Times when an electric car is tight by definition Small car It should have been, fortunately far behind us. Manufacturers are increasingly unloading electric vehicles that, in terms of interior space, are not inferior to similar models in combustion – sometimes on the contrary. Below you’ll find seven pure electric cars with surprisingly large trunk sizes.
Citroen ë-Berlingo (and its ilk)
Saying “no trucks” and then driving away with an electric Citroen Berlingo? You can, because Berlingo and its brethren Stellantis fall under the category ludospaces. This means it’s designed primarily – literally – for open-minded families, so you can count on the comfort and ultimate quality of a regular passenger car. It combines like Ludospace Then preferably with a large area, which in itself is not surprising. What is surprising is exactly the amount of space. As standard, the ë-Berlingo already has 775 liters of space behind the second row of seats, but in its longer XL form, Citroën talks about 4,000 liters of luggage space with the rear seats folded. This is, for reference, easily twice the average for a large SUV.
Tesla Model X
Speaking of SUVs: My Father Among those electric has to be the Tesla Model X. We say this not only because it was one of the first luxury electric SUVs, but also because it remains one of the most spacious cars in its class. In fact, the numbers are so huge that we can hardly believe them. According to Tesla, for example, there is at least 2,593 liters of volume behind it. FalconDoors when the rear seats are folded. Even with the second row upright, the five-seat X should offer 1,050 liters of boot space. The smaller Y also does anything but bad, as it boasts 854 to 2041 liters of volume.
Do you prefer a low electric model? So it should be a space-seeker with the Mercedes EQS, because despite its status as the most streamlined production car of the moment, it still manages to impress under the parcel shelf. For example, you can store 610 liters of luggage in the EQS trunk, and it is increased to 1,770 liters with the rear seat down. This low-end sedan outperforms many large electric SUVs, such as the BMW iX (up to 1750 liters) and the Audi e-tron (up to 1725 liters). This is how you see: higher is not always better.
However, the top Mercedes models are not much inferior to the EQS, and this starts with the best discreetly compact EQB. This may be the second smallest SUV in the world Das House But what it leaves out in the outer dimensions it makes up for with its clever interior design. For example, you can not only get the EQB with seven seats, but as a five-seater, it also boasts 595 liters of luggage space behind the second row of seats and up to 1,710 liters with the rear seats folded down. If you are not immediately impressed by this performance, go ahead and compare like the EQB with the larger EQC from Mercedes. This leaves only 1,460 liters of trunk volume.
Skoda Elegant iV
Skoda has also put the necessary thought into the trunk of its electric car. You can see the Enyaq iV as a kind of electric MPV in an SUV jacket, and the numbers don’t lie. Already behind the second row of seats there is 585 liters of luggage space, but if you flatten the rear seats, a total of 1710 liters is created. This is especially surprising when comparing Skoda with its peers, because this EV shares its platform and technology with the Volkswagen ID.4 and Audi Q4 e-tron. With a maximum of 1575 liters and 1490 liters respectively, these two are less spacious. This is what they call Simply smart…
Hyundai Ioniq 5
If a traditional hatchback looks more appealing to you, the Hyundai Ionic 5 might be your thing. The Koreans have given their electric cars a design that makes you doubt they play in the Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus class, until you come close. Only then will you notice the size of such a model Ioniq 5, which in turn has advantages over the interior space. This way you have a standard volume of 531 liters, and a nice 1591 liters is created with the second row of seats lowered. Just like the Skoda Enyaq, this Hyundai also puts his group mate in his underwear. Although the Kia EV6 is built on the same platform, it offers just 1,300 liters of boot space.
We conclude with another SUV, but one in the compact segment. The Peugeot e-2008 shares its chassis and technology with the e-208, which is currently Peugeot’s smallest model. However, you wouldn’t say that when you look at the numbers. For example, the e-2008 already offers 434 liters of space behind the second row of seats, and it ties that up to 1,467 liters when laid flat. Not only is that 361 liters more than the e-208 it’s based on, but the Peugeot e-2008 is more spacious than the only electric station wagon currently on the market: the MG5. It delivers from 464 to 1,456 liters of trunk volume – which is not bad at all.
