The ZS EV's mini-SUV shape means you get a good amount of space In a conveniently compact footprint; there's plenty of room in the back seats for two kids, although the driving position could be better.

MG ZS EV interior space, storage & comfort

The ZS has lost no interior space in the transition from petrol to electric power, which is to say it's still very spacious inside. There's plenty of room in the back seats, which are also very light and airy if you go for the higher-spec Trophy and Trophy Connect models, which feature a big glass roof.

One potential bugbear, though, is that the steering wheel only adjusts upwards and downwards, but not backwards and forwards for reach, and the seat bases are completely flat. Depending on your shape and size, you may struggle to find an ideal driving position.

Overall, space is excellent, front and rear, with plenty of knee, head and legroom for all occupants. The ZS is quiet inside, too, although there are quieter electric cars.

Boot space

With the rear seats in place, the ZS EV actually has more boot space than its petrol-engined counterpart: 470 litres versus 448. The ZS EV also compares favourably with electric-car rivals in this department: it's about a match for the Kia e-Niro's luggage capacity and will hold more than a Nissan Leaf.

It's a well shaped boot, too, with a dual-height floor allowing you to choose between a flat surface or maximum capacity, and there's dedicated cable storage hidden under the floor.
