Looks like they could have moved the inverter under the floor in front of the rear motor instead of taking up what could be a handy frunk.
And put the charge point in the rear, like in the CrossTrek PHEV.

I suspect it has something to do with Toyota offering an FWD version (and Subaru too, in Japan).

But I get shortening the front end to maximize interior space.

Agree with that, but I'm guessing (as a total non-engineer) that they designed it for passenger safety. Let the inverter and other hardware absorb front-end crash energy. Less damage to the driver/passenger in exchange for sacrificing whatever car stuff is "under the hood".
