    I like design of Polestar 2 more than design of Tesla 3.

    I find the polestar to be styled chunky and to tall for a sedan. I find the tesla to be a better styled vehicle plus with awd the tesla is the better performance vehicle.

    I look forward to hyundai kia ev s coming as well as General motors launch of 20 new ev s come 2023 etc.

    Not a huge fan of chinese automobile purchases considering they slap a 25 percent tarriff on imported cars and trucks into china from america.


    Ill return the favor and not buy their automobiles and trucks as my personal choice.

    Comparing the two side-by-side isn't even close; the 3 is Fugly.

    In the world of CUV's what's wrong with an upright sedan that you don't have to roll-into and out of? I especially like the trunk/hatch on the Polestar.

    I’d get the Polestar solely because Musk had nothing to do with it. Also it looks much much better.

    Ed the wonderful thing about opinions is we can all have different opinions.

    I believe polestar would have been better served with a cuv ev than a tall upright sedan. Not quite as sleek to my eye and to the eyes of many consumers.

    I remember the amc eagle sedans and wagons so you might be right.

    I still prefer my second largest purchase after my home to come from a country other than chinas communist party ..

    To each their own.

    On the details of performance and looks the tesla is a prefered choice and I hope to see gm do well with its 20 ev vehicles to ve released in the next few years.

    I hear kia and hyundai have some exciting choices for us as well.

    Even vw s little ev shown this past week on various youtube channels looks nice too.

    Polestar Ill pass because its coming from a communist regime

    Good point. Besides, isn't that sort of what got the SUV craze going? Cars getting too swoopy and ingress/egress being hampered as well as outward visibility issues.

    To my eyes, the Tesla is much better looking. I'm not a fan of the grill-less front, but other than that it looks much better than the aforementioned Volvo's AMC Eagle look. From this review I only see two things where the Volvo is better - heated steering wheel and the trunk opening. And all the more amazing is that the Model 3 has been around for a couple of years and is still better than the Volvo.

    And, even though the missus is strongly looking at buying a Volvo XC60 T5 R Design, I'd take the non-communist Tesla any day based on morals. But, that aside, I find the Tesla company to be a lot more exciting and interests me to own a piece of a company that launches one of its cars into outer space.

    I'd get the polestar too, because frankly, I would not get in a model 3. Here https://www.thedrive.com/tech/36274/...rade-fake-wood is the latest crazy story about their "manufacturing".

    As round as people are getting rolling in and out of cars seems like it would feel like a natural thing for the little porkers.
