This car really need a HATCH

Do we need one, or not...to me this tiny narrow "thing", is so old ICE looking.

And how is that trunk opening any different from similar cars that size?

Jordan: Many similar cars that size have a hatchback....

I need a trunk AND a hatch. Trunk in the front, Hatch in the back. Two trunks are redundant.

Yes, this is the one big disappointment I have with the car, so far. For now, I assume that it still could change between now and when manufacturing begins. And maybe, if I get a chance to see the actual car in person, before ordering, I'll decide it's not a problem after all. But I really was hoping for a hatch.

Being an owner that has a dog in the car most of the time, the hatch is a huge plus. Others take their dogs in sedans, but the poor dog is standing on the back seat perpendicular to the line of travel...not ideal. Plus it's necessary to have a covering over the seats all the time or risk damage from the dog's toe nails....not as attractive as a folded seat.

I've got no problem with no hatch, they will probably follow up with a CUV with a hatch. Looking at pictures closely, it looks like the 'hat shelf' is segmented in such a way that half of it will slide back, which may allow the pup to sit back there anyway, with his head popping out of the back. Right now, I allow the dog to ride in the back seat of my P85D, he really likes that Napa leather a lot. I think the model 3 will work out for him as well.

+1 @cephellow Phase II Test drive videos also mentioned a base model option steel roof ...

Not sure how they'd do a hatch with the glass that goes all the way to the back. You'd need a seem in the glass.

They will offer a Crossover for those who want a hatchback.
