The black, pre-production Polestar 2 prototypes look stunning in the wild

A Tesla Model 3 driver was lucky enough to come across two rare sights: first, Polestar 2 prototypes at a Fastned charging station. Then, a Porsche Taycan at another charging station.

Since the all-electric Porsche gets plenty of coverage, let's focus on the new Polestar 2, which will be available in 2020.

The two black prototypes were out on road tests/charging tests and we must admit that they look amazing. These cars are very attractive, much like the Jaguar I-PACE. Perhaps this will have a positive impact on future sales.

Polestar 2 specs:

  • 78 kWh battery (324 pouch cells, 27 modules, liquid-cooled)
  • target 500 km (311 miles) of WLTP range
  • expected 275 miles (442 km) of EPA range
