Battery location......?

To some New ZL1 owners out there and the community this maybe a stupid question. Being a new ZL1 pilot i dont see it that way.
I've looked in the owners manual and even in the engine compartment and i still cant find the battery in this thing.

In the trunk. Pull up the carpet and you'll see the cover for it.

Does the Bold 3 digits in the VIN field represent my build number? On this sheet.

With the coupe, the back seat folds down giving access to the trunk, in the Vert there is a key operated release between the side of the rear seat on the drivers side and the side panel.
Under the hood are remote terminals connected to the battery.

Can you charge the batteries with the remote terminals?

Thx but I think climbing through the back seat to pull the trunk open isnt exactly easy access.

If they insisted on putting it in the trunk they could of put a lock on the trunck, they could of put it in a hideaway location.

Agreed if you whited out the beginning of the VIN. It should start with something like 2G1FS

On the C6's you can plug a charger into the accessory lighter plug and keep the battery charged. But the ZL1 doesnt do this?
