  • Polestar was not created for electric vehicles.. it’s was actually the performance division. Polestar c30

  • This is NOT a Volvo. It is a Chinese car. Geely owns the vast majority of this company. Volvo is involved only so people like you can be confused as to exactly where this car is coming from. It is not a Volvo. It is not a Volvo design. The only thing this car has to do with Volvo is Volvo has a financial stake in the company. That is it. If you're going to do a review, provide real data.

  • I was at my local Volvo dealership looking for a XC90 T8 to buy. And I was talking to my salesman when another customer talking to another salesman said to his salesman " What are the quirks and features of this car?". When I heard that I had a grin on my face. I thought to myself that he must be a Doug Demuro viewer. LOL. The salesman ask me why I was laughing and I told him about Doug's channel. The salesman said to me he watches Doug's videos too to train himself of all the features of all Volvos he sells at the dealership. Doug is very famous apparently!

  • "Maybe" the Polestar 2 costs more than the Tesla Model3 because it has the interiors of an actual car and the quality is light years ahead of Testa. In the Model 3 you get sits, the most crappy horrible steering wheel on the planet and an IPad. Thats all.

  • Good car, bad price for what you get. Hopefully, it will come down to sub $46K to become competitive, and the range will go up by the same percentage.

  • I like some of the features but to me this car is DEO for these 3 main reasons, price, battery range and rear leg room. I am not a big fan of not having instrumentation right in front of the driver with the Model 3 and Y but for everything else offered in comparison why would you buy the Polestar? Gold seatbelts?

  • The extra money you spend on the Polestar 2, is basically for build quality. If you compare that to any Tesla, a Tesla isn't even worth 20k. The panel gaps, materials used and so on is just horrible. The moment you step in a Polestar 2, you immediately know where the price difference comes from.

Few days later he cams to me and asking if he can borrow my car for few days. Lol 😝. I asked why !??? He said his landlord refused to install charger in his house. He was renting a room there. LMAO..😂. Had to go to find charging station to charge his Tesla. And there are only few charging stations in Canada ( Toronto). Had a job interview but his Tesla was out of charge . Next day I asked sarcastically.... “ hey bud . How’s your new Tesla??” Lol 😂

  • Wait so your telling me as of today anyways this car that starts at $60K and has a range of 235 miles on a charge when the Tesla Model 3 with pretty much all extra bells and whistles would be around $60K but with a range of 320 miles??? That's a big difference and so idk if it comes close to competing with model 3 maybe the model S but even then the range is not comparable to even want to purchase it lol
