Volvo is again teasing the Polestar 2, its first all-electric car, with yet another a new picture ahead of the unveiling planned for later this month.

When Volvo rebranded Polestar two years ago, it was off to a somewhat awkward but interesting start as it unveiled its first vehicle, the Polestar 1.

The car turned out to be a highly expensive plug-in hybrid, which quickly sounded outdated when the automaker announced that they would bring an all-electric “Tesla Model 3 competitor” to production a year later.

The company is talking about making only electric vehicles going forward:

“From the release of the Polestar 2, we’re going all-electric and we’re never going back.”

Over the past two months, the automaker has been releasing images and details of the vehicle ahead of the unveiling.

Today, they released a new image of the rear-end of the Polestar 2:

It adds to several other teaser images of the inside and the outside of the vehicle gradually released in recent weeks:

With the release of the first image of the Polestar 2, the company also shared some specs for the upcoming vehicle:

  • First full BEV from Polestar and the Volvo Car Group
  • ~300 miles of range (all final specs to be announced shortly)
  • ~400 HP (all final specs to be announced shortly)
  • Four-door “fastback” body type
  • World debut of the new Google Android HMI, which in turn is also the debut of the in-car version of Google Assistant
  • Will be sold in the Tesla Model 3 price range
  • Available on subscription, which will be a slightly more premium version of our sister brand’s Care by Volvo package, although we will honor/take cash sales

The Polestar 2 will make its global debut on Wednesday, February 27, at 7:00 a.m. EST (4:00 a.m. PST) at Polestar’s global headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden.

It will be broadcasted live on Youtube and the vehicle will make its first public appearance at the Geneva International Motor Show a week later.
