The company has plans to reveal the Polestar 2 in the coming weeks and the only bit we get to see in this teaser image is the rear of the auto. By using the CMA architecture, the design of the Polestar 2 is expected to more like a compact SUV than a traditional sedan. The Polestar 2 will have a top speed in excess of 155 MPH and will be able to travel upwards of 310 miles on a single charge.

Dubbed the Polestar 2, it's pretty clear that Volvo is taking dead aim at Tesla's Model 3.

Volvo has released the first teaser image of the Polestar 2 Electric vehicle.

Tesla may have burst onto the scene as something of a niche player with the original Roadster many years ago, but the success of the Model S unequivocally demonstrated that an electric auto could become a mainstream success. The company says its model will be sold in the Model 3 price range, which is between USD44,000 to USD62,000 before incentives in the United States. The auto is expected to be equipped with the Google's new Android HMI. If all goes according to plan, Volvo will begin mass production in early 2020, which is to say the car's final specs and price are subject to change. You can expect to see orders open up after the Polestar 1 launches; that auto starts production later in 2019. The vehicle will be available on subscription, which will be a slightly more premium version of Volvo's "Care by Volvo" package.

It's also hinted that the Polestar 2 will serve as the debut platform for Google Android HMI, which features Google's new in-car version of its Assistant program. Additional information about the vehicle, though, won't be available for a couple more months.
