Polestar 2 is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show

As the second Polestar model, the Polestar 2 is positioned as a four-door hatchback, so the Polestar 1 may look closer to the 40.2 Concept concept that Volvo exhibited for the S40 a few years ago. Just as Polestar 1 is basically based on the S90, Polestar 2 will also have more or less contact with the Volvo 40 series, based on the CMA platform developed in cooperation with Geely.

However, the Polestar 2 will be powered by pure electric and will have a larger capacity battery pack that can provide a cruising range of approximately 460km. The maximum power is expected to reach 400 hp and may be equipped with a standard or optional four-wheel drive system. But whether it is cruising range or power is not finalized, these are the minimum guarantees of Polestar.

Polestar 2 sets Tesla Model 3 as its direct competitor, so it will be very close to Model 3 in the price range. More advanced than Model 3 and Tesla, Polestar 2 will use Google Android-based car system and Google AI products such as Google Voice Assistant, which is the first in the automotive industry to carry Google's original Android car system. Car.

In addition, Polestar will use a material that is completely different from Polestar 1 in this second model because of the difference in product design, and it is said that the material is “very unique and has not appeared in the market yet”, this is another crane. The place where we appetite. And in terms of appearance they are more inclined to traditional design, and will not be too radical. CMO Jonathan Goodman doesn't think electric cars should look very "future". If you want to be in mainstream products, you need to look like other cars. Greg Hembrough, head of Polestar North America, said that the design of Jaguar I-Pace is very "polarized" and the results are different, but Polestar 2 will still adhere to the Nordic design style to avoid such controversy.
