Polestar 2 review!!! The Polestar 2 is a new electric luxury sport sedan, designed to rival the Tesla Model 3 and others. Today I'm reviewing the Polestar 2 and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the newest EV luxury sedan on the market. I'll also drive the Polestar 2 and review the driving experience.

    Always funny to see the triggered anti-EV crowd lose their sh!t over every positive EV review. Laughing at triggered Tesla fanboys gets old, so it's nice to laugh at triggered ICE fanboys every now and then.

    I immediately stopped watching as soon as I noticed a hump on rear floor . Very annoying. Electric car should have flat rear floor just like Tesla. And my lovely Honda Civic 2015 :))) I know it’s not electric but I love my Honda :)

    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

    Polestar 2 has an iPad mini on the dash - the Tesla 3 has a 14" monitor on a stand in the middle of the windshield. Neither of these look like they belong there.

    I prefer regular hard buttons and switches for climate controls. I don’t need to take my eyes off the road nearly as often or as long to adjust anything. Most IC cars still have them, even though they now have touch screen for other functions. Much safer.

    The car looks amazing, and I'm in love with the yellow accents, I don't remember anyone else doing it and it makes it look really unique. Also it might be a pretty smart detail, because the yellow seatbelts are gonna say "Polestar" in every single frontal camera photo that is taken inside of the car. Basically every single selfie in the car is going to have "heyy I'm driving a Polestar" ingrained in it. What a great move for them.

    18:28 Sure but with the Tesla you get all those issues of fitment and little things that break and there isn't a dealership to take it to. Both are still double my price range but if I had to choose, I would get the Polestar because it comes from a company that has been building quality vehicles for a very long time. Tesla gets the credit for getting everyone to finally go electric and save our planet.

    Better interior? Interior materials look as cheap and crappy as Tesla’s. 0-60 in 5 secs is not fast for an electric vehicle trying to compete. Does it have a realistic charging infrastructure? The infrastructure is literally the most significant factor holding back electric vehicles not named Tesla from competing despite Doug surprising oversight of this. Even with a good deal, the lack of infrastructure is a notable dealbreaker for many.

    -Completely fails to mention that is has the first infotainment system in the world that runs Android Auto OS. I'd say that is a pretty significant quirk and/or feature. -"These systems have been catching up to Tesla...Polestar arguably has better tech" doesn't compare or even mention the self-driving capabilities of either the Polestar or Tesla _at all_ (!!!) which is arguably _the most_ important differentiating software feature. -Doesn't mention safety rating at all... reviewing a _Volvo_ ... comparing it to current car safety leader Tesla. very poorly researched review imo... and inexplicably you still arrive at a higher rating than the Model 3 even though you repeatedly say the Model 3 is a better overall car!

    The standard AWD in the Polestar 2 is a more valuable asset than the performance package in Model 3. You are not comparing apples to apples instead you are comparing it to the Longer-Range AWD Model 3 with the Performance Package and that is Not cheaper than the Standard Polestar 2. However, a few things I don't like about the car are the bulky sloped center console, the weird shifter that should just be discreet buttons, the lack of storage in the armrest, the cloth seats, and the cramped back seats. These things keep the Polestar 2 from being a real competitor with the Model 3 or Y not to mention the Lack of Autopilot.
