Polestar 2 — 2019
After many years as Volvo’s performance arm, Polestar became a standalone electrified performance brand with the debut of the high-performance Polestar 1 coupe in 2018. At the 2019 Geneva show Polestar debuted the all-electric Polestar 2 — a volume model aimed squarely at the Tesla Model 3. Designed as a 5-door fastback, the Polestar 2 is built on Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture platform that integrates the battery pack into the floor for improved chassis rigidity and reductions in noise, vibration and harshness. Polestar 2 is equipped with two electric motors driving all four wheels. Total output is a healthy 408 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of torque. Polestar 2 certainly stands out from the crowd with its frameless side mirrors, unique LED headlights, proximity lighting and illuminated Polestar logo.
