Agreed. Would love AC in the frunk. At a minimum DC 12V. Going to be a major letdown if no way to run coolers or accessories up front.
There's a light in there. That would be 12V, but you'd have time keep the trunk switch open so that it runs when the frunk is closed. The 12V battery is right behind frunk backwash though, so nothing a small hole and cable can't fix.

Were you able to figure out what that polygon shape thingis in the near corner? Mounting hardware? Not complaining (much) but there's a lot to see under the hood that could have been shown in more detail.
That looks like a pretty standard adjustable bump stop for the frunk lid.

It could be bigger for sure, but how many family members to you grocery shop for? It's the width of the truck so I'd say at least 4.5' wide by 1.x' deep x 2.x' tall....ok, maybe not a Costco run....
And keep in mind that it is not a rectangle. More like a triangle. See the 4 yellow arrows (1 being on the 'ceiling').

Rivian recently got rid of their 12Vs that were in the frunk and under the center dash due to "minimal usage by their owners" (per Rivian)🤷‍♂️
Yeah, I have exactly THREE tools in my shop that use 220. The table saw (had to reconfigure it), the dust collector, and the spindle on my CNC.

all of them are BIG and STATIONARY..... they don't leave the shop.

What job site tools use 220? A welder?

Welders, Rotary hammer, jack hammer, pump and chop saws are items we’ve used 220v for.

But is there a 12v battery?

I don't want 220v AC welding, I want 800v DC welding! Give me a stinger lead off the positive terminal of the HighVoltage battery, "ground" the negative to the chassis so I don't even have to clip my workpiece to complete the circuit!!!

The lithium low voltage battery in our Model Y means the "12V" outlets actually supply 16V. Made for a very unpleasant day of driving 90 minutes to our fave paddle boarding spot only to find that the pump that worked fine in our 2021 Model Y did NOT work in our fancy new 2023. If they now go to 48V, then they would need a dedicated accessory bus with deliberate voltage stepdown. Maybe they'll do that, maybe they won't.

Why did they clip it before it shut?

Misalignment? Panel gaps? Loud thud? Lol

no power outlets in Frunk

220v is elsewhere

This paper appears to be legal 8.5x14

puts Frunk void height at ~16” and depth at floor centerline at 18”

Puts CT Frunk volume at roughly the following footprint, but a ~bit more dramatic height slope forward from the max height at back wall:

or as gone over (to death) before:

about 1/2 to 3/5th the volume of a Lightning Frunk, but the preferred usability of either depending on the need (eg since the shapes are different, they’ll fit different things differently)

IMO, the frunk is disappointingly small for such a massive vehicle. I feel like this wouldn't even fit a full load of groceries.
It's the result of shortening the front end for the "it must fit in my garage" crowd.

The stubbier front end is noticeable in the concept vs. production pic. The front end overhand is almost gone now. From a styling standpoint I think it looks better than the concept.
