Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
One of the best things about the ZS EV is its spacious interior; it’s far roomier than a Renault Zoe. Thanks to clever packaging, space up front is good, with plenty of head and leg room for the driver and passenger.
Rear space is also excellent – better than you'll find in the Kia e-Niro and far more generous than in the Hyundai Kona Electric. Even with a panoramic sunroof (standard on Exclusive trim) fitted, there’s enough head room for six-footers, plus more leg room than most buyers will ever need. Just remember that the Skoda Karoq is even more spacious in the back, if you’re cross shopping with conventionally powered family SUVs.
The ZS EV officially has a slightly bigger boot than the petrol ZS; its capacity is 470 litres with the rear seats in use, versus 448 litres. That’s a bit bigger than the e-Niro’s boot and massive compared with everything else electric powered for the money. Once again, though, the Karoq is more spacious still.
Because the batteries are housed under the rear seats, you’re left with a noticeable step in the floor when the rear seatbacks are folded down. It’s far from terrible, though, and the standard height-adjustable boot floor helps get around the issue when set in its highest position.
