Polestar, Volvo’s relaunched electric performance brand, has released the first image of its follow-up to the highly-praised Polestar 1. Suitably named the Polestar 2, the Swedish brand will lock horns with Elon Musk in the electric sedan segment as a direct rival to the Model 3.

Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath has confirmed that the vehicle will be priced at around $50,000 and will begin production sometime next year. This will be the first Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) from the Volvo Group, boasting a range of 300 miles and 400 horse power. The fully-electric four-door fastback will also include Google Android HMI for the first time, as well as a new in-car version of Google Assistant.

The official unveil will be in the next few weeks, providing more information on the EV. Judging by how the Polestar 1 was received, despite only being a hybrid, its successor will surely not disappoint. However, will the Swedish automaker’s next vehicle make its first attempt obsolete?
