If you’re looking for an electric car that can carry more than five people then you won’t need us to tell you that they are pretty thin on the ground. In fact, unless you’re prepared to shell out £85k+ for Tesla Model or are prepared to carry your family round in a van like the Citroen e-SpaceTourer or Vauxhall Vivaro-e, then you’re out of luck.

But there’s (some) good news on the horizon. Tesla has promised that a seven-seater Model Y is in the pipeline for UK customers and Mercedes has finally pulled the wraps off its EQB – a funky seven-seater SUV that (unlike the Tesla) is confirmed for launch early next year.

Tom Ford got behind the wheel for a early taster to see if it’s the one to go for if you’re in the market for a seven-seat EV.
