It's great that there is a light in the frunk. What is white square just below it? AC-power?

That's the emergency button to open the trunk if you were trapped inside.

Thanks. They really need to put power in there...
Well, it's designed to be hosed out or filled with ice.... electricity and water are not a great combo. So I wouldn't expect to see any power outlets in there.

By the same logic, the light shouldn't be in there either.

But that is sealed up, just like the lights you would see in a swimming pool. Same for the switch too, it's all sealed and waterproof. It not something where a metal connection will come in contact with water like a socket.

Rather than arguing with me pointlessly, please know I have experience with marine electronics.

Yes placement is something to be considered, but having power in the front trunk is basic - and stock parts already exist.

The potential for waste heat dissipation is really the only limitation.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. 🤔

It should be a possible after market mod.... although heat would be a significant risk for enclosed space....

Not arguing, just saying this isn't the best plan.

Why bother? You are graphically suggesting that Ford is designing Mach-E be Redneck-Proof. Most of the world has higher requirements.

Agreed. Americans can be dumb and litigious. This is why we have labels on hairdryers advising us not use them in the bathtub.
