Hi all,

Just wanted to share my impressions of the EV6, in particular regarding its practicality (as that was the main dealbraker for my wife if we cannot fit decent luggage + stroller for our toddler).

Lo and behold, we managed to fit two large suitcases + stroller, which could be substituted by a third large suitcase easily.

You might notice that the suitcase is overhanging out of the frame of the car, but the boot closed without forcing, as there is more room towards the rear window than the plastic frames suggest.

Furthermore, I saw somebody on the forum thinking of skipping the Meridian sound system to get some more space in the boot - don't bother, there was one in the showroom with a basic spec and the extra room instead of subwoofer can house the cables at most!

Overall great car - will test the Model Y (wife still has to make up her mind about the extra room in Model Y vs the cheaper, more reliable and better spec'd EV6) to make a final decision on which car to jump in the EV train.

What did you decide in the end?

Have you had a chance to compare the trunk / boot of the EV6 vs Tesla model 3 and Tesla model Y ?

We ordered the EV6 - the Model Y is of course a lot more spacious/practical but the difference in extras you get, the price and the big warranty of EV6 blows Model Y out of the water...

The boot of EV6 is similar to the Model 3 but has a hatch which is a lot better. Its on par in size and in terms of stuff we could fit in my series 3 touring, so was good enough for us :)

Hope that gives you some more color!

Did you have a chance to test if you can fit more stuff in the EV6, compared to the Tesla Model 3 (keeping the back seats up) simply because the Model 3 is a saloon? In the sense that not just the capacity, but also the shape of the boot (trunk) matters. E.g. the number of tennis balls you can fit might be similar but maybe more suitcases fit in the EV6?

Oh yeah, for sure the stroller did not fit in the Model 3 without disassembling it, so the shape definitely is suboptimal in the saloon setting.

So its similar in volume but a lot more pain to fit the same stuff in there.

This is something that was almost a dealbreaker for us - we have a crashproof dog crate for our faithful companions and it didn’t fit. Until we took the boot floor out where it fitted like a glove. :)

Which crate you have and what are the dimensions of the crate?

The size of the trunk for the dog is the biggest issue that makes me hesitate to pull the trigger.
