The 2021 Polestar 2 electric sedan could gain a Tesla Model 3 Performance-rivalling variant in the coming years, if the brand's CEO's social media posts come to fruition. Images posted by Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath on Instagram show a white Polestar 2 electric sedan with body-coloured wheel-arch and bumper trim, and 21-inch black alloy wheels and large gold-painted brake calipers from the hybrid Polestar 1 coupe.

Volvo's Android infotainment 'future proof'

Any tech-obsessed Android user will know that unless you're using Google's own Pixel devices, updates to the operating system are often months late – and you'll be lucky to see any at all after a few years, with most brands preferring you upgrade to a new device instead.

Volvo Polestar 2 electric car dearer than Tesla Model 3, due in Australia late 2020

Volvo's second electric car, the Polestar 2, will be dearer than a top-line Tesla Model 3 when it goes on sale in the US mid-year. The Volvo Polestar 2 is due in North American showrooms in a few months, with the first Australian deliveries expected to follow soon after. "Polestar 2 is still intended for Australia and we are in discussion with our colleagues [from] Polestar as to the exact timing," a Volvo Australia spokesperson told CarAdvice.

Polestar to 'change the perception of Volvo, and the way Volvo does business'

"I bet you've all driven Volvos and said they are safe, the interior is beautiful, the design is minimalistic, but I bet none of you have said that's the best car I've ever driven," Polestar chief operating officer Jonathan Goodman told Australian media at Polestar headquarters outside Gothenburg.
