Best Luxury electric cars

Luxury electric cars tend to cost a lot more than mainstream models, but you also get a lot more, typically including sports-car acceleration and the latest interior tech.

1st
The BMW i5 is a great pick for an electric luxury sedan thanks to its classy design, comfortable and quiet cabin, and extensive collection of helpful technology features. In fact, we think the i5 is better than the regular 5 Series and one of the best EVs on the road today. Read full review

The Model 3 rises above the class in almost every area. It's fun to drive, practical and stylish. The touchscreen interface and lack of dedicated smartphone integration can be annoyance at times, but overall the 3 is a great pick for an EV. Read full review

Best Luxury all-wheel-drive electric cars

Do you need all-wheel drive in a luxury electric car? The enhanced winter traction is certainly a plus, as is the dramatic power boost, but keep in mind that you'll lose some range in the bargain.

Best Super luxury electric cars

Want to get the most range out of your executive-class EV? This is the segment for you. Because these cars lack all-wheel drive, they maximize the platform's range potential.

While the 4S, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S variants return stunning performance, the base rear-wheel-drive Taycan model doesn't excite in quite the same way. We found it competent, comfortable and highly customizable, but it lacks the performance punch you expect from the brand. Read full review

The EQS, in a nutshell, is an electric S-Class. Just like an S-Class, the EQS is comfortable, quiet and packed full of features. There are a few drawbacks, such as mediocre rear seat space, but overall the EQS is a smart pick for a luxury EV. Read full review

Best Super luxury all-wheel-drive electric cars

Standard AWD means you're adding power and subtracting range, but you'll still get plenty of miles per charge in these luxury cruisers, plus face-flattening acceleration.

1st
Superior to the regular 7 Series in nearly every way, the all-electric i7 offers fantastic ride quality, a library-quiet interior, and an impressive suite of technology features. It sets a new standard for BMW and is a worthy competitor to the best Mercedes-Benz has to offer. Read full review

The EQS 580 is one of the best luxury EVs around thanks to its impressive technology, driver comfort and exceptional range. Easy to drive and easy to use, the EQS 580 is a clear indication of what's to come from Mercedes-Benz. We just wish there was a little more S-Class in the EQS. Read full review

Best Performance electric cars

Pretty much every electric car with more than one motor is going to be fast, but some EVs prioritize performance above all else. These are the true athletes of the EV world.

The sporty i4 M50 uses dual electric motors, providing confident all-wheel-drive traction and packing a wallop of power to the tune of 536 horsepower. That's more straight-line speed than you'll ever need, but it fell short of our expectations in the handling department. Read full review

Best Exotic performance electric cars

If cost is no object and you like feeling nauseous when you floor it, try one of these electron-munching speed demons. EV acceleration is a whole new ballgame, and these cars epitomize it.

1st
The AMG EQS 53 4Matic+ feels like a more hopped-up version of the standard EQS sedan, enhanced with more power and a sport-tuned chassis. While it's quick, and surprisingly comfortable, the AMG EQS doesn't offer the same headline-grabbing speed as other top-flight luxury electric sedans in this class. Read full review

The Model S continues to improve with age, with more range and performance than the car that debuted in 2012, plus vastly improved build quality. Its hatchback trunk is the biggest in the class, and access to Tesla's Supercharger network should help alleviate any range anxiety while making road trips. Read full review
