Honda e practicality & boot space

The Honda e's boot space isn't great, but otherwise practicality is good by small-car standards

The Honda e's practicality is adequate by city-car standards, with lots of nifty touches inside, including a phone pocket below the USB ports and a pull-out cup-holder for the driver. There is dedicated cable storage , but the boot is fairly tiny – a Skoda Citigo-e iV has usefully more storage space. However, the Honda also offers better rear passenger space, and – unlike the three-door MINI Electric – five doors as standard.

Honda e interior space, storage & comfort

There’s seating for four in the Honda e, and a surprising amount of leg and headroom that’ll comfortably accommodate two adults behind a fairly tall driver. There’s no middle seat in the back, so it's strictly a four-seater. The seats are a bit flat in the back, but for the short hops you’re likely to do, they're more than comfortable enough. Lots of light coming from the sunroof and windows helps, too.

Boot space

The Honda’s boot is rather small. One airline cabin-sized bag will take up the majority of the space, so pack light if you’re going away. However, there's cable storage under the boot floor and the seatbacks fold down (albeit in one piece) to extend the space. Unlike some larger electric cars, there’s no storage under the bonnet, as that’s where the charging hardware is.
