    Forgot about rax credits in Colorado if you mix our incentive with federal tax credits the car sits at 47,500

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

  • MaikaiGuy

    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!

    What about the turning radius? I have a Model 3 AWD; turning radius not so great...apparently the price you pay for motor in the front.

    $65,000 car with a cheap plastic looking key fob, crappy looking infotainment screen on a portrait 2012 Amazon fire tablet with huge bezels and a Windows Mobile looking OS. I'll stick with my Tesla that starts at $20-30,000 less.

    In the EU the Polestar is more compelling because it costs 44.390€ (Long Range) while the I can´t find the Tesla model S on the configurator anymore and the Dual Motor max Range variant costs twice as much.

  • Derek Land

    The difference between all these and Tesla is build quality. Tesla build quality is in the toilet.

    Doug please review a W204 4 DOOR MERCEDES-AMG C63.

  • Pelle0014

    In some angles it looks like a Saab!

    "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.

  • Vince Ryder

    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.

  • Ben Stahr

    The gold accents are part of the performance pack. The infotainment is by Google (android automotive). Since a recent software update you can ditch the keys completely and unlock the car with your phone.

    It's a little jacked up because it shares a platform with the xc40 SUV.

    What about the $7500 tax credit still available for Polestar but not for Tesla? When you figure that in it brings the overall cost of the Polestar 2 down significantly.


    Tasla is better

    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?

    • ThatCarGuy2


  • EvilCouncil

    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.

    Always funny to see the triggered anti-EV crowd lose their sh!t over every positive EV review. Laughing at triggered Tesla fanboys gets old, so it's nice to laugh at triggered ICE fanboys every now and then.

  • Ravi Waghela

    I immediately stopped watching as soon as I noticed a hump on rear floor . Very annoying. Electric car should have flat rear floor just like Tesla. And my lovely Honda Civic 2015 :))) I know it’s not electric but I love my Honda :)

    • Ravi Waghela

      @ThatCarGuy2 Absolutely... right . One of my friend boasting about his newly bought Tesla and talking bad about my Honda .... 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 😂

    • ThatCarGuy2

    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

  • KarlRossmann1900

    Hideous car. Ugly as hell.

  • Insidious DrNine

    Polestar 2 has an iPad mini on the dash - the Tesla 3 has a 14" monitor on a stand in the middle of the windshield. Neither of these look like they belong there.

  • Fatal

    Hate that it looks like a new and longer Dodge Caliber. However the other model looks very nice.

    The design looks like that car you learn how to draw as a kid.

  • Blop

    Just looking at it it looks like a Volvo so I'm guessing it must be from that cold place in Europe. Bleg

    • Seybertooth

      Those of us who live in that cold place in Europe and who see these cars on the roads all the time know that it looks effing fantastic.

  • fishwhistle

    Ugh, another big screen instead of normal controls... I don't want people trying to manage a touchscreen to turn on the AC while they're going 60mph on the highway.

  • Rohan

    while watching THIS I got an advert for the POLESTAR 2! 😂

    For me, i like the looks of the Model 3 way more than the polestar, plus Carwow did a real world range test and the Polestar is 5,000$ more than the Model 3 performance and doesn’t even get the range of the Standard Range Plus

    @18:00 Oh wait Doug, so you have to open a hood like... a hood? No wayyy. That's a lot of work

    • Michael Guyadeen
      Michael Guyadeen

      @Seybertooth I get it. But that's not a lot of work. It takes 15 seconds.

    • Seybertooth

      The complaint, as I understood it, is that it's a trunk (ok "frunk"). So you have to open the frunk like you used to open the engine compartment. Think about it.

    The only thing with Tesla is that the manufacturing is garbage. If u get a well build one than ur lucky.

  • kevin n

    Model 3 is a design disaster and it's built like a LADA ie it's shit but it's efficient. The Polestar is gorgeous and built very well but it's relatively over priced and inefficient.

  • mkkrmcmt

    Model 3 is frumpy?

    While it's a neat car from a quality manufacturer they still need to work on getting the prices down in order for the average folks to ever buy one. This car starts at 59k!

    The infotainment system is called "android automotive". It probably deserves it's own video since any car manufacturers can use it too

    Reviews like these feel more like an app review and less like a car review. Is it a sales pitch for a car or an honest review? Please, Doug, I miss your shorter and humorous reviews!

  • Takuan

    Looks are subjective. To me the Polestar looks like a bathtub on wheels like most Volvo's. No way I'd buy this one over a Tesla.

    • Seybertooth

      Exactly, looks are subjective so this appeals to people who don't like how Teslas look.


    I prefer regular hard buttons and switches for climate controls. I don’t need to take my eyes off the road nearly as often or as long to adjust anything. Most IC cars still have them, even though they now have touch screen for other functions. Much safer.

    Polestar 4.7sec 0-60 vs Tesla model 3 performance 3sec 0-60. Lol🤦‍♂️. Also “polestar” I know a few down at bouncing bettys they are cheap to

    • Seybertooth

      The only people who care about 0-60 times are youtube commenters and I bet you've never even sat in an EV. So "LOL" right back at you, buddy.

    Lovely but my brain simply can’t compute having a vehicle with the short range of any electric vehicle. It’s incomprehensible. Utterly useless to many people, myself included. 🤣

    the design needs work if its trying to compete with Tesla. It doesnt seem to have any personality of its own. It looks like its made up of many car design, patched together. Jag + Honda + Mitsubishi + Tesla
