Volvo’s Polestar 2 is a dual motor, 275-mile, 78 kWh Tesla Model 3 competitor



The Polestar 2, a highly anticipated all-electric vehicle from Volvo’s high-performance brand, was formally unveiled on Wednesday. The vehicle is the first all-electric car from the business, and is expected to compete on the same segment as Tesla’s best-selling Model 3.

The specs of the Polestar two are certainly comparable to the Model 3, with the vehicle being equipped with dual motors that produce 408 hp, allowing the electric car to go from 0-60 mph in under 5 minutes. The Polestar 2 can be equipped with a pack using cells from LG Chem, which give the vehicle an estimated range of 275 mph. 

Particularly impressive with all the Polestar 2 is its integration with Google’s Android ecosystem. The automobile ’s interior is dominated by an 11 oriented touchscreen packed with an Android-powered infotainment system which includes notable apps such as Google Music, Google Videos, and Google Maps. Google Assistant, one of the voice assistants on the market, can be enabled on the vehicle.

Very similar to the Tesla Model 3, Polestar will offer a Performance package for your car, including equipment such as Öhlins dampers, Brembo brakes, and 20-inch wheels. The base model of the Polestar 2 is expected to start at $45,000, while the version is expected to cost around $68,000. For the Polestar two ’s initial production run, the business will only be creating a “Launch Edition” of the vehicle, which costs $63,000.

In a statement, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath stated that the Polestar 2 represents a notable step for the business. The CEO also assured would-be clients the Polestar 2 would be a great vehicle to own and drive.

“Polestar 2 is our first car and volume model. Everything about it has been designed and engineered with dedication and passion. And through the launch of a portfolio of fully cars, Polestar is determined to cover the world’s air quality challenges. Polestar delivers electric performance cars which are great to own and drive,” he said.

The Polestar 2 appears to be an impressive vehicle. While its estimated generation that’s “north of 50,000” units annually represents just a portion of Tesla’s Model 3 outputsignal, the vehicle does provide a wonderful balance between price and features to make it a compelling purchase. In a way, the Polestar 2 could be dubbed as a threat to premium gasoline-powered cars, considering that it offers the best of auto in an electric bundle that was uncompromisingly.

The Polestar 2 could ultimately be the first real alternative to the Model 3, particularly as the prices of both vehicles are quite comparable. The Polestar two ’s $45,000 base version, for one, can be an competitor to the Mid Range Model 3, which costs $42,900 prior to incentives. The Polestar two ’s $63,000 Launch Edition, on the other hand, could establish itself as a challenger to Tesla’s Model 3 Performance, which costs $.
