Jeff, if the under-hood terminals can be used for boosting,
can we assume they can be used for charging as well?

I think you should be able to.

I seem to have found the location of the battery location on this cutaway image

Let's hope that AHM didn't source the 12V battery from the same vendor sourced the LiON batteries for the 787. ;-)

Looks like a PITA to service/replace that thing.

Does it make the front center console shallow?

I wish I would have noticed this when I had the engineers around so I could simply ask "why"?

Curious they didn't put it in the rear trunk, in the spare tire well that's open because there's no spare. Either way, it must help weight distribution to not have the battery over the front wheels....BMWs have had their batteries in the rear for decades to provide better balance.
