Three exciting luxury electric vehicles coming soon
Many buzzwords catch on within the automotive industry and spread like wildfire. Notable mentions include ‘Autonomous driving’ and ‘Electrification’ amongst many others. While autonomous driving seems to still be rather controversial, the concept of electrification is catching on very quickly with infrastructural support. Additionally, companies are addressing two key challenges - range (how far can one drive on a single charge) and charging time. A significant amount of research and support has helped improve electric cars which were revealed in 2018. We have narrowed down three such luxury electric vehicles from 2018.
