April 3rd, 2022 by

Many luxury electric vehicles feature state-of-the-art onboard technology. Among the best LEV models for onboard tech are the Tesla Model 3, the Porsche Taycan, and the Mercedes-Benz EQS. Learn more.

There are many different kinds of onboard technology in luxury electric vehicles. The most eye-catching features are usually the LED touchscreen infotainment centers. But these screens are accompanied by advanced dashboard displays, climate control, ambient lighting, heated seats, voice commands, and much more. At Ray Catena Auto Group, our knowledgeable staff can help you find the LEV model that has the right features for your life as a driver.


Many luxury manufacturers have gone to great lengths to design stylish interiors for their EVs. And while it’s hard to go wrong, there are a few models that really stand out. Among those manufacturers are Tesla, Porsche, and Mercedes-Benz. Here are some of the highlights that you can find onboard luxury electric vehicles from each of these manufacturers.

#3 Tesla Model 3

The interior of a Tesla Model 3 may not look as stunning as some of the others on this list. But the technology that goes into this LEV’s design is no less impressive than others. As with all Tesla vehicles, the Autopilot feature alone is enough to merit consideration for this list. While it’s a misconception to assume this means the vehicle is fully self-driving, Autopilot does significantly enhance the driving experience. Tesla Autopilot enables traffic-aware cruise control, self-parking, and automatic lane navigation among other features.

In addition to Autopilot, the Model 3 also comes standard with a simplified 15-inch touch screen. Wireless connectivity and smartphone charging are also standard tech features in every Tesla vehicle. Despite the minimalism of the Model 3’s cabin the number of tech capabilities it has will rival any other LEV.

Porsche Taycan Turbo S Luxury Electric Vehicles#2 Porsche Taycan

While the Model 3 goes for a minimalist cabin design, the Porsche Taycan flashes all the bells and whistles available. But it’s more than just a nice-looking vehicle (both inside and out). Three LCD monitors light up the cabin and display all the information you need. This includes a head-up dash display right behind your steering wheel to help keep your eyes on the road. Wireless capabilities enable hands-free calling and other voice commands. And you never need to worry about your tech being out of date either. The Taycan’s infotainment system provides automatic updates over the air whenever needed.

And all that isn’t enough, the Taycan’s onboard tech helps create one of the most comfortable rides on the road. With stunning ambient lighting and advanced dual-zone climate control, there is nothing not to love about the Porsche Taycan’s onboard tech.

Mercedes Benz EQS Luxury Electric Vehicles#1 Mercedes-Benz EQS

The Mercedes-Benz EQS is one of the most impressive LEVs all around. From its exceptional range and great driving capabilities, it almost doesn’t need all its onboard tech. But Mercedes-Benz knows how to treat its drivers with the utmost luxury. There are almost too many things to talk about in the EQS. From the 64-color options for the ambient lighting to hands-free access, and (of course) the exceptional drivetrain. But instead, we will focus on the EQS’ equipped AI which helps the vehicle “learn” the driver’s preferences. This means the car can store information, such as your preferred music volume, seat position, temperature, or even routes and travel speeds.
