The 2020 Polestar 2 is Polestar's first full battery electric vehicle. It follows the (imaginatively named) Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid, but is a rather more accessible and practical saloon (or sedan, depending on where you live prefer).

The 2 costs around £46,000 in the UK, and its two motors give it a total of 402bhp - so it's able to take on fast versions of the Tesla Model 3. A 0-62mph time of just 4.7sec means it has acceleration to spare. And its range is a very competitive 292 miles.

We loved the Polestar 1, and there are similar nerdy, geeky bits in the Polestar 2's suspension as well. But how will it stack up against its 2020 EV competitors like the Tesla Model 3, or even Audi's E-tron?

This chinese built car, better than a Tesla? I don't even know why such a reputable website like Autocar would buy into this type of hype.This car is filled with botnets to be used by China to spy on people.Give it a miss, buy the I-Pace or wait till teslas start rolling out of Germany.

If Tesla builds cars in Europe it doesn't mean they'll be of a better build quality. The design is flawed from the start. Millions have bought into the Tesla hype.

P.S. I'm not a fan of Chinese built cars but at least the Polestar was designed by experienced engineers in Sweden.

... probably has much to do with it's all steel construction. Steel is cheaper relatively speaking than composite materials but the flaw is more weight.

Though I'm a Tesla fan, I really hope this car does well. The more EVs that we have the better.

Wouldn't have a Tesla, would have one of these. If I were in the market, which I'm not.
