Of all the advantages electric cars have over conventional petrol- or diesel-engined alternatives, increased passenger and boot space is the easiest to appreciate and benefit from.

Advice about big boot EVs

Electric cars with big boots FAQs

Of the electric cars with big boots featured here, it’s the Kia EV9 with the largest overall boot space, with up to 2,393 litres when all five of its rear seats are folded over and it’s loaded to the roof. If boot size with five seats in use is more important, to you, then Volkswagen’s ID.Buzz trumps the Kia, providing a 1,121-litre capacity over the EV9’s 838-litre figure.

At Carwow, we consider a very large suitcase as having a capacity of 120 litres. For electric cars with a boot of 600 litres or more, five such cases should fit, while a model with 480-599 litres of boot volume should be able to accommodate four of them.

Our top choice remains the Kia EV9. Yes, it’s short of what the VW ID.Buzz can provide in carrying capacity with five passengers, but - for now, at least - the Kia’s the only one of the two with the added flexibility of seven seats. Even when they’re both occupied, there’s still a useful 333 litres of space at the back, plus 90 litres under the bonnet.

Here we’re going to recommend the Volkswagen ID.Buzz over the Kia EV9 thanks to the additional length and height its boot space benefits from, providing more room for an appropriately large crate for your canine companion. The larger the crate, the more chance the dog will be able to stretch and position itself comfortably, making it less stressed on a long journey. Plus, because the ID.Buzz is van-based, its boot floor is at a lower height making it easier for dogs to get in and out.
