2020 Polestar 2 EV

The Polestar 2 debuts at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.

As per reports, the Polestar 2 and Model 3 segment is relatively cheaper than most of the electric models launched by premium carmakers, mainly because Polestar and Tesla anticipate growing adoption of battery technology from mass market customers.

Sporting signature Polestar gold seat belts, the Polestar 2 will cost about €59,900 (2.1 million baht) for its launch edition and can be driven for around 275 miles before it needs recharging - broadly in line with the Model 3's current price in Europe of €58,800and about 260 miles range.

Volvo now has its own Tesla competitor, the Polestar 2.

Polestar has unveiled its first fully-electric sports vehicle - the Polestar 2 - with an explicit plan to take on Elon Musk.

To get you up to speed, Polestar is Volvo's performance arm, sort of like the Scandy version of BMW's M division or Merc's AMG. Even more importantly, that figure won't break the bank for the average performance vehicle buyer. In the run up to the public reveal in less than a week, official images and details of the Polestar 2 have been released on the internet.

The Polestar 2 features twin electric motors and a 78kWh battery capacity which, according to Polestar, enables a single-charge range of 500km. Zero to 60 in less than five seconds, thanks to all-wheel drive, 408 horsepower, and 487 lb-ft. of torque. Polestar says this contributes to the rigidity of the auto and improves noise, vibration and harshness levels.

The optional Performance Pack adds Ohlins dampers, Brembo brakes and unique 20-inch forged wheels to the 2's package.

The system is projected onto an 11.0-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen, which forms part of the entirely vegan interior.

This new Polestar 2 is a very interesting vehicle. Polestar says the system makes for a "solid and adaptable" platform for apps and vehicle functions, as well as enabling the inclusion of Google services such as Google Maps and the Google Assistant. Polestar owners auto use their cars for vehicle sharing, pick-up or deliver items because of the integration of smartphone-based services. Smart features like enlarged graphics in the instrument cluster allow the driver to easily see the charging status and range before entering the auto.

The Polestar 2 will go into production next year at the company's factory in China, and the auto will only be available online.

The Polestar 2 is now available for online ordering and will have a price range from Euro 39,900 - 59,900. The polestar spaces will offer test drives as well.
