Until Tesla came out with its Model S, electric vehicles were never thought of as fully viable replacements for gasoline-powered vehicles, and they didn't have much appeal beyond their potential eco-conscious benefits. Today, though, the 2018 Tesla Model S boasts tremendous acceleration, cutting-edge tech, and an electric range that now resembles that of a gasoline car. It's well-suited for just about any luxury vehicle buyer, not just EV converts.

PROS
Electric range is impressive on higher-end models
Wicked quick acceleration across the board
Liftback design affords abundant cargo space
Advanced technology unavailable from other luxury brands

CONS
Small dealer network means few service centers nationwide
Lacks the luxury polish of some similarly priced sedans
