Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Even tall drivers will find enough space in the e-2008. Head and leg room are good and there’s enough interior width to prevent shoulders clashing.

There’s also a decent amount of storage space, including door bins, a deep cubbyhole, a couple of cupholders and a tray at the bottom of the dashboard. Above that, there’s a neat hidden compartment that clicks open to reveal another handy storage spot. On Allure models and up, you’ll find a wireless phone charging point in there.

In the back, the e-2008 offers a good amount of room to stretch out - more than you get in a Zoe, with a similar amount of leg room to the Kia E-Niro and Hyundai Kona Electric, but less head room (especially with a sunroof fitted). Plus, you get two USB ports in the back as standard. The boot impresses, too, offering almost as much space as the Kia E-Niro and much more than the Zoe or Kona Electric.

It’s also worth noting that the e-2008 makes no compromise on space compared with its fossil-fuel powered stablemates. The way the car is packaged allows its rear-seat room and boot space to be unaffected by the presence of a big battery. That said, the e-2008 doesn’t provide the front trunk (or ‘frunk) that’s a feature of many electric rivals.
