Pros
Fun to drive,
fun to look at, practical enough.
Excellent range and charging.
A Very Good electric car

It’s a bit big - you have to think full-size SUV when parking -

not exactly cheap

One of the most complete electric cars money can buy. Superb build quality, and decent to drive.

Pros
Beautifully built intuitive cabin,
effortless performance,
exceptionally cool image,

Pros
Performance Pack adjustable dampers are too firm out of the box
the look on Tesla drivers’ faces

By:

The Polestar 2 is an excellent luxury electric vehicle, even if it's not as visually exciting as trendier alternatives.

Pros
Notable athleticism and quickness,
cabin materials and quality are indeed luxurious,
surprisingly intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Exterior design isn't exactly daring,
race-inspired dampers require manual adjustments,
estimated driving range is underwhelming.
