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.

you have less space in the trunk and if the battery leaks it will do damage to carpet or you belongings

You do not need to worry about the carpet in your trunk. As I'm sure anyone who owns a newer charger knows.
