As I stare at the molded Styrofoam trunk insert, it becomes apparent that the additional unused cut outs have very specific purposes. On the right there is a space clearly meant for a scissor jack. On the left there appears to be a dedicated spot for one or more roughly square shaped objects. Also, underneath the inflation kit, there is another odd shaped cutout to the right of the tow hook.

Two questions: 1) which GM models have a jack that would snug right into the space on the left? 2) what is supposed to fill those other spots in the foam?

FYI - the picture is posted upside down, so left is right.

There is a jack available for this model as a dealer accessory. That is probably what fits exactly in the jack compartment. Probably others jacks as well, but not sure which ones.

Not sure about the other spaces. The spot next to the tow hook might be for some sort of tool intended to open the access plug to where the tow hook would be installed. One possible use for the other spaces would be the EVSE, but I'm not sure if it is possible to fit it there. The Gen 1 had a spot there for its EVSE. Or maybe it is for a first aid kit, which I think is required in some European markets. I don't think this model is sold in Europe, but the space may have still been designed in anyway in case that were to change.

Europe requires a triangle type reflector and a first aid kit, and those are available from your dealer.

The long slot is for the reflective safety triangle. I bought one from from the accessories section of the Chevy website. Definitely a good thing to have, especially since road flares cannot be used in all places due to fire risk.
