The Polestar 2 Is a Tesla-Rivaling Electric Luxury Sport Sedan


Polestar 2 review!!! The Polestar 2 is a new electric luxury sport sedan, designed to rival the Tesla Model 3 and others. Today I'm reviewing the Polestar 2 and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the newest EV luxury sedan on the market. I'll also drive the Polestar 2 and review the driving experience.

    18:28 Sure but with the Tesla you get all those issues of fitment and little things that break and there isn't a dealership to take it to. Both are still double my price range but if I had to choose, I would get the Polestar because it comes from a company that has been building quality vehicles for a very long time. Tesla gets the credit for getting everyone to finally go electric and save our planet.

    Only doug would compare two vehicles using the incorrect prices. The only time you get the gold seatbelts is with the performance package that starts at $71,400

    Better interior? Interior materials look as cheap and crappy as Tesla’s. 0-60 in 5 secs is not fast for an electric vehicle trying to compete. Does it have a realistic charging infrastructure? The infrastructure is literally the most significant factor holding back electric vehicles not named Tesla from competing despite Doug surprising oversight of this. Even with a good deal, the lack of infrastructure is a notable dealbreaker for many.

    -Completely fails to mention that is has the first infotainment system in the world that runs Android Auto OS. I'd say that is a pretty significant quirk and/or feature. -"These systems have been catching up to Tesla...Polestar arguably has better tech" doesn't compare or even mention the self-driving capabilities of either the Polestar or Tesla _at all_ (!!!) which is arguably _the most_ important differentiating software feature. -Doesn't mention safety rating at all... reviewing a _Volvo_ ... comparing it to current car safety leader Tesla. very poorly researched review imo... and inexplicably you still arrive at a higher rating than the Model 3 even though you repeatedly say the Model 3 is a better overall car!

    The standard AWD in the Polestar 2 is a more valuable asset than the performance package in Model 3. You are not comparing apples to apples instead you are comparing it to the Longer-Range AWD Model 3 with the Performance Package and that is Not cheaper than the Standard Polestar 2. However, a few things I don't like about the car are the bulky sloped center console, the weird shifter that should just be discreet buttons, the lack of storage in the armrest, the cloth seats, and the cramped back seats. These things keep the Polestar 2 from being a real competitor with the Model 3 or Y not to mention the Lack of Autopilot.

    Gold is the performance edition. And it has the adjustable Bilstein dampers so it corners better than the Model 3. I've lowered our P2 and the handling is comparable to my VW CC (also on coilovers). I definetely prefer it over the Tesla plus the dealer support network is better with Polestar.

    In many ways, I think the 2018 S60 Polestar is a way better car. Most people just think it's just a regular S60 and it only makes them inquisitive when you put your foot down. Also, I consistently get around 375 miles (605km) of range on 17.2gal (65L) of gas (might be better if you have one without a carbon splitter in the front and the extended ducktail spoiler), and I once clocked it at 0-62 in 4.5s on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. The rear seats also fold down and I'm 6'2" and I have plenty of legroom in the back. Lastly, nothing beats the whine of a supercharger coupled with the gusts of a turbo. See? It's a way better car. Who knows what the designers at Volvo were even thinking.
