Polestar 2 All-Electric Fastback

Though Tesla is certainly the most successful and well-known all-electric vehicle manufacturer, they don’t have a monopoly on the space. But while many have tried, nobody has managed to take Elon Musk’s enterprise down a peg. That could all change soon, however, thanks to the Polestar 2 all-electric fastback.

Made to take on Tesla’s very popular Model 3, this is Polestar’s very first all-electric car. And it looks like they pulled out all the stops — equipping it with an AWD powertrain that’s good for 408 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of torque, giving it a 0-62 time of under five seconds. If Polestar manages their plans, it should have a range of up to 275 miles per charge. The inside will also come loaded with tech, including an Android-powered infotainment system and “Phone-as-Key” technology. Furthermore, while the standard package is plenty interesting, there’s also an optional performance pack that upgrades it to Öhlins dampers, Brembo brakes, and special 20″ forged wheels. Pricing for the Polestar 2 starts at $45,400, but a launch edition will sell for closer to $68,000.

Purchase: $45,400+
