Electrification has taken the automotive world by storm, and despite their increased prices, they become more popular by the day. Be it electric, hybrid, or plug-in, electrified cars are becoming serious competitors on the market. Their technology improves by the day, the range gets better, and the amount of power delivered puts them in the same line as the ICE-powered vehicles. There are, however, electric cars out there that are affordable and can be bought even by those on a limited budget, but there are also electric cars that have a huge price. For the right money, cars like the Spectre or the Celestiq are the definition of luxury, but when you are willing to pay millions, you can also get cars with amazing performance figures. Here’s a list of 10 most expensive electric cars in the world today.
10 Lucid Air Sapphire – $249,000

Unveiled in 2022 and set to go on sale in 2023, the Lucid Air Sapphire is aimed straight at the heart of Tesla.
