What Is the Best Luxury Electric Vehicle?

May 11th, 2022 by

The best luxury electric vehicles available in 2022 include the BMW iX, the Mercedes-Benz EQS, and the Porsche Taycan. Read more about each model here.

There are many different criteria to use when determining the “best” luxury electric vehicles. Ultimately, the best car for you is the one that suits your particular needs. But, when considering factors such as design, driving experience, tech, and battery range, certain models do begin to stand out. So while different drivers have different needs, we can still compare the top EVs for 2022 and attempt to crown a champion. And at Ray Catena Auto Group, we can help you choose from our inventory of the best luxury electric vehicles available right now. Here are three that we have found offer great overall features and value.


3. BMW iX

 

Coming in a respectable third place is the BMW iX. The iX is also our best LEV SUV model of the year. So if you are in the market for an all-electric SUV, this is the vehicle for you. BMW has equipped the iX with a wide array of amazing features. But what really sets this vehicle apart from its competition is its outstanding battery life. The iX can get over 300 miles before needing to recharge. Most other LEV SUVs have a range in the low-to-mid 200s.

Of course, the BMW iX is more than just a long-lasting battery. This is a BMW, after all. From its striking exterior design to the fully modern and comfortable cabin, there’s nothing not to admire about the iX.


#2. Mercedes-Benz EQS

 

 

As hard as it was not to give the iX the top spot on this list, it was even harder to deny the Mercedes-Benz EQS. Mercedes-Benz has come out swinging, with one of the most exciting and efficient luxury electric vehicles ever crafted. Some of the highlights include 516 horsepower, 611 feet of torque, 0-60 MPH in just 4.1 seconds, and speeds of 130 MPH. But, like the iX, the battery is what really helps set the EQS apart. With 350 miles of range, the EQS is in truly elite territory.

The EQS is also one of the most advanced models in terms of tech. Both the cabin and the drivetrain offer glimpses of the highest-end EV manufacturing standards. With the MBUX upgrade, the EQS also holds the record for the largest dashboard display (56 inches) of any EV. And, of course, that dashboard is not all just for show. On it, you will find all the information you need, from the infotainment system to your digital dash display. And all of it is fully interactive with crystal clear resolution.


#1. Porsche Taycan

 

 

The Porsche Taycan does not have quite the elite range (212 miles) of the other two vehicles on this list. And its cabin tech doesn’t quite match the extravagance of the EQS. So why are we calling it our #1 best luxury electric vehicle?

The answer is simple: driving performance. We are, after all, ranking vehicles. And of all the LEVs available in 2022, the Taycan family consistently delivers the best driving experience. From its unmatched handling to the elite speeds of the Turbo and Turbo S models, the Taycan is simply the best performing vehicle on the LEV market. Simply put, if you’re looking for an electric vehicle that performs like a power vehicle, the Taycan is for you.
