Polestar 2 (2020): At A Glance

The Polestar 1 is a five-door all-electric fastback set to take on the Tesla Model 3.

Production of the compact electric car is set to start early in 2020, with prices of the launch edition model starting at €59,900 (around £51,000). After the first 12 months on sale, an entry-level model will be introduced for €39,900 (£34,000).

It has two electric motors and a 78 kWh battery that will provide a range of around 310 miles. Based on Volvo’s adaptable Compact Modular Architecture platform (CMA), the Polestar 2 will have a 27-module battery pack integrated into the floor. This contributes to the rigidity of the chassis as well as improves the car’s noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels – road noise has been reduced by 3.7 dB compared to a traditional chassis, says the brand.

The all-wheel drive electric powertrain in the Polestar 2 produces 408PS and 660Nm of torque. This translates to a 0-62mph acceleration time of less than 5 seconds.

In common with all Polestar cars, the Polestar 2 will only be available for ordering online.
