The fuel pump location is normal for an electric pump. Electric pumps work more efficiently when they push the fuel through the line as opposed to pulling it as a mechanical pump would. As for the battery in the trunk they usually are placed there to improve weight transfer and to transfer weight bias to the rear. Trunk mounted batteries should have provisions for venting to the atmosphere as they emit voloatile gasses and in most cases/states the trunk is an enclosed area.

Hope this helps,

John
