    I would get a hoist fitted if i were you. It makes it all much more manageable. If your putting down one back seat it can then go long ways. Not many cars will allow it to go width wise until you get into big motors. The old boy who bought my old scooter(a bit like yours size and shape) had an older honda that had a big space at rea and it went in width wise no bother but it was size of a discovery.

    I used to fit mine in with a big hoist into a toyota ch-r with the wider back seat folded, and its a fairly small boot. I currently got a folding one and a smaller hoist in back of a kona and there is plenty room left

    Current Car: Hyundai Kona Premium EV...2 way 40kg hoist
    Last Car: Toyota C-HR Excel Hybrid...4 way 80kg hoist

    Excuse my lack of knowledge on this subject but I would say this is where an estate would be perfect.

    Current car Mercedes B200 AMG premium plus without anything removed

    My husband used to fit his in the back of my Leon Estate. It used to go in sideways with just the seat and battery removed. All fitted in the load area without putting the back seats down. He has bought a smaller scooter since to fit my next car. So now we have loads of room in the back; at least untill I get my MINI.

    Current vehicle: 2018 SEAT LEON ST 1.8 TSI FR Technology DSG
    On order: MINI 5-Door Hatch 2.0 Cooper S Classic Steptronic

    We previously had a gogo and had a peugoet 3008. If you remove the arms from the seat then the seat fits in the area under the car boot, and the scooter fits complete width ways in the boot, no need to fold seats and the parcel shelf even stayed in place, we used to take the battery off and place at the back of the boot as that made up nearly half the weight of the scooter. If you need the arms on the scooter you would have to place the scooter seat on the back seat of the car.

    this was a previous model 3008, so you should definetly check on the new model in case anything has changed boot wise although I don’t think it has

    My husband used to have a very similar scooter. He used to get it in the back of my SEAT Leon ST without folding the seats down. He did not even have to take the back wheels/motor off. He used to remove the seat and battery put them in the front of the load area and then put the scooter in sideways, just folding the tiller down. I would imagine the Golf and Octavia estates would also do the job.

    Have you had a look at the MG5 EV as it’s an estate car.

    We have a pride I go as a fallback chair because our last car would not take the big chair.

    it’s an excellent chair but lately as the carer I struggle to lift it sometimes. My advice would be not an suv but a small estate like the Leon or Mg5 although they have a lip or an MPV like a berlingo Caddy
