Volvo’s spin-off Polestar brand teases fully electric Tesla Model 3 rival

Volvo’s spin-off Polestar teased an image of its Polestar 2 early January, a future fully electric four-door fastback with impressive specifications that, as you might expect, will follow its Polestar 1 hybrid sports car.

The Polestar 2 will be the first fully electric vehicle from the automaker’s just-launched electric performance arm, and will feature 400 horsepower and 482 kilometres of range on a fully charged battery.

While this is still around 10 km less than the Tesla Model 3 Long Range, it’s 130 km more than the standard Model 3.

The teaser image doesn’t show much, except for the beautiful sweeping lines of the rear bodywork; and an awesome full-width taillight section.

The car will come with Google Android HMI, which is basically Google Assistant for your car. The Polestar 2’s launch will also mark the global debut of the Google product.

All the information Polestar’s put out so far is subject to change, but at least it gives us a good idea of what realm the vehicle will be in.

The Polestar 2 will be made available via a premium subscription service, but cash sales are also available.

The price will apparently be on par with that of the Tesla Model 3, which is very impressive considering the specifications. You can expect to see orders open up after the Polestar 1 launches; that car starts production later in 2019.
