Hyundai IONIQ 5

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is arguably one of the most striking EVs on sale today. With a futuristic exterior and an equally cutting-edge cabin, you could think that this is a car that hasn’t been designed with practicality in mind. 

But that’s not the case. Its interior features many hard-wearing but high-quality materials, while its boot is more than large enough for most hounds.

If you’re after a low-cost entry into the world of EV ownership, then the MG5 is one of the best ways to do it. Arriving as the first electric estate car in the UK, the MG5’s starting price of just under £26,500 makes it one of the best-priced EVs on sale today.

But it’s also got practicality to back up its budget-friendly price tag. Its large boot and spacious cabin means it’s not just good for dogs, but all of the clutter they tend to bring with them too!

Volkswagen ID.3

Volkswagen has been quickly expanding its ID line-up of electric cars but the compact ID.3 was the first. Though it’s somewhat smaller than other cars on this list, its bespoke electric platform means it offers more space than a conventional petrol or diesel-powered hatchback. 

The cabin is helped no end by a flat floor, while the decent size boot will no doubt prove to be a hit with dog owners.

Skoda Enyaq iV

Skoda’s previous electric car - the Citigo-e - wouldn’t have been a great option for dog owners. However, its latest EV - the Enyaq iV - is really on the money thanks to its impressively large boot and well-made cabin. 

It also packs a decent range while its variety of ‘Simply Clever’ features should help to make transporting your dog less of a stress.
