The benefits of the building the Enyaq iV on the VW Group’s 'MEB' electric-car platform are clear the moment you open any one of the five doors. It’s huge inside, with so many clever features that are destined to make it a great electric family car to live with.

But that hasn’t stopped Skoda getting the basics right. It just feels like the engineers and designers have put thought into making the Enyaq iV one of the most practical electric cars on the market. The cabin is roomy and the boot is massive. Better still, all this space is available for a bargain price.

Skoda Enyaq iV interior space, storage & comfort

There’s plenty of space inside the Enyaq iV, whichever of the five seats you’re sitting in. It’s easy to fit a child seat, and adults will have no trouble getting comfortable thanks to the completely flat floor. In addition to the roomy cabin, there’s lots of space for storing odds and ends. There’s the usual deep bin between the front seats, plus a tray behind the gear lever. But that special electric platform frees up space where you might not expect it; there’s a cavern under the centre console that would ordinarily be filled in, for example.

Boot space

The boot, which measures 585 litres, is huge – and while there is space to keep the cables under the boot floor, there’s no extra storage under the bonnet in the Enyaq iV's case. Fold the rear seats flat and you’re presented with a gigantic 1,710-litre load bay – one of the biggest of any electric car currently on sale.
