I saw a Polestar 1 today in San Francisco.
It is technically a hybrid so not all-electric but it can be driven in 'Pure' electric mode so it may still be considered an upcoming competitor.
Apparently there will be only a few thousand of these made and the price tag starts around 150k$.
There were reporters and camera crew inside who were doing a piece on it
Looked really sharp and low to the ground. Strong lines and angles. Beautiful matte grey finish and yellow calipers. Definitely Volvo-like features.
Text on the side saying "High Modules CFRP Body | Optimised Carbon Fibre Layout" (whatever that means)
Of course the Polestar 2 will be more of a direct competitor to the I-Pace but will be coming later. (I have seen and been inside a Polestar 2 during an event in SF a few months ago and it looked very similar)
