Polestar 2 electric sedan from 43,900 francs in the first look test

It is impressive how much change Volvo’s former sports daughter Polestar has made in recent years. At the Geneva Motor Show 2018, the Swedes announced that Polestar (dt. Polarstern) would act as an independent sports and electrical brand alongside its parent company Volvo from 2019.

Even then, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath (who also remains Volvo’s chief designer at the same time) showed the first big hit: the exotic plug-in hybrid coupé Polestar 1. As dynamic and stylish the 1 Series looks, it also drives (here the test of the Polestar 1). The only catch on the first independent model: The Polestar 1 only cost 185,000, currently still 165,000 francs.
