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.

I wouldn't call it "Tesla-Rivaling", EVs like this is really going in a very different direction. People who like the style of this will most likely not enjoy the style of Tesla and vice versa, it's really targeted towards a different group of people

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.

Only doug would compare two vehicles using the incorrect prices. The only time you get the gold seatbelts is with the performance package that starts at $71,400

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.

The all-Helvetica UI is so damn nice. I wish more car makers would go with more contemporary and simplistic typography like Polestar.

Gold is the performance edition. And it has the adjustable Bilstein dampers so it corners better than the Model 3. I've lowered our P2 and the handling is comparable to my VW CC (also on coilovers). I definetely prefer it over the Tesla plus the dealer support network is better with Polestar.

I think you're paying an extra 5 grand to have a car that won't fall apart. Either out of patriotism or fear of Tesla stans, Doug doesn't seem to mention Tesla's awful quality record.

Surely I'm not the only one who thinks it's ugly, right? Also, at $20k more for a base Taycan.... Who would buy this? It's still a $60k ugly car whereas the Taycan is an incredible piece of engineering.

This is a good competitor to the Tesla. But I’m not a fan of short range. 350-400 is good. 600 is insane. All about range on electrics. And I hope it’ll get better.
