Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Vauxhall Mokka-e doesn't feel as open or airy as the Kia e-Niro and Volkswagen ID.3, but even tall drivers should find plenty of head and leg room available inside it. There’s also a generous amount of storage space, including a well-sized glovebox, a couple of good-sized door bins and a surprisingly large storage tray at the bottom of the dash. The tray is big enough to take a hefty wallet or a large smartphone, and you’ll also find the wireless charging pad there on Ultimate Nav models.

You feel a little more hemmed in the back due to the tall window line and a tapered roofline, but unless you’re over six feet tall, you should still have enough head and leg room. You’ll certainly be better off than you would be in the back of a smaller EV such as the DS3 Crossback E-Tense, Mazda MX-30 or Renault Zoe.

Being an SUV, it’s a shame the Mokka-e doesn’t offer sliding or reclining rear seats. The rear seats are split 60/40 rather than the more versatile 40/20/40, limiting your options when you have passengers and luggage to fit onboard.

The Vauxhall Mokka-e's boot is pretty disappointing by class standards, too. There’s enough for a weekly shop or short family holiday, but rivals such as the e-Niro, MX-30, ID.3 and even the Renault Zoe offer more space. At least it comes with a height-adjustable boot floor which allows you to separate the boot into two compartments – handy if you want to stop your charging cables sliding around in the main compartment.
