Volvos Polestar teases allelectric sedan calls it a competitor for Tesla Model

first_imgSource: Electrek Source: Electric Vehicles Magazine Yeah, yeah – the media describes every new vehicle with an electric motor as a Tesla competitor, even if it’s a scooter or a bulldozer. However, not every automaker dares to call out Tesla by name, so let’s give Polestar points for audacity.Polestar, Volvo’s performance-cum-electric brand, has released an image of its upcoming all-electric Polestar 2 sedan, and described it as a Tesla Model 3 competitor.Polestar announced its first vehicle, the Polestar 1, two years ago, a good-looking but expensive PHEV. We’ve heard little about it since, but Polestar now says that it will enter production later this year.Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath told Electrek that the Polestar 2, which will be unveiled “in the coming weeks,” will be a low-volume car that will go into production in 2020 with a starting price around €40,000 ($49,300).This first pure EV from Polestar and Volvo will be a four-door fastback body style, with around 300 miles of range and 400 hp of power. It will be “available on subscription.”“We are not saying it’s a Tesla killer [but] we are here to vividly compete with them in the market,” Ingenlath said.last_img read more
