The Polestar 2 will be the first battery electric vehicle from the Volvo Group and is expected to have an approximate range of 483 km on a full charge. Volvo says the Polestar 2 will be four-door fastback offering a 300 miles of range with fully-electric powertrain producing more than 400 horsepower. The automaker also emphasized that Polestar 2 will take direct aim at Tesla's Model 3.

Not much can be ascertained from just the teaser except for the fact that the Polestar 2's rear headlights will actually be one light bar. The Polestar 2 is expected to be available later this year, launching as a 2020 model. At the time, the company had got a new team on board to assist the brand in developing electrified high-performance cars.

According to a statement, "The auto will go into production shortly after the long-range hybrid Polestar 1, which will enter production later this year". This will be the company's first fully-electric model and it is likely to go into production in the near future. The first of them - christened the Polestar 1, was unveiled in October 2017. The Polestar 2's launch will also mark the global debut of the Google product.
