eMobility News: Volvo’s First All-Electric Car 'Polestar 2' Is Set to Rival Tesla Model 3

Volvo is making headlines with recently released specs about its upcoming Polestar 2, including a 350-mile range on the entry model.

Volvo's latest EV is causing a stir, especially among those disenchanted with the up-and-down news surrounding the Tesla Model 3. The company's first EV, the Polestar 2 could have the performance and pricepoint readily available to convince Model 3 buyers on the wait list to reconsider.

The electric vehicle costs between $39,400 to $65,700 (or £30,000 to £50,000). It has roughly 400 brake horsepower and an impressive 350-mile range found on its entry-level variations. Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Goodman talked to Autocar about the potentially unique position of the car within the EV industry.

Talking about that 350-mile range of the entry-level model, Goodman said: "That will represent the lower ‘bookend’ of our showroom range and, for now, it should give us as much access to the volume end of the EV market as we need." 

The Polestar 2 is set to debut in 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show next March. Many Volvo fans expect it to have similar features as the 40.2 concept car.
