If you're thinking about buying an electric car but are concerned that it might be too snug inside, here's some good news: Today’s EVs come in more shapes and sizes than ever, so you can go electric without compromising when it comes to fitting passengers and cargo.

Because CR buys and tests its own vehicles, including the EVs on our list below, we know exactly how much cargo can fit in the back, exactly how roomy the driver’s seat feels, and exactly how easy it is to get in and out of the front and rear seats.

To come up with our list of the roomiest, most comfortable EVs, our experts measured interior space, checked how many suitcases and duffel bags could fit in the back, calculated cargo room, and had testers of all shapes and sizes repeatedly get in and out of the front and rear seats. We do this as part of our weekslong, in-depth evaluation of all the vehicles we buy—including the top-selling EVs on the market.

More on EVs

Below is a list of the most comfortable and spacious electric vehicles in order of their overall scores. Not all of the models on this list are recommended, often due to reliability concerns. But all of them get a Green Choice badge, which means they are among the 20 percent of vehicles on the market with the cleanest emissions.

More and more EVs are hitting the market every month, so if you don’t see anything that piques your interest here, check back soon. We’ll be updating this article frequently as we add our evaluations of new vehicles. We’ll have an update on the Ford Mustang Mach-E in the coming weeks, and as soon as they are available we plan to test the BMW iX, Cadillac Lyriq, Chevrolet Bolt EUV, Ford F-150 Lightning, Hummer EV, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Nissan Ariya, Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T and R1S, and Volkswagen ID4.
