    Has anyone tried to remove this part to see if we can get enough space to put a rolled up yoga mat in?

    You are in the Prius Prime subforum.

    Are you talking about the charging cord storage space in the trunk?

    there are 3 of 4 box like underbody pinned panels just in front of the lower bumper panel, altogether about 4 cubic feet, maybe. And the lower bumper is attached to the upper bumper with tabs of the lower fitting into sockets in the upper. It's hard to figure out how the OP might want to customize that area into storage space,
    although I suppose it could be done with a bit of ingenuity if someone wanted that extra space as storage.
