Could have been, but they needed a place for the drive train, battery, suspension, etc. With the large cabin, storage area for tonneau cover, and vault there’s really no where else to put anything.

They should have put solar panels down there, like the Aptera.Sad the useless CT Dash is as big as the whole front of the Model Y
Could have been Frunk space.
