Most expensive car ever for me too. The Norwegian authorities are quite heavy handed, both in terms of financial disincentives to buying and running whatever they decide at the time is a bad environmental choice, and incentives to buy and run whatever is seen politically as the best choice. This can badly affect used car values, and is also the reason why Norway has the highest adoption of EV's in the world.
Four years ago, we we scared into/decided to migrate from diesel to Electric, but at the time there was no BEV available that was remotely in budget and that suited our needs. We're a one car family and occasionally take long trips, sometimes in bad wintry conditions over mountains, so the car has to have reasonably good range and handle winter conditions well.
We leased a stop-gap PHEV, to allow the BEV selection to improve. The PHEV spoiled us a bit as it's a more premium car that we had been used to and "poshing-up" is always easier than "poshing down". Long story short, 4-wheel drive became a requirement and the choice boiled down to Tesla 3 or Polestar 2. Having driven both, I can say that the Tesla impressed in terms of BEV technology, but the Polestar was far better at just about everything else. It also has paint that covers the whole car and the bonnet (hood) and doors sit flush where they're supposed to. Most importantly, I found it far more relaxing to drive.
Taking it on a 1200km winter run, right at the end of last winter clinched it for me. It's by far the best winter car I have ever driven and the charging stops were no problem at all in practice. Even adding the extra hour each way for charging, I arrived far more relaxed than I had in previous cars. It's the car that ticks most boxes, so as long as we can make the monthly repayments, the choice is easy.
As a side note, the price of electricity in Norway is in the process of quadrupling, so it may well be that all we can afford to do when we get it is to admire it as it sits in the garage!
