See if you should buy an electric car - www.carwow.co.uk/blog/should-i-buy-an-electric-car
This is the all-new Polestar 2! It’s an alternative to the oh-so-popular Tesla Model 3, and based on looks alone, we think it has the potential to beat it and be the must-have EV of 2020! But with a price tag just shy of £50,000, we need to take a proper look to see if it can sway us away from the class-leading Model 3! It may be packing a 78kWh battery and dual electric motors, helping it achieve over 400hp and 660Nm of torque, but is it enough? You'll have to join Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

    • The model 3 cost me 41k with taxes and everything but the polestar cost at least 60k+, rather save my 20k

  • I think it has a SAAB look to it. However, the c-pillar blindspot seems huge, and I wonder how many people will drive into the back of agressively regenerating one-pedal electric vehicles. Do the brake lights come on when you lift off the throttle? Also all the info on the screen seems to be more distracting than good for maintaining attention on the traffic.

  • I'm not sure why to mention that the seats are heated in 2020. I haven't seen a non heated (front) seat since the 1970's. Is this different in different countries, perhaps? My first car, a Volvo 244 DL 1976, had heated front seats and that was definitely not a luxury car.

    • @Reader Of Speaks ofcourse, who wouldnt? :D The problem is that just because a brand doesnt do any recalls doesnt mean that they are perfect, it usually just means that they cover up the problem and pretend it doesnt exist.

    • Would you rather drive around in a faulty vehicle than having the company taking responsibility and fixing the problem FOR FREE? Volvo also tend to recall cars when something is wrong even if its not a very big problem, and i really cant wrap my head around why people say thats a bad thing...
