No. The battery takes up almost all the trunk space. I can put a laptop bag and two bags of groceries in the trunk, if I squish them.
I find this characterization really unfair and misleading. You can get way more
than "two bags of groceries and a laptop bag" in the cargo area. Sheesh.
And, it isn't really a "trunk" per se -- I consider the cargo area the entire "hatchback" portion of the car, and it can all be easily utilized depending on the task.
I suppose it is a matter of opinion, but the cargo space in the FFE is most definitely "decent", in spite of the battery.
First, there quite a bit of room on top of the "cargo organizer" for two medium-sized suitcases or carry-on bags (in addition
to the two bags of groceries, and more, underneath inside the cargo organizer). You can also prop the top of the cargo organizer flat (with the built-in "legs" for this purpose) so you don't have to "squish" things.
Second, if you remove the "privacy" screen, things get more roomy. You could probably stack at least another carry-on on top of the two already on top of the organizer, plus other items around the sides. (Yes, this would probably obstruct the view out the rear window, but the room is there.)
For even more room, you can also remove the cargo organizer entirely and probably fit more like 5 or 6 bags of (non-squished) groceries in the "well" that is left. The photo in jmueller065's post above shows this well area with the cargo organizer removed (propane tank not included).
Finally, you can also fold the rear seats down. The battery hump isn't going anywhere, but depending on the shape of your cargo, there is a lot
of usable room in this configuration. I've made trips to IKEA for non-trivial items this way. You could even get a bike in there (front wheel detached), maybe two.
