The Model S competes against other luxury EVs, though none of the others can match its straight-line speed.

The 2022 Lucid Air offers compelling range and efficiency in a more luxurious package.

If you want the most luxurious interior in the segment however, go for the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS that comes with an available hyperscreen that matches the Model S in size.

While BMW offers the i4 sedan, its 2022 iX is a more apt comparison with good cargo room and a minimally styled interior of its own.

The 2022 Porsche Taycan and 2022 Audi E-Tron GT offer less passenger room, but impressive performance in their own right.
