I'm thinking of trading up to a 2016 hybrid.

Where are the batteries in this model? Do you lose any storage space because of them?

I'm going to miss that huge well in the 2012, but I want to see what the batteries take away.

Thanks.

The traction battery is under the rear seat so you lose the under seat storage. The 12V battery is in under the rear deck along with the compact spare tire, there's not much room for storage there any more, far less than the 4.3 and less than the gas 4.4. Coming from a 2006 V6 4.3 to the 2015 Limited was a big reduction in storage space, not so much going to the Hybrid from the 2015 gas.
