649 liters or 22.9 cubic feet, with the seats folded down, this figure increases by one and a half times. This trunk size is quite suitable for a large number of things, some of which, like suitcases, can be put in the back, and bags in the front.

What size box can fit in a Model 3?

The Tesla Model 3 can perfectly fit a 4×4 feet box inside. However, if you move the seats, of course, this figure will increase, it also depends on whether other bags inside the vehicle can reduce the space.


Electric cars began a very strong development earlier they were small cars for two or one that was powered by electricity, now electric vehicles, for example from Tesla, can accommodate not only a fairly large number of passengers (from 4 to 7) but also their bags.

I have been fond of cars since childhood. I have always been interested in knowing the principle of their work, as well as the structure. Therefore, I liked to help my father dismantle cars and fix them. Then I went to college with a degree in mechanical engineering. After all, I decided to connect my life with cars.
