A year after dropping the wraps on the Polestar 1 flagship sports car, the Swedish brand has now finally teased us its second iteration. We saw some information about the car recently, which is now complemented by a teaser image showcasing the tail-end of the car.
While it doesn’t reveal much, we can point out a few interesting design details that we can glean. For starters, it can be seen that the car is going to have a sleek fastback shape. The trunk lid as we see is very short with the rear window coming almost to the edge. Additionally, the rear window seems to lean way forward and looks close to flat in the teaser image.
Earlier reports about the sedan stated that the car will be sized much like the Audi A7 and A5.
Earlier reports about the sedan, however, stated that the car will be sized much like the Audi A7 and A5. The shape looks much softer than the Polestar 1 with a rounded tail around the back and fenders that bulge out gently. We can notice that the tail lights run across the rear of the car which is the first in Polestar’s lineup.
We are most likely to see the moniker officially make an appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Unlike the hybrid Polestar 1, the new iteration will be fully electric. It will be based on Volvo’s compact Modular Architecture that currently underpins the XC40 crossover. We expect the price tag to range somewhere between $45,000 and $55,000, which is in line with the Model 3 by Tesla.

Entry-level pricing of the Polestar 2 is expected to feature multiple battery options costing in the aforementioned range. We learnt that the maximum range of the Polestar 2 is expected to be around 563km on an unspecified test protocol, which we assume to be applicable for the top-end $63,400 model. This rivals the Tesla Model 3 Long Range which is capable of 334 miles on conservative EPA protocols.
