The market for electric vehicles is rapidly growing, as almost every big brand out there has released a few electric models to meet the new demand for eco-friendly driving. With that said, small electric cars that are most suitable for everyday urban life, affordability, and practicality are no longer the only options out there. The market now offers quite a few luxury electric cars as well, and while all of them are innovative and undeniably impressive, here are the top ten.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC SUV combines practicality with performance, sustainability with luxury, and takes comfortable driving to a whole new level as well. This electric luxury car is a top option for these reasons. What’s more, the driving range is an impressive 259miles, overshining the driving range of most other electric vehicles out there. This vehicle also offers quite a few other remarkable features for an electric car, such as four-wheel driving, a peak output of 402bhp, and a variety of driving models are available.
The I-Place is the first electric luxury vehicle to be released from a mainstream manufacturer to challenge the iconic Tesla directly. The Jaguar I-Place showcases stellar handling dynamics, striking interior quality, and an impressive 197bhp twin motor. This model is undeniably a premium electric vehicle and a top choice for anyone looking to buy a luxury car without negatively affecting the planet. The driving range also rates the vehicle as a top choice for long-distance travelers at about 250miles.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
Ford Mustangs have come a long way throughout history, as the iconic Ford range gets better and more appealing with time. Of course, Ford has released a luxury electric car to keep up with big brand competitors, and the Mach-E is a beautiful model. The luxury vehicle has a staggering 379mile driving range, ranking as a top choice for this reason. However, the car is also impressive for other reasons as it is considered one of the best luxury electric cars out there in terms of both value and driving range.
Tesla Model S
Of course, the brand that started the craze of electric vehicles will make it onto every list for top-rated vehicles in this category. The Model S is most impressive as a luxury vehicle for its futuristic cabin that comes complete with a massive touchscreen infotainment system that not many other luxury vehicles out there have. Tesla is also an excellent choice for comfortable long-distance driving as the specs on this vehicle are undeniably noteworthy compared to previous versions of Tesla’s electric cars.
Tesla Model 3
Tesla remains the biggest name in electric vehicles, and as a result, they have the most extensive and impressive range of eco-friendly luxury cars. The Model 3 upholds the brands’ name with sleek bodywork and incredibly futuristic interiors, an unmatched driving range, and other exceptional features such as a 0-62mph dash of a staggering 3.4 seconds and performance specs that will surely impress any driver.
The Polestar 2 is the more affordable, less muscular-looking version of Volvo’s Polestar 1 hybrid vehicle. This smaller version also shares a similar stylish exterior to that of the Volvo XC40 and the same ambient and luxury interior. The luxury electric vehicle contains an android developed infotainment system, although the impressive 402bhp is incomparable to most other cars from the iconic brand. The car is packed with a 78kWh battery that will provide a driving range of about 282miles when you opt for the performance pack. What’s more, this vehicle can charge at speeds of relatively 150kW, although the car lacks charging power compared to its closest rival, the Tesla Model 3.
Audi E-Tron Quattro
This is the first electric vehicle released by Audi, and it contains all the classy qualities the brand is known for. The interior space is quite impressive, and it offers a remarkable 402bhp. The battery is quite large at 95kWh, providing a driving range of about 250miles. The battery capacity of this luxury EV car is likely its best selling point, aside from its overall stylish bodywork and remarkably luxury interiors.
The BMW iX3 is the first EV vehicle to be released by the brand for export markets. And the 74kWh battery somehow provides a driving range of about 285miles. However, the iX3 isn’t as fast as most other electric luxury cars on this list, which is likely why the driving range is slightly more extensive. In addition, it’s also not the cheapest luxury eco vehicle out there. However, BMW fans are generally expecting high prices as the brand has made a name for itself for high-priced luxury cars ever since they released their first models. With that said, the primary selling point of this luxury EV is probably its fast-charging capacity, as you can charge to about 80% in a little over half an hour.
Tesla Model X
This seven-seat Tesla model is a large, spacious, and bulky-looking luxury EV. However, it is in a league of its own for these reasons. While it is definitely a luxury vehicle to rival others on this list, the large SUV has a shorter driving range of a little under 230miles and battery storage of about 100kWh. Upper-level versions of the Model X pack an impressive 600 horsepower. The luxurious interiors are likely the most notable selling point, other than the fact that it can seat seven comfortably.
Lexus UX 300e
The hybrid champion, Lexus, has released its first all-electric luxury car, and many might consider it more of a test model. While most specs on this vehicle fail to rival other EVs on this list, the Lexus UX 300e has decent performance, a shorter range of about 200miles. In addition, while the interior doesn’t quite impress when compared to the other luxury EVs, the bodywork is exceptionally stylish. With that said, there’s no doubt that we can expect more impressive luxury EVs from Lexus within the near future as the brand has already made a name for itself as low emissions champions, suggesting they have quite a bit of time to test the waters and create even better models.
