3. Lucid Air Dream Edition


Luxury takes center stage with the Lucid Air, a sedan offering a record-breaking 516-mile range. With an interior described as a mansion, it's no wonder this EV has drivers buzzing. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds, and its massaging seats and bi-level trunks add to its opulent appeal.
