See if you should buy an electric car - www.carwow.co.uk/blog/should-i-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!

    • To be honest, I think the Tesla looks better and is a bit more interesting, the Polestar is just a Volvo to me, quite boring and not really as good as it claims

    • @Noah Tabraham , @SkinnyOne, @Denis Daly, @ZA AZ, @Paul, @Xanthopteryx, @Gunnar Bolmsjö,@supaahflyy,@Darek Synowiec,@HQsound,@Roger Starkey,@ram64man, @Johnny Strabler Thank you all for mentioning. Just to make sure that y'all not relate with Chinese I post this sentence(It will be good thing if you can't read it) 小心被当局逮住 / 工作一结束手机就销毁 For one thing guys, I DID NOT say I own Tesla nor did I said I support Tesla. I just can't believe how dumb people have gotten. Why are you bringing phone to the matter? I was saying that car is something that can harm, possibly kill YOU and the others if not worked properly. A Chinese made mobile(Samsung,Apple, etc.) does not kill multiple people at once, even if it works like a bomb. Have you ever heard of a news that mobile killing multiple people? I just said the car is being made by Chinese in the Chinese factory which in common sense is not so much reliable. If the Tesla is being made in China, Fine, so be it. Not buying one. Any of you have a nice memory of products made in China? Certainly, not for me. Kindly prove me wrong. PLEASE. So please, if you want a reasonable reply please think twice before you put bullshit and mention me (P.S Thanks to the people who were kind enough to provide insights that I did not realize about products. And please it's been 4 months guys, if you want me to shut up please tell Mat to block me)

  • A view from afar, Polestar for; It's a hatchback, looks better than a tesla, (Matt, shave your eyebrows off, looks better with a grill and you look better with eyebrows, er, I think) ditto interior, 0 to 60, in real driving not relevant, 40 to 60/50 to 70, is where it's at. Tesla for, the best charging network in the world, most advanced updates and Tech available, so, you pays your money and takes your choice, mine would be, Polestar. As always, a great review Matt, this is why we keep watching.

  • 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.

  • I think it has a SAAB look to it. However, the c-pillar blindspot seems huge, and I wonder how many people will drive into the back of agressively regenerating one-pedal electric vehicles. Do the brake lights come on when you lift off the throttle? Also all the info on the screen seems to be more distracting than good for maintaining attention on the traffic.
