Polestar 2 review: verdict
The new Polestar 2 is quite an achievement. Volvo decided to spin off the company as a standalone unit to rival Tesla - a progressive, performance brand highly attuned to the zeitgeist. And those values feel on point in 2020, as we all question our way of living in these post-pandemic times and we predict positive interest in Polestar’s vegan interiors, clean-fuel EV status and focus on low environmental impact.

The 2 scores more highly than the Tesla Model 3 on quality and many will prefer the reassurance of an established parent company, but Polestar can’t match Elon Musk’s proprietary charging infrastructure and evangelical following. Which would we pick? The Polestar 2 is a more mature product (despite hailing from a brand even newer than Tesla) and delighted us with its interior, its slick drive and all-round package. Pick the Tesla if you want greater choice of powertrains, range and price - not to mention outright performance and an own-brand charging network - but the Polestar will be a more exclusive, intelligent purchase and one that we’d back long term to make proper inroads into the growing EV marketplace.
