Electric vehicles take the driving experience up a notch, especially in the luxury sector. However, the internal combustion engine, even the quietest one, still makes its presence known when accelerating.
Shifting gears are also noticeable and can bring bumps.
Both of these are issues that EV owners don’t have to deal with. Electric vehicle manufacturers know that the drivetrain of electric vehicles already brings a luxurious experience. The reason for adding to this luxury experience is that some EV manufacturers are creating amazing vehicle interiors to complement the sublime driving characteristics of electric motors.
1. BMW i7
The BMW i7 is an electric car focused on luxury and probably the best interior a modern vehicle has ever seen. The materials are top-notch throughout, but there are also some new luxuries that you won’t find in vehicle interiors.
Glass can be used freely throughout the interior, especially in what BMW calls an interaction bar. It’s a huge bar that spans the entire front cabin and has tons of features. Not only does it control many functions, but it also looks great.
The surface of the interaction bar is touch-sensitive, and you can control things like hazard lights (which illuminate the entire light in crimson when activated), and you can even open doors by simply tapping on the glass surface.
It’s cool to see that the car is not only luxurious but also bold in its choice of materials. The glass décor may not be to everyone’s taste, and at worst, it can be a bit clunky, but there’s no denying that it’s cool.
The huge display on the front extends from the driver’s side to the HVAC controls. But this display is not the most impressive display in the car. Instead, the honor goes to the crown jewel of the interior, the optional 31-inch BMW Theatre screen.
This huge screen transfers your living room entertainment system to the rear screen of the vehicle, but the seats are much better. Admittedly, this is the most luxurious experience you can have, enjoying the massage features of the rear seats while watching the built-in Amazon Fire TV.
There is also a theater mode that closes the curtains and panoramic skylight so that you can enjoy the movie in true cinematic way.
2. Mercedes-Benz EQS Sedan
The Mercedes-Benz EQS is another ultra-luxurious German electric car sedan that is eye-catching with its stunning interior. Like BMW, the build quality is amazing, but Mercedes has distinguished itself with a huge display (it’s actually three displays under one piece of glass), known as Ultra Screen.
If you like futuristic interiors, it doesn’t get much better than this. Mercedes has taken the opposite approach to luxury that Tesla would take. Tesla is all about minimalism, but Mercedes throws minimalism out the window and goes all out for excess and luxury.
Some of Hyperscreen’s displays feature OLED technology with amazing contrast. In EQS sedans, even passengers have a dedicated screen, which should be standard on more vehicles.
Through the passenger display, non-drivers can access great features such as controlling broadcasts and adjusting ambient lighting. If you’re looking for a traditional Mercedes interior that incorporates super futuristic technology, then this is the perfect electric car for you.
3. Tesla Model S Plaid
Model S Plaid is very fast; We all know it now. However, the Model S Plaid offers far more than its top speed of 1,000 horsepower and 200 mph.
Plaid has made great strides in interior decoration and decoration. Tesla’s interior quality has been criticized, and Plaid is not immune (ornaments on yoke steering units are reported to deteriorate rapidly). Still, it’s definitely a beautiful space.
If you’re buying a Model S Plaid, the ultra-white vegan leather upholstery is a must. It may not be the easiest interior to keep clean, but this color pairs perfectly with Tesla’s minimalist theme.
The white color contrasts perfectly with the black accents in the interior, especially the futuristic yoke. You can even play games on Tesla’s big screen, which is a super neat feature. Overall, Tesla is a leader in what you might call futuristic luxury.
4. Hummer EV
If you like legendary vehicles, it’s impossible not to know the Hummer EV. Its interior is also an amazing place, with a lot of unique decorations that give a rugged sense of luxury.
The Hummer has an interior theme called Lunar Horizon, and it’s beautiful, although Tech Bronze’s décor looks a bit flashy. But what’s really cool is that the Hummer can combine rugged practicality with luxury, a unique luxury like no other.
For example, the Hummer EV features a heavy-duty floor lining with a lunar theme in its design. As a result, it looks super cool, and you don’t have to worry about cleaning the carpet when off-road. Other cool designs include a lunar surface-inspired design on the speaker grille that adds a futuristic touch to the interior.
5. Lucid Air
Lucid Air is a direct competitor to Tesla’s Model S, but the interiors of both cars take a completely different approach to luxury. Tesla is a minimalist dream, and the interior is cold and futuristic.
The Lucid Air, on the other hand, is warm and even a little retro. The key card is lined with a very luxurious fabric to create a cozy atmosphere. Another amazing feature of Lucid’s interior that is increasingly rare in luxury cars is the actual buttons for A/C fan speed, as well as the physical dial for radio volume.
These two things are indispensable in car interiors, and automakers need to realize that no matter how futuristic the interior they try to build, touch-sensitive surfaces are a bad way to adjust radio volume and fan speed.
So the addition of these physical controls really brings fresh air to the field dominated by touch screens. Another amazing aspect of the Lucid Air’s interior is the different hue of the front seats than the rear seats.
This unique touch gives the Lucid Air interior personality, which is very rare in the automotive world.
Electric vehicles are revolutionizing luxury interiors
Electric vehicles take luxury to the next level when it comes to driving experience, and EV manufacturers are also creating some of the best interiors for modern cars.
