EXCLUSIVE: first test Polestar 2 – Trade in the Tesla Model 3!


The Polestar 2 is the major threat to the Tesla Model 3. That conclusion is drawn by Autovision test editor Peter Hilhorst after a very exclusive test with the fully electric Swede.

The Polestar 2 has 408 hp, four-wheel drive, a battery pack of 78 kWh, an expected range of 470 kilometers, can charge a maximum of 150 kW and the price is 59,800 euros. The Tesla Model 3 competitor feels luxury, exclusive and really radiates Scandinavian design from. The interior has a finish for which the minimalist Model 3 must bow its head. But is it enough?


The Polestar 2 is the second model after the 600 hp plug-in hybrid coupe Polestar 1 with which it was launched as the Volvo sub brand. That Polestar 1 is now being built in China in a circulation of a maximum of 1500 pieces spread over three years. With a price of 150,000 euros an image builder, but the Polestar 2 is a realistic model. The fully electric five-door fastback has to roll from another factory in China in a circulation of 60,000 copies. Later there will also be an electric SUV to further put the brand on the map.


The production of the Polestar 2 is about to start, but it is not inconceivable that the corona virus will cause a delay. If everything goes according to plan, the first 2s must be delivered in June or July in the Netherlands. With a price of 59,800 euros, he is right in the price spectrum of the Tesla Model 3 and the agreements do not end there.
