The Polestar 2 makes its much-anticipated public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and is there to check out the new electrified saloon. Our video highlights the exterior styling before getting behind the wheel for a look at the Android-Auto-based infotainment display.

The Polestar 2 has an electric motor powering each axle, offering a total of 402 bhp and 487 pound-feet of torque. This setup is enough for the saloon to reach 62 miles per hour in less than 5 seconds. There's a 78-kilowatt-hour battery pack, and Polestar targets a range of 311 miles in the WLTP evaluation. An optional Performance Package adds a set of Brembo brakes with yellow callipers, an Öhlins DFV (dual-flow valve) dampers, 20-inch wheels, and gold-coloured seatbelts. 

The Polestar 2 has a fairly minimalist exterior that communicates Swedish style. There are also subtle cues from the brand's close relationship with Volvo, like the Thor's-Hammer-like headlights. Inside, an 11-inch tablet is on the centre stack, in addition to a digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.

Polestar will build the 2 in China and will export them around the world. The base price in Europe will be €59,900 euros (approx. £51,000 at the current exchange rate), and there will also be a lower-tier variant available there starting at 39,900 euros (£34,000).
