BMW is not the only top-notch company focusing on the electrification of luxury cars. Some others on the list are Porsche Taycan, Mercedes Benz EQC, and many more. These companies together are building a new era of sustainability without even compromising on the features. In this blog, we will dig into the various parameters associated with the luxury electric vehicle market.


Why do consumers prefer electric luxury vehicles?


Sustainability has become a new standard for luxury. For instance, Europe is emphasizing reducing almost 55.2% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from SUVs as well as new cars by the year 2030. Additionally, a survey conducted by Research Nester revealed that almost 62.5% of the consumers surveyed are considering an automotive brand’s commitment to sustainable practices before they make any purchase. The unique clientele of luxury vehicles is no exception.

Moving ahead in this direction, automakers are also showing keen interest in making sustainable vehicles. For instance, BMW Group targets to eradicate carbon dioxide emissions by almost 40.2% per vehicle by 2030. In 2023, the company sold out almost 82,710 complete electric BMWs.


Consumers are no longer concerned about the performance of luxurious electric vehicles since luxury automobile manufacturers produce exceptional-quality vehicles. For instance, the E-Tron GT is a coalescence of stellar looks, fast-moving performance, and opulent experience. The planted stance aids the sedan reach 0-100 km per hour in just 4 seconds.

Ultra-Modern Technology

Luxury electric vehicles are at the front line of technological evolution, rendering a plethora of ultra-modern features and connectivity options. These tech-savvy electric luxury car buyers are demanding seamless integration with smartphones, high-resolution infotainment systems, and autonomous driving capabilities.

Charging Infrastructure

According to the data published by the International Energy Agency, there were 2.71 million public charging points installed in the world by the end of 2022. Automakers are acknowledging the concern of the availability of fewer charging stations by enhancing the range of capabilities of electric vehicles.

Various countries are providing incentives to boost the sales of luxury electric vehicles. For example, New Zealand is giving cash rebates to people for switching to electric vehicles. In the US, President Biden has declared USD 7.51 billion for an EV charging infrastructure network. In California, the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project offers electric car incentives of up to USD 7000 on the latest EVs. The UK government renders a USD 3,480 discount on new electric vehicles under USD 48,760.
