Considering the weight balance between the axles, I believe it would be better to leave some batteries closer to the rear axle. Well, after all there would still be some space under the front hood to mount a secondary trunk, just like a Volkswagen Square-Back

Also, the weight balance is important to keep the steering lighter.
