Which electric vehicle (EV) suits families best and what features does it have that make it good to drive and travel with kids?

The Kia e-Niro is a great choice for families due to its 253 (road tested) mile range, meaning that if you're making short, local trips, it will only need to be charged once a week. There's also room for three kids in the back, and it boasts a 451-litre boot space. The Hyundai Kona Electric is also recommended - it's cheaper, runs for 279 miles and is slightly smaller, too. The Jaguar I-Pace has a similar range to the Tesla Model X (292 miles), and offers a 656-litre boot space.
