When American car manufacturer Tesla released the Roadster in 2008, it changed the world. Not only was it the first mass-production all-electric vehicle, but it was also a seriously desirable luxury sports car that sold at around $100,000 (~£80,000). Tesla’s strategy was very clever – if the first EVs could be seen as exciting and high-end, it would be far easier to sell later, less expensive versions to the mass market.
In the last 15 years, a growing number of manufacturers have started producing top luxury electric cars that really impress in terms of quality and comfort (and which will turn heads everywhere you go).
Looking to invest in a high-end EV? Here’s our list of the best luxury electric cars available in 2023.
What makes a ‘luxury’ car?
Although everybody has different tastes, luxury cars tend to have a few common features:
- Sumptuous interiors – The best luxury electric cars use the most refined materials throughout the interior – leather seating, wooden panelling, high-quality metals and plastics. They also often include features like ergonomic seating, great sound systems, advanced tech and temperature control.
- Desirable design – Externally, these cars have attractive silhouettes, thoughtful features and sometimes unique elements for added convenience – such as retractable door handles.
- Performance – The best luxury electric cars offer just as much substance as style. They give you incredible range, superior handling and fast charging, making them a joy to drive.
