2016 Electric Cars for Tall Drivers
Environmentally conscious tall folks – this one’s for you. Before I read Zach Shahan’s article about the best electric cars available, I didn’t know that there were quite so many electric vehicles available.
To provide a thorough overview of electric cars, I used Zach’s Evobsession post, 10 Best Electric Cars.
If you’re a fan of hybrid and electric vehicles, I would add this blog to your regular reading list. For now, here are the interior dimensions so that you can work on prioritizing your test drive list.
Electric Car Leg Room
Here are the leg room numbers on 2016’s electric vehicles:
When it comes to leg room, the Mercedes B-Class Electric and Tesla Model S lead the pack. On the shorter end of the leg room numbers are the Fiat 500e and the BMW i3.
Electric Car Head Room
Let’s take a look at the head room numbers for this group:
The Mercedes B-Class again leads the group in terms of head room. The rest of the pack remains very even in this dimension.
Electric Car Hip Room
Now let’s see the kind of hip room you can expect from these electric vehicles:
The BMW i3 and Volkswagen e-Golf don’t report on hip room. Leading this category is the Tesla Model S. As with head room, the field is pretty even in terms of hip room.
Interior Dimensions & MSRP
Let’s add in cost to the mix:
Interior Dimensions & Range
To give you the big picture, let’s add one more element to the comparison – range.
As always, the numbers themselves don’t tell the whole story. Test driving these cars will help you get an idea of how comfortable they are. If you are tall and have driven any of these vehicles, please share your experience in the comments.
