Question type: General

There are a few reasons why automakers put the battery in the trunk: It creates more room under the hood, where it can be a tight fit for the increasing amount of necessary electronics and components. Also, it’s a way to create better weight distribution to increase handling performance, as the battery can weigh a good 40 to 60 pounds. Even though the battery is in the trunk, there are remote terminals under the hood that you use to jump-start the car if the battery conks out. If you have a trunk-mounted battery, always check your owner’s manual for the proper jump-starting procedure.
