Posted in Cars NewsThe scene might have been busy over the previous few days, evaluating the brand new Tesla Mannequin Y and the very related Mannequin three, calling them too related, however the truth of the matter is, the brand new small Tesla crossover has a direct rival. I'm, in fact, speaking in regards to the Polestar 2, itself an odd mannequin that’s neither a sedan nor a crossover - that’s proper up the Mannequin Y’s alley. These two vehicles are direct rivals if we’ve ever seen any, and whereas their styling could also be radically completely different, they're undoubtedly concentrating on the identical market phase. The Tesla is the extra bubble-like of the 2, with its strongly arched roofline, however it may well seat two extra individuals than the Volvo (in concept, at the very least), so at the very least there’s a function behind the hunchback design. When it comes to efficiency and vary, the 2 are very shut, at the very least if we evaluate the higher-spec Lengthy Vary or Twin Motor AWD variations of the Mannequin Y to the Polestar and its single powertrain selection. It is possible for you to to get the Tesla Mannequin Y Efficiency mannequin that may blow the Polestar 2 clear out of the water with its three.5-second zero to sixty time, however the different two variations obtainable from launch are comparable.
