You sit quite high up in the Zoe and the fact that you can't lower the driver's seat will prove an irritation for taller drivers. However, there’s enough movement in the seat and steering wheel to allow most drivers to get comfortable. Your view out of the front is largely unobstructed and, although the rear pillars do block some of the view when looking over your shoulder, rear parking sensors are standard. Go for range-topping Signature trim and you'll even get a reversing camera.
There's a 7.0in colour touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard that you use to control the radio, Bluetooth and sat-nav systems. It's reasonably intuitive, although the equivalent touchscreens in other electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen e-Golf, are even more user-friendly. You get a DAB radio and Android Auto (not Apple CarPlay) smartphone mirroring as standard, while upgrading to Signature trim also brings a punchy Bose sound system.
The Zoe's interior feels reasonably well constructed, but there are some rather cheap-feeling plastics on show, particularly around the door handles and handbrake. A Leaf is smarter inside, but if you want a genuinely classy interior you'll need to fork out for an e-Golf or a BMW i3.
