What's the best electric car with a big boot?

I am ready to change my now 12-year-old BMW 520d Touring for a new car. I have owned my BMW from new and have been delighted with it, but my annual mileage has dropped below 10,000 miles a year following retirement.

I am wondering if now is a good time to switch to an EV. I have a budget of £50,000 to spend but the replacement car must have similar boot space to my BMW 5 Series estate. The only car I have found with a comparable boot to date is the Skoda Enyaq. Any there any other EVs I should consider?

The Skoda Enyaq iV sounds like your best option. It's a very practical electric vehicle that represents excellent value for money alongside premium competitors.

As an alternative, take a look at the Hyundai Ioniq 5. It's not quite as versatile as the Enyaq, but it's quite a big car which translates into a lot of interior space. You could also look at the Mercedes EQB – although it's pricier and not as practical as the Skoda.
