For me, one of the most helpful ways to understand the difference is about the original vision for Tesla, which someone else on this forum has mentioned. Elon’s ultimate goal is to build a driverless car, which helps explain the way the car is designed - it’s not about the driver experience, it’s about being an efficient people mover. Credit to him for having more impact on the transition to electric cars to date than any other brand, and for making EVs cool. The Polestar has a completely different aspiration, in which the driver experience is central and fundamental. I appreciate what Elon’s done, but I’ll take the Polestar (if one happens to be available any time soon).
