That's tricky. 6 foot people don't all have the same proportions, as with other heights, so the relative lengths of trunk and limbs is a big factor.
You need to go sit in them and check the adjustments and clearances.

As cah implies, any SUV size car should accommodate a 6 footer. A lot of much smaller cars do too - it's not that unusual a size these days.

Not the Kona, its too small. If your average 6ft (not overlong legged) you'll find the rear room for passengers is pretty restricted, even my 8 year old said there was almost no room for his legs (and that's saying something when he had no issues in the back of my Zoe).

Any bigger than supermini SUV will do, an e-Niro if you need 300mile range or MG ZS EV if you need space and range isn't such an issue, or if your rich go straight for a Tesla X which is massive and has good range.

You're assuming rear passengers are a concern.
The Kona isn't really an SUV anyway, it's a crossover. (The Niro is bigger, but I'm not sure if that is not still a x-over.)

All cars should fit 6 footers in the front. By extension all BEVs should as well.

Personal comfort in a particular model of car will override the above so try em out!

What about Tesla model 3 ? Is it good for tall drivers and rear passengers ?

M3 is a saloon, and in no way an SUV. The MX is, but in a different price bracket.

A lot of these classifications overlap.

All modern saloons ride high

All moderns SUVs are soft.

Etc

What are the specific requirements that the OP needs

6 foot is not even remotely out with percentiles that all cars are designed for.

Yes I did assume rear passengers would be involved. Or they would be on the look out for a 2 seater EV?

Not the Leaf. While it is high enough, the stearig wheel is not telescopic so it is not that comfortable for me even though I am a bit shorter than you are.

The Jaguar I Pace is a good SUV for 6 footers with very deep pockets!

Just a suggestion, there is a specialist sports car dealer down the road from me, who has got one for £45K with 15K miles on the clock, cheapest one that I have seen anywhere.

You're 6ft - not a giant :p. All cars are suitable for a 6ft. You're two inches shorter than me and I've got about a foot of headroom in my Leaf.

The only car I've got experience to say to avoid is the Pagani Zonda. They're incredibly tiny.

Not in the back. All my family are tall, so the first test for any car is the back seat headroom.

The iPace isn't good in the back. My hair was brushing on the head lining. Surprisingly he Leaf is better. The Niro is good too. You can generally predict how it will be by looking at the profile of the car - anything with a curve down towards the rear will be compromised.
