The Polestar 2 makes its much-anticipated public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and is there to check out the new electrified sedan. 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 horsepower (300 kW) and 487 pound-feet (660 Newton-meters) of torque. This setup is enough for the sedan 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 275 miles in EPA testing or 500 kilometers (311 miles) in the WLTP evaluation. An optional Performance Package adds a set of Brembo brakes with yellow calipers, an Öhlins DFV (dual-flow valve) dampers, 20-inch wheels, and gold-colored 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 center 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. In the United States, it'll go on sale in California first in around July 2020. The base price in America will be $63,000 before destination. A model with the same specs will be available in Europe for 59,900 euros ($67,655 at current exchange rates), and there will also be a lower-tier variant available there starting at 39,900 euros ($45,065). If you want to see what your ideal Polestar 2 would cost, the configurator is available now.
