The inverter takes low volts/high amps and converts it to high volts/low amps. Transmitting power at low amperage is easy. Transmitting 12v and 20A 6 feet to the passenger compartment requires big heavy cable. Putting the inverter near the battery means you only need a couple feet of heavy cable and then a cheap $5 extension cord to the passenger compartment.
