Electric cars aren’t just practical – they can be really luxurious too. Admittedly, luxury electric cars are naturally at the top of the price range, but the flexible nature of car leasing means that these cars are a lot more affordable than if you were to try to buy it.

I’ve made this list of my pick of the best luxury electric cars so that you can find the right car for what you need.

Tesla have been hyped to the extent that if you think of a high-end luxury car, you’ll probably end up thinking of the Model X.

With all-wheel drive and the ability to get a pretty impressive 300 miles per charge, the Tesla scores well when it comes to the overall driving experience. It can also be ridiculously fast too, capable of giving you a tasty 691bhp. That translates to 0 to 60mph in about 3 seconds.

The interior is classy too, with double-hinged doors that give you a full 11 inches of outward clearance.

The Tesla is a great luxury electric car overall, but you might have to wait a while to get one – Tesla have a backlog of thousands of orders and are struggling to increase manufacturing capacity.

If you want decent storage, and space for rear passengers, but don’t want to compromise on the sport-style driving experience, the Porsche Panamera is a good option to choose.

It’s technically a hybrid, so it’s not fully electric, but I think the Panamera offers enough electric-capability to be considered in the list to be honest. The standard, 4.0litre model can storm from 0 to 62mph in a mere 4.2 seconds and hit a cheek-flapping 180mph if you give it enough welly.

Porsche claim that you’ll be able to get 113mpg out of the Panamera, but expect this to be around the high sixties or eighties in the real world and not a testing facility.

It’s technically an SUV, but Jaguar’s first all-electric car has the sexy looks that a lot of sports utility vehicles could only dream of. With a sleekness that makes it stand out in a crowded marketplace, the I-pace’s styling is really refreshing.  

It’s not just stunning looks though, it can go from stationary to 65mph in 4.5 seconds too. Travelling about 240 miles on a single charge, the Jaguar I-pace gives you a hell of a lot more freedom than a lot of electric cars on the market.

Like with all cars in the electric segment, you should probably take the mpg figures with a pinch of salt – what you get out of a car on the road is going to be different to what you get out of it in test conditions, after all.
