Electric car makers used to have a problem putting the boot in. Batteries and electronics are big, and sometimes they had no choice but to put them where luggage space would be in a petrol or diesel car. But now many electric cars have been designed from the ground up to accommodate the hardware and to make the most of not needing an engine. As a result, they are actually more spacious than a conventional car.
So, we’ve pulled together an electric load luggers’ guide, to find out just how accommodating for your gear some well-known electric cars are - including some cars you’ve suggested. With new models arriving all the time, our luggage list can never be completely definitive, but we hope it will save you reaching for the tape measure.
By the way, our bootiful rankings use the capacity figures taken with the back seats up, and as we reveal, some of our choices do rather better when they’re folded down.
