The first all-electric car from the Volvo Car Group, The Polestar 2, will start at $59,900 when it comes to the United States later this year. With an Android Automotive, the five-door fastback-style electric car has about 408 horsepower and can get close to 275 miles of range per charge. It will be made available to all the 50 states, and Polestar is expected to announce the leasing and financing details in the near future.
Options for the China-made car include $4,000 Nappa leather interior, 20-inch alloy wheels for $1,200, and a $5,000 “performance pack.” The Polestar 2 will also be available in metallic paint colors for $1,200. People who are looking forward to owning this all-electric car can purchase it online. Despite the novel Coronavirus pandemic, the company is still going to open up retail showrooms in New York and on the West Coast of the US in late summer 2020.
Announced in early 2019, the Polestar 2 will be the second car from Polestar, a performance sub-brand that was spun out of Volvo and is now co-owned by the Swedish automaker and its Chinese parent company, Geely. Even though it is not that cheap, it is a far better option than the Polestar 1. Polestar is however planning to sell a base version of the Polestar 2 that starts at $45,000.The Company is looking forward to selling the car in an array of markets including the UK, Canada, Norway, Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands.
One standout feature of the Polestar 2 is that it will be the first all-electric car to use the new embedded Android Automotive operating system by Google. It will also be powered by Android 10 while offering all sorts of Google integrations.
