The EQS is the ultimate luxury electric vehicle available today. Featuring an aerodynamic body designed for comfort and aerodynamic efficiency as well as an exquisite interior, its 56-inch MBUX Hyperscreen display and driver assistance technologies; luxury buyers have finally had a car to match them!

It can go from zero to 60 in just 1.89 seconds and will easily lap a drag strip or road course, even outstripping the $2 million Rimac Nevera in horsepower output. No other all-electric sedan offers such power and range.

7. Nissan Ariya

Even with its heavy kerb weight, the Ariya is enjoyable to drive thanks to light steering and progressive pedals that encourage acceleration when needed. Unfortunately, its heavy reliance on regenerative braking at high speeds means abrupt brake stops if this feature is engaged – this vehicle needs to feel responsive!

Engage and Evolve+ trims of this front-wheel drive electric vehicle offer up to 226 miles between charges. Opting for the dual motor e-4ORCE will increase this figure even further to 272 miles!

The B-Class offers many standard features, such as blind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist and parking assistance with Parktronic. In addition, its radar-based regenerative braking system enables drivers to customize it on the fly for optimal driving performance.
