The most expensive mass-produced EV currently on sale in the United States is the 2023 Porsche Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo, which starts at $190,000 MSRP.
For this outlay, owners will get an EV that sprints to 60mph in 2.6 seconds and hits a top speed of 162 mph, along with all of the premium appointments that come with purchasing a Porsche.
For affluent EV buyers more focused on range, the Lucid Air Sapphire Edition is positioned to take Porsche’s crown as the most expensive electric car in the near future. The Sapphire will start at an eye-watering $250,000, which nets the owner range of 400+ miles, and potentially double what the Taycan achieves on the EPA test cycle.
The Lucid is also expected to eclipse the Taycan Turbo S in terms of performance, with a rumored 1,200+ HP aimed at delivering sub-2-second sprints to 60 mph and a top speed in excess of 200 mph.
