    In North American English, we call the rear cargo area of a car, the "trunk." So, when Tesla came out with a front cargo area, the term "frunk" sort of made sense. I'm wondering what our British cousins are calling the front cargo area, seeing has how they call the rear area, the "boot." How about "froot?" :)

    Yeah. I think Froot wins. Hope nobody takes it pejoratively!

    well as the Model S and X have been out for years in the UK anyway and both have frunks I would assume the term is already in use.

    I wondered, Tesla isn't the first car maker that has trunks in the front. Thinking about most Porsches with the motor in the back.

    Do they call the trunks there still trunk?

    In Germany we have the lovely term of "Kofferraum", which translates to suitcase space. But afaik we call the Tesla frunk still frunk, as in short for "Vorderer Kofferraum" ;)

    (Anyone who replies with Vofferraum gets slapped around with a large trout.)
