The Polestar 2 combines luxury and minimalist design into an appealing fastback body. Could this be our ideal electric car?

Review
Driven the car for a month now. At 200k (after overtrade), this car is really the best value luxury EV in the market currently. It is well-built like a Volvo, good equipment level incl premium sound system, memory seats, auto tailgate, sunroof and GPS on the dashboard.
For those who are considering the T brand, I think if you are not a tech junkie and still prefer to drive a conventional car, then the Polestar will work better for you

Review
Overall a nicely built car. Better built than T brand but the drive is incredibly boring. It is not bad but just feels far from the showroom video. Its a boring family compact crossover. Acceleration is linear, not jerky. The one pedal drive is among the worst ive driven against other EVs, guarantee passenger will vomit. Only driveable if switch off the one pedal totally. The range is mediocre considering competition and actual useable range puts it firmly as a city driving car. Rear sitting is very small, anyone above 1.72 will have a hard time getting in or out. The seats are firm but not comfy. Outlook is handsome.

Review
Polestar's showroom is still under construction but you can already head down to 45 Leng Kee to ask for test drives. And you should.

What I like
Just look at it. Many say the car has an unusually tall stance but I think it looks great. It's clean, sleek, yet adorned with lovely touches like those little segments used to make up the grille, or the sharp headlights alongside the bracket-shaped taillights.

On the inside, there's nice-to-touch materials throughout, and the car's tall shoulder or beltline means you really sit cocooned within.

And oh, my is there's power available in this thing. 406hp combined with the instant torque of the electric motors really makes it seem like you can carve up any road effortlessly.

What I do not like
None whatsoever. If you like your electric car to have that touch of clean, Nordic design, the Polestar is the way to go. There's going to be a lower powered version coming soon so you don't even have to sweat about that road tax.

Review
The Polestar 2 merges strong SUV design with the sleek shape of a fastback. It sports a clean, elegant design that is rather pleasing on the eyes. Only complain is that it could sit a little lower on the road.

What I like
There's plenty of power available if you keep the pedal down, but overall the Polestar is still very easy to simply just get in and drive. The controls are well weighted, it is less jumpy than other electric cars, and the infotainment is also sensibly laid out.

What I do not like
Shorter drivers will feel as if the car is swallowing you thanks to the tall centre console and short windows. There's also unfortunately no sport mode if you're wanting more responsiveness from less pedal application.
