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.

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.
