High-performance Polestar 2 prototype teased with 21-inch wheels, big brakes

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 – or rather its electric offshoot Polestar – is adamant, however, that its new Android-based infotainment system will "stay as cutting-edge in the future as it is today".

Polestar's third act will be a performance SUV - report

The Polestar 3 will follow its 1 super coupe and 2 jacked-up sedan siblings with a new SUV style, according to a new report. Refresher: Polestar, Volvo's all-electric spin-off performance brand, unveiled the 441kW/1000Nm Polestar 1 in 2017 and followed it up with the 2 in 2019. The 1 won't come to Australia, but Volvo's local arm insists the 2 will be here later this year.

2020 Polestar 2 unveiled

Polestar has unveiled the car it hopes will take down the Tesla Model 3 overnight, in the form of the 2. It's stayed true to its original concept, too, with a design heavily inspired (almost entirely inspired, in fact) by the Volvo Concept 40.2. On the inside, the Polestar 2 has a dashboard design that's quite different from the Volvo XC40, with a free floating portrait-orientation 11.0-inch touchscreen dominating the cabin.
