Polestar is one of the new disruptors in the EV space. As Volvo's electric-vehicle brand, it aims to combine high-tech features with a modern Swedish look.
With a limited production run and a price tag starting at $155,000, the Polestar 1 is Polestar’s exclusive collector’s item plug-in hybrid. This sporty PHEV has an all-electric driving range of 52 miles and a combined system output of 619 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. The EPA has rated the Polestar 1 for fuel efficiency city/highway with a combined rating of 58 MPGe.
The Polestar 2 is Polestar’s fully-electric vehicle that comes with a large battery pack and an electric motor that powers the front wheels—or two electric motors for buyers who want an all-wheel-drive configuration. According to the EPA, the single-motor 231 horsepower version ($45,900) offers up to 270 miles of range, while the dual-motor 408 horsepower version ($49,900) delivers 249 miles of range.
