Along with the first image of its second model, Polestar has revealed a few details about its (and also Volvo’s) first EV model, the Polestar 2.

With 400 hp on tap, the “four-door ‘fastback'” will be able to get you moving in a hurry. It will also get you far, though, because Polestar claims that it will have around 300 miles of range.

The Polestar 2 will also premiere Google’s Android HMI, an Android-based infotainment system that will eventually funnel its way down into other Polestar, Volvo, and Lynk & Co products, replacing the glitchy Sensus Connect system currently used by Volvo.

New year, new us. Reliance on combustion engines is coming to an end. The way forward is electric. This year we go all-in with the launch of the electric Polestar 2. pic.twitter.com/maN5DF7toI

Like the XC40, with which it will reportedly share some chassis components, the Polestar 2 will be offered via subscription, though Polestar promises that its service will be even more “premium.”

No firm price was offered, but Polestar did reveal that the 2 will compete with the Tesla Model 3, so expect a price in the $40,000 to $50,000 range.

Polestar has also opted not to give us an official reveal date, but has promised that it will give more details about the Polestar 2 in the coming weeks. So stay tuned for more information soon.
