The Polestar 2 will be the number 1?

what does the "Electric Avenue": in addition to many small electrical the VW ID is likely to dare.3 at least in the Golf-class set new standards. However, the typical middle class is still with Diesel or petrol engine, or in the best case, with a Plug-in hybrid drive on the road. However, at a comparable price to be the end of the year all-electric on the road with the Polestar 2. But the switch to the Swedish-Chinese Stromer's worth it or remains Tesla but more the measure of all things?

57'900 Swiss francs, the Polestar offers 2 all-wheel drive, a 78-kWh battery, which brings the car in 4.7 seconds from zero to hundred and according to the WLTP Standard has a range of 470 miles. In pure city operation, it will be due to the energy recovery during braking, even up to 560 kilometers.

Impressive suspension

In the case of the test round in the Swedish Hällered of the Polestar 2 rolls first through a hole in the runway. Channel cover, Reduce, cracks in the roadway bearing in mind the fact that the electric car has no engine is naturally sound, you can hear in the interior of the vehicle, nothing. No Creaking, Rattling, Squeaking. In Hällered test center, you have recreated the original coverings of streets from all over the world. A real test of endurance to around five kilometres on Scottish smooth slopes, and German washing concrete – the Stromer swallows every bump with flying colors. Not a lateral move, not a Break out.

of Course, the Volvo subsidiary, cannot deny its origin. Polestar, the Motorsport division of Sweden once was. Only in 2017, its own brand, the first electric cars of the group should arise from it. All this happened with the blessing of Geely, the Chinese parent company of Volvo. The Polestar 2 is also based on the electrical architecture of Geely, is built in the car until further notice, only in China. Nevertheless, the Polestar should keep on one side of his athletic genes and on the other hand, possible for everyday use to be.

the first vehicle of the Stromer with the Android operating system, the Automotive is delivered.

Actually, the sedan covers the needs of many motorists. Four people can also travel on long distances comfortably, only five adults and it would have more closely. What is the Polestar is definitely not: a miracle of Storage space. The two trunks front and rear, summarize 440 litres, which prevents slanted rear, you can also bring in higher objects. But the Polestar 2 has a trailer hitch that you can pull up to 1500 pounds.

To the everyday usability of electric cars in the first place, the question of range and charging options. After the test drive on the Volvo site, you can make any kind of statement to the real power consumption (according to the manufacturer of 19.3 kWh), since it's behaviour there in the first line driver and the interior of the car went. Polestar, in turn, indicates that the trolley can be loaded with up to 150 kW, in about forty minutes, the battery should be filled to 80 percent. The can just) a few models are faster, for example, Tesla's Model 3 (up to 250 kW) or Porsche Taycan (270 kW.

A crucial difference to the competitors is the Polestar deep under the sheet. The first vehicle of the Stromer with the Android operating system, the Automotive is delivered. In the Polestar 2, a Software-the heart of Google suggests so. A personalized Google Account, the car is completely included in everything that the user uses other services of the tech group. You can download Apps from the Playstore, Google Maps knows the charge level of the battery, and taken into account when planning a route directly possible charging stops. If the charging station supports this function, you will also see whether the charging station is free. Anyone who has networked his home with Google Home, you can operate by voice from the living room, certain car functions. But the Polestar you can drive without Google everything, but then a few of the amenities will be lost.

engine will not be limited

to test the Tesla comparison is still a bit: In the Polestar operation smart is not solved, because it is simply so radical. Where appropriate, there is in Sweden a couple of buttons, and also the digital Cockpit behind the steering Wheel is more practical than the complete on the Central Touchscreen-oriented control in Model 3. Although Tesla in terms of workmanship and material appearance are concerned, is already much better than some of the traditionalists like it, but here, too, the Polestar's advance is still a good piece.

A little unreasonable the Polestar developers were allowed to be. On the high speed oval chief engineer Joakim Rydholm throws the Stromer in the steep curve. 150, 180, 215 the speedometer shows. Wait, wasn't there? Wanted Volvo down-regulation of all its cars in the future, at 180 km/h electronically? Rydholm grins and says dryly: "It's not a Volvo. It's a Polestar."
