  • What about the turning radius? I have a Model 3 AWD; turning radius not so great...apparently the price you pay for motor in the front.

  • $65,000 car with a cheap plastic looking key fob, crappy looking infotainment screen on a portrait 2012 Amazon fire tablet with huge bezels and a Windows Mobile looking OS. I'll stick with my Tesla that starts at $20-30,000 less.

  • In the EU the Polestar is more compelling because it costs 44.390€ (Long Range) while the I can´t find the Tesla model S on the configurator anymore and the Dual Motor max Range variant costs twice as much.

  • "Maybe" the Polestar 2 costs more than the Tesla Model3 because it has the interiors of an actual car and the quality is light years ahead of Testa. In the Model 3 you get sits, the most crappy horrible steering wheel on the planet and an IPad. Thats all.

    Mr. G.Mr. G.Pred 10 dnevi
  • Good car, bad price for what you get. Hopefully, it will come down to sub $46K to become competitive, and the range will go up by the same percentage.

  • The gold accents are part of the performance pack. The infotainment is by Google (android automotive). Since a recent software update you can ditch the keys completely and unlock the car with your phone.

  • I like some of the features but to me this car is DEO for these 3 main reasons, price, battery range and rear leg room. I am not a big fan of not having instrumentation right in front of the driver with the Model 3 and Y but for everything else offered in comparison why would you buy the Polestar? Gold seatbelts?

  • The extra money you spend on the Polestar 2, is basically for build quality. If you compare that to any Tesla, a Tesla isn't even worth 20k. The panel gaps, materials used and so on is just horrible. The moment you step in a Polestar 2, you immediately know where the price difference comes from.

    • @ThatCarGuy2 Absolutely... right . One of my friend boasting about his newly bought Tesla and talking bad about my Honda .... Few days later he cams to me and asking if he can borrow my car for few days. Lol 😝. I asked why !??? He said his landlord refused to install charger in his house. He was renting a room there. LMAO..😂. Had to go to find charging station to charge his Tesla. And there are only few charging stations in Canada ( Toronto). Had a job interview but his Tesla was out of charge . Next day I asked sarcastically.... “ hey bud . How’s your new Tesla??” Lol 😂

  • Wait so your telling me as of today anyways this car that starts at $60K and has a range of 235 miles on a charge when the Tesla Model 3 with pretty much all extra bells and whistles would be around $60K but with a range of 320 miles??? That's a big difference and so idk if it comes close to competing with model 3 maybe the model S but even then the range is not comparable to even want to purchase it lol
