The All-New, All-Electric Volvo Polestar 2 Will Be Coming Out Later This Year

It's almost here - a completely new product from Volvo is on the horizon. The first ever all-electric Volvo car, the Polestar 2, will be coming out later this year. Volvo's Polestar division says that the 2 will have a four-door fastback shape, so its likely to look similar to the Volvo S40 sedan. In fact, Polestar executives have already confirmed that the Polestar 2 will ride on an electrified version of Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture platform that underpins the XC40 crossover. The new Polestar 2 is expected to compete with the Telsa Model 3.

The Volvo Polestar 2 will be built with a large battery pack that is expected to have a range of about 300 to 350 miles on a charge. It should put out around 400 horsepower and will likely be offered in all-wheel drive. It's also expected to have a new Google Android–based infotainment system with Google Assistant integration. As a prime competitor of the Tesla 3, the Polestar 2 will probably be priced similarly, meaning that it should cost between $40,000 and $50,000. While Polestar will allow buyers to purchase the 2 in cash, the company is pushing a subscription model like the Care by Volvo system, which charges an all-inclusive monthly fee. Polestar will also eschew traditional dealerships in favor of showrooms, called Polestar Spaces, that allow customers to see the vehicles. The Polestar 2 will make its official debut within the next few months, and it will likely go on sale later in the year as a 2020 model. In the meantime, drivers in the Kentwood and Grand Rapids, MI can get outstanding fuel economy with the Volvo S60, which gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.
