Polestar 2 EV review – see where it beats the Tesla Model 3

See if you should 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!

Volvo has been in the car manufacturing way way longer than Tesla and still Tesla beat Volvo on the basics. Handling etc… Obviously many of Polestar's specs are Tesla inspired.

I love your videos, but the passive aggressiveness in this particular video pisses me off.
I mean I hate Apple and yet you managed to infuriate me with your "Apple fanboys"

It comes too close to the car in front too quickly, could create road rage situation. Can the owner adjust that feature to their style of driving?

Obviously the "moron" in the blue audi in front is your camera car, which I guess Audi had loaned you for the day so no harm done if you actually crashed into it then.
And after complaining a bit about the harsh ride you might appreciate the manually adjustable dampers a bit more. I guess you can have them set up to suit your taste or the local roads or whatever because as you say nobody is going to be doing that very often, if ever.
As usual no hint in your reviews as to what to do if you get a flat but at least in this review we could see there is no spare of any sort, so maybe there is a can of gunk which is probably useless and is going to require you to buy a new tyre anyway because the old one is full of gunk that the repairer will not remove (why would he if he can sell you a new one?). Plus you have to buy another repair kit which costs almost as much as a tyre even if it didn't work. So hundreds of dollars for a simple flat or zero if you had a spare wheel provided when you bought the car. I do wonder though what the guy you call to fix your flat tyre is going to do to help if the gunk does not work. Can someone tell me? Do you have to get a "tow"? or do they carry a range of skinny spare wheels these days? I thought I read about that happening in the UK but have not heard of it in Australia.
