What luxury electric vehicles are good to buy?

We have looked at good value family electric vehicles (EVs) before, but what if you have the cash to splash? What luxury EVs are out there?

Well, as the EV market evolves, there is an increased appetite for being green and investing in a high-end brand to be seen driving around in. Tesla led the way over 10 years ago, but what’s the competition doing now – is it luxury, high-spec design or top performance that is catching the astute eye of the premium customer? Let’s take a look at what the premium car market has to offer.
