4 min to readLeasing
Although Tesla&rsquo;s Model 3 has been available (in the US) since 2017 and the Polestar 2 will hit roads from summer 2020, these two cars will square off against each other in terms of price and range. Polestar has the ambition to become &ldquo;the guiding light in the electric car revolution&rdquo;, and we are keen to see whether they can threaten Tesla&rsquo;s leading position in the electric race.<br />

With its robust design, 442 km range, Google-based infotainment system, and competitive pricing, the Polestar 2 can compete not just with the Tesla, but with premium sedans in the combustion-engine sector as well.
