Not to mention that the Polestar 3 weighs 2.6t and has a cd of 0.3, and therefore will be inefficient compared to a Tesla M3 or MYThe main problem with the Polestar 2 is that it’s built on the same CMA platform that underpins cars like the Volvo XC40 rather than a bespoke EV platform like the model 3. This means you get less cabin space as the platform has to able to cope with things like different engine types, gearboxes and exhausts. It’s also pretty heavy at something like 300Kg more than a model 3, though I don’t know how much that has to do with the platform.
From what I understand the Polestar 3, which has just been unveiled, and Volvo EX90 (the XC90 replacement due next month) shouldn’t have the same compromises as they are designed as EVs from the ground up (on the new SPA2 platform that will also be used for the Volvo S60 replacement). The Polestar 3 is pretty pricey though at £79,900 for the launch edition though throw in the cost of non-silver paint, leather interior and the performance pack (way overpriced for what it offers) and you are looking at £91,500.
