Electric vehicles are growing in popularity. In part this is due to the environmentally friendly nature of electric vehicles, and the improvements in accessibility that have been made. Government subsidies have also helped drive the sale of electric vehicles. Yet there’s also the fact that car manufacturers are making electric vehicles more and more attractive, as well as functional. No longer must you sacrifice comfort and luxury in order to be green. If you want a top-notch electric vehicle, you can get everything you’d ever want and more in some of the most expensive electric vehicles out there.
The Tesla Model S Plaid is super nice, and you’ll pay for it
Tesla is perhaps the most famous luxury electric vehicle maker in the world, so it’s no surprise that one of the most expensive electric vehicles is made by Tesla. The Model S Plaid, whose name was inspired by the movie ‘Spaceballs,’ comes in at an astonishing $129,000. What do you get for over a hundred grand? 1,020 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque, as well as seating for five and a luxurious interior.
Electrek notes that while Tesla was going to be coming out with a Tesla Model S Plaid Plus, that car was recently scrapped. According to them, “Elon Musk has since nixed the entire Plaid+ trim claiming that people don’t need more than 400 miles of range, and that the regular Plaid is ‘just too good.’”
The Jaguar I-Pace is one of the most expensive luxury SUVs, and with good reason
You get a whole lot for the roughly $80,000 you’ll spend on the 2021 Jaguar I-Pace. The I-Pace is the kind of luxury electric vehicle that will make you forget that it’s electric – except for when you notice how quiet it is.
The 2021 Jaguar I-Pace comes with a killer infotainment system, a quicker charger system than ever, and an interior worthy of its hefty price tag.
The 2022 Porsche Taycan is crazy expensive, but comes in new throwback colors
The 2022 Porsche Taycan is one of the most expensive electric vehicles you can buy, but you’ll love it if you do. The Taycan will charge quickly and have great range. It also has Remote Park Assist, which allows you to park your Taycan via your smartphone, even if you’re not in your car.
As a bonus, the 2022 Porsche Taycan will be available in 90s throwback colors like Rubystone Red, Moonlight Blue Metallic, Riviera Blue, Viola Metallic, and Acid Green. The newest iteration of the Porsche Taycan also includes Android Auto. Previously it only had Apple CarPlay.
As car manufacturers make more and more electric vehicles, we’re sure to see more appealing electric options. Electric vehicles are currently so expensive in part because of how much it costs to make the batteries. Yet more car companies are partnering with battery makers – or even starting their own plants. This means we’re likely going to see the cost of electric vehicles coming down in the next few years.
Yet that doesn’t mean that all electric vehicles will still be a bargain. As you can see from these three most expensive electric vehicles, there will always be options at different price points – and luxury levels – available for consumers.
