Planning ahead for the dog crate for transporting our growing Pomsky (3/4 Husky) puppy. Wondering if anyone has the trunk dimensions. She will be going taken to work most days so will need a comfortable crate for the journey.

In addition to the thread hybrid2dev mentioned, I know there was another thread back the January timeframe in which the height of the rear opening was also shown.

It also helps that the floor is sunken a few inches. Even though we lose a ton of height from the low tailgate, there might still be enough for a large-ish dog crate. And as you say, you can always fold one of the rear seats down if needed (although it appears they may not fold completely flat and level with the rear cargo area, which could be a little awkward for a dog crate).

I think that the tabs on the floor behind the seats are to allow for the "sunken" floor to be raised and provide a level floor when seats are down. Of course, that means forfeiting a bit of sunken space for the level floor.

I would also worry about what the load capability is for the raised floor on the tabs. With a heavy crate and dog, the floor may be bending or bowing in the middle. So it may not be an option to raise it with heavy loads. Hopefully, we have an MME owners manual soon.

I've noticed that too (the tabs that appear to allow the floor to raise up flush with the tailgate opening). But I'm less sure about that meaning a flush and level transition to the folded-down seats. The few pictures I've seen show it not folding down fully flat. But maybe that was just an early prototype, or it wasn't pushed down all the way. My 2013 Escape, for instance, folds perfectly flat. I would hope the Mach-e would do the same, but with the battery pack in the floor between both axles, maybe that changes things.
