Previously, we’ve covered the most expensive electric vehicles on the road in 2021, and focused on consumer-grade vehicles you’re more likely to actually see on the road.

While we’d argue that original list pertains more to the most expensive vehicles to reach series production for consumers, we heard you. Now, you also have a list of the most expensive electric vehicles that exist on planet Earth, regardless if they’re actually available for sale. Enjoy.
