Am I seeing this right, a conventional lead acid battery that can vent into the passenger compartment?

 There is a vent line........I'm assuming it runs outside of the car as you do not remove it with the battery when you remove it.

I have never been able to located either documentation or physical vent to the outside for either the 12V battery or HVB.

That's a nice change instead of being buried in the back with the traction battery.

Are you sure that's the battery?  I thought it was there on my 2014 but it turned out to be a positive terminal on top of a black box that holds fuses.

Based on what I'm seeing in the 2017 manual it is the same as prior years. Just a jump point under the hood and the battery is still in the rear.

That's correct. The dealer told me it was under the hood and showed me the terminals but the battery is still in the rear.
