It’s clear that the design teams behind these two electric competitors have taken very different approaches. Take one look at the Polestar 2, and the strong Volvo DNA is immediately clear. Especially the headlights and typical vertical "grille" feel familiar as well as the squared-off nose. Polestar's interior is of the highest quality and is equipped with vegan textiles as standard.
In contrast, the Model 3 has the rounded front / end design preferred by Tesla and instead of a grille, the focus is on the cat-like headlights. The minimalist design is also to be found inside the cabin, where the expression signals 'less is more'.
The Polestar has conventional door handles but Tesla has opted for high-tech hidden handles flush with the door. Both electric cars have an expansive glass roof.
