There are a lot of cool electric cars out there, but these are your best choices if you want to buy one.
Genesis Electrified G80: The Most Well-Rounded Package You Can Buy
The GV60 is the first Genesis car built on a dedicated electric vehicle (EV) platform, which is also used by the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. The company also makes electric versions of the G80 and GV70. They share the same platform as their ICE-powered brothers, but both models are impressive. Two 136-kW electric motors give the Electric G80 a total of 365 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. An 87.2 kWh battery pack gives the electric G80 a range of 265 miles. This may not sound like a lot, but with a fast-charging 800V system, it only takes 22 minutes to charge from 10 to 80%. Even though it has a short range, the Electrified G80 is one of the best luxury electric cars money can buy. It has one of the most luxurious cabins and a very elegant outside design. The seats are made of the best leather, and there are 50 inches of displays: a 12.3-inch 3D digital instrument cluster, a 14.5-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system, and two 9.2-inch rear seat entertainment screens. The electric Genesis G80 2023 starts at $80,920.
Audi E-Tron GT: Arguably The Best Audi EV Currently On Sale
Audi has only been making electric cars for a short time, but in that time it has learned a lot. The new e-tron GT is one of the best EVs the company has to offer. The model is built on the same platform as the Taycan and comes in both standard and RS trims. Dual synchronous electric motors in the front and back of both models are powered by a 93-kWh lithium-ion battery. In the base model, they make 469 horsepower, or 522 horsepower when in boost mode. In the RS, they make 590 horsepower, or 637 horsepower when the launch control is on. The time it takes to go from 0 to 60 mph is as low as 3.1 seconds, and the range is between 232 and 238 miles. The outside of the e-tron GT is just as beautiful as the outside of any other Audi model, and the inside will have the best leathers, brushed aluminum trim, and carbon fiber inserts. The prices are between $104,900 and $143,900.
Mercedes-Benz EQS: You Can Even Have An AMG-Branded Electric S-Class
The Mercedes-Benz EQS should be on your list if you want to buy one of the best luxury electric cars on the market. Customers in the United States can choose from four models: the 450+, the 450 4Matic, the 580 4Matic, and the AMG EQS. Prices range from $104,400 to $147,550. The models that aren’t AMG have anywhere from 329 to 516 horsepower, while the AMG has a total of 649 horsepower. The EQS also says it can go up to 350 miles on a single charge. Even the AMG version can go 277 miles, making it one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its class. The interior of the EQS is everything you’d expect from a Mercedes: it’s roomy, luxurious, and useful. The cabin has soft-touch plastic, wood, leather, microfiber suede, carbon fiber, heating for the neck and shoulders, massage functions, and a lot of space, even for the person in the back seat. Even the EQS’s cargo space is bigger than the S-Class’s. It has 22 cubic feet of space behind the back seats and 63 cubic feet when the back seats are folded down.
BMW i4: Quite Literally An Electric BMW 4 Series
When it comes to electric cars, BMW is likely one of the few companies that makes cars that look good. Its i4 is no different, and besides a few small differences, it looks almost exactly like the 4 Series. The i4 comes in two trim levels, eDrive35 and M50, and costs between $52,000 and $68,700. If you want a small luxury sedan, the i4 is the best small luxury electric vehicle you can get. For the i4, power ranges from 281 horsepower in the base model to 536 horsepower in the top trim. The range is kind of disappointing because it only goes up to 301 miles, but the i4 supports up to 205 kW fast charging and can add up to 87 miles of range in 10 minutes. The cabin has all the luxury and tech features you’d expect from a BMW, as well as all the newest features.
Lucid Air: The Best Range Of Any Electric Vehicle Available Today
The Lucid Air is without a doubt one of the best high-end electric cars you can buy. The Air comes in five trims, with the base model having 480 horsepower and the top-of-the-line Air Sapphire having 1,200 horsepower. The Air has a range of up to 516 miles in its best configuration, and Lucid says that it shouldn’t go below 410 miles. During a recent test drive of the Air Touring, however, the guys at Car and Driver could only go 280 miles before they had to stop and charge the battery. The good news is that the Air can be charged quickly and can add up to 300 miles of range in just 21 minutes. The cabin has materials that look expensive and technology that is at the cutting edge. It also has one of the best interior spaces in its class. The Air also has a high-tech infotainment system with a larger touchscreen on top and a smaller touchscreen that looks like a tablet and can be retracted into the dashboard. It has voice-recognition software and a personal assistant that learns everything about the user. Prices for the 2023 Lucid Air range between $87,400 and $249,000.
