It’s still early days in the race for electric vehicle supremacy, and while auto engineers have rushed to improve driving ranges and charging speeds, they remain split on the front trunk.
Roughly one-third of the 30 or so EV models for sale in the U.S. have supersized the feature in recognition of its novelty and utility -- after all, a “frunk” is one of few things EVs offer that a gasoline-powered vehicle cannot.
Another third of models, however, skip the frunk altogether, freeing up cabin space on a bet that customers accustomed to frunkless living will not demand one when they go electric.
Those that do offer novel uses such as Ford, which suggests filling their refrigerator-sized front trunk, that comes standard on two of its EVs, with seafood (see below) or even 1,000 chicken wings. The frunks even come with a useful drain to help transport food items.
