After its split from Volvo (sort of), Polestar branched off to build its own road cars. The aptly named "1" – a sleek 600-bhp hybrid coupe – kicked things off, but now a second model is on the way. Its name, of course, is the Polestar 2 – and the company just can't help but tease the car ahead of its debut.
Earlier this month, we got our first glimpse of the Polestar 2 by way of a tantalising teaser of the EV's derriere. Now we know what the inside of Polestar's second car will look like – at least, in part. A new teaser shows the Polestar 2's tech-focused interior, complete with an Android HMI interface atop a sleek touchscreen. Polestar says its "an intuitive infotainment" – and you can try it out yourself right here.

On a smartphone or tablet, on Polestar's interactive site, download the Polestar 2 app. In it, you'll be able to experience everything the Polestar 2's infotainment system has to offer, including a smartphone-style segmented home screen, apps like Google Maps and Play Books, and even a Space Invaders-style game dubbed "Polestar Space Warp" (spoiler alert: it's super fun).
Dig a little deeper (head to the vehicle section) and you'll find the Polestar 2's customisable driving dynamics. Choose between three steering settings – soft, medium, and stiff – three regenerative braking settings – off, medium, or high – and even creep mode, either on or off. You can also view the vehicle's range, functions like lane keep assist, speed camera warnings, and collision avoidance.
Be a Polestar:
The Polestar 2's seemingly advanced infotainment system, paired with promises of 400 bhp and a 300-mile driving range gives us plenty to be excited about. But we'll have to wait. Polestar says the 2 will show up shortly after the 1 hybrid, which will officially debut later this year.
We'll keep our eyes open ahead of the Polestar 2's impending unveiling.
