Video: 2020 Polestar 2 UK review | Better than a Tesla Model 3?
Is this high-riding, 402bhp EV a contender for the Tesla Model 3’s crown? We find out on UK tarmac
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?
