While consumers on the bottom end of the market are seeking out cheap deals on new electric offerings, many buyers don’t want to sacrifice luxury by making the switch to battery powered automobiles. With these five pricey cars, there is no need to eschew comfort by going electric.

1. Acura NSX

Honda is a brand known more for their quiet luxury, but when the new NSX stormed onto the sports car scene in 2015 it shattered all preconceived notions. The 2017 supercar model is no different with a minimum price of $150,000 and a combined 573 horsepower from its turbocharged V6 engine and three electric motors.

2. BMW i8

With 357 horsepower and a sleek body design, the 2017 BMW i8 electric hybrid makes a statement wherever it goes. At a suggested retail price upwards of $140,000, the i8 definitely reflects its sticker price in its fantastic design. The car’s impressive scissor doors and electric blue Vossen wheels ensure that owners won’t be giving up style for fuel economy.

3. Tesla Model S P100D

With a legendary 0 to 60 time of 2.28 seconds, the Tesla P100D astonished drivers everywhere with its speedy performance. Pricing in at around $130,000, the Tesla P100D has become the hottest car of 2017, with consumers clamoring to sit behind the 760 horsepower engine and enjoy the powerful all-wheel-drive.

4. Mercedes Benz S550e

For a little less than $100,000, Mercedes enthusiasts can nab the stylish S550e hybrid sedan. The model boasts 436 horsepower and a twin-turbo V6 engine as well as three different driving modes that allow toggling between the gas engine and the electric motor. Wireless charging will also be offered on an upcoming version of the S550e, which will release in the United States in spring 2018.

5. Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid

Porsche’s signature sports car design has been given a futuristic twist with their new hybrid offering, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, available at just under $100,000. The car features the Porsche Advanced Cockpit where drivers can monitor every detail of their fuel consumption with the aid of a touchscreen and a phone app. The luxuriously silent interior and feather-light air springs ensure a smooth ride.

Combining the latest advances in hybrid technology with the most sophisticated trends in body style and design, today’s electric vehicles can be both luxurious and high-speed. Driving in the lap of luxury has never been so cutting edge.
