Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Of the electric cars currently available, the Skoda Citigo e iV is among the smallest; in fact, only the Smart ForFour EQ is smaller. Yet, even if you’re tall, sitting in the front won’t be a problem for you; its high roofline allows plenty of head room. Storage space is decent, too, with useful door pockets and a single cupholder located centrally below the dashboard. Another practical touch is the small shelf that divides an open-faced cubbyhole ahead of the gear selector.

The battery is stuffed under the rear seats, the bench being raised by 5cm compared with that of the old petrol Citigo in order to fit them beneath. However, the impact this has on space isn’t especially marked and there’s still a decent amount of head room for adults. Those who are six feet tall should find enough room to be comfortable on short journeys, although taller folk will find their hair brushing the ceiling. Knee and leg room, meanwhile, should be just about acceptable if you aren’t especially long in the leg. There are only two seats in the back, though, and you can’t lower the rear windows – they pop out instead.

An adjustable boot floor is an optional extra, and, at its lowest setting, the Citigo’s boot is impressively deep. It doesn’t go back very far, though, and there’s a tall load lip at the tailgate. One thoughtful touch is the storage well that's found just underneath the boot's entrance; it's the ideal place to keep a charging cable close to hand.
