Polestar 2 brings fight to Tesla Model 3

Polestar 2

"Polestar 2 is our first fully electric auto and first volume model", said Thomas Ingenlath, the chief executive officer of Polestar. "Everything about it has been designed and engineered with passion and dedication", said the company's CEO Thomas Ingenlath. Rather than flying in journalists from around the world to show off a zero-emissions electric vehicle, Polestar stuck with its image as a "digital brand" and Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath unveiled the Polestar 2 online, which was streamed live on the company's website.

Polestar, the electric performance-arm of Volvo, has just unveiled the new Polestar 2, which is positioned below the flagship Polestar 1.

The Polestar 2, aimed directly at the Tesla Model 3, has an expected range of 440km and boasts a 78 kWh battery pack.

Customers can opt for the performance pack which adds Brembo brakes, Ohlins dampers and large 20-inch forged alloy wheels along with gold seat belts, brake callipers and valve caps to the Polestar 2.

"As an electric performance brand, and through the forthcoming launch of a portfolio of fully electric cars, Polestar is determined to address the world's air quality challenges".

I thought we did quite well. "There are still three big competitions to play for and I hope they can win all of them". With Everton pushing their full-backs on, both he and Salah should offer a serious goalscoring threat.

Polestar insists performance is a great deal of the brand's identity, stating the all-wheel drive electric powertrain will propel the Polestar 2 to 100km/h in less than 5 seconds thanks to the 300kW and 660Nm outputs.

Android powers the infotainment system, providing drivers and passengers with a highly connected experience complete with the Google Assistant, Google Maps, and the Google Play Store which can either be accessed by natural voice control or via an 11-inch touch screen.

-The second product from the newly established Polestar brand. Further tech, such as numerous connected services and the facility to use your smartphone as a vehicle key, also feature. As the driver approaches the vehicle, the smartphone app shows battery status, range, and the time remaining to a full charge.

Built on the modular CMA architecture as the XC40, the Polestar 2 has the battery pack mounted on the floor for optimal centre of gravity and weight distribution along with increase in chassis rigidity. Our avant-garde design has evolved from Polestar 1 into an edgier, bolder statement. Further, Polestar's signature frameless ORVMs and its unique illuminated Polestar logo (reflected on to the car's panoramic glass roof) add a stylish flair to an otherwise practical vehicle design. "And with Polestar 2 we bring an exciting premium electric vehicle that will broaden the choice on offer in exactly this segment". Pre-orders are open now on the marque's website.

The design may look familiar to those who have been following the developments around the company's first vehicle, the Polestar 1 hybrid-GT but applied to a crossover-ish liftback.
