It’s time for the ultimate electric showdown – we’re pitting the Tesla Model 3 against the Polestar 2 to see which EV reigns supreme.
Who knew that after all this time it would be an American disrupter and a previously little-known performance brand vying for the title of ‘best electric car’? Not us – but we’re not about to start complaining.
Both cars are very good.
And while the big brands have almost lagged behind on bringing exciting and innovative electric driving to the masses, Tesla and Polestar have forged ahead, throwing out the rulebook and ushering in a bright new future.
The Tesla Model 3 hit the market first.
Though Tesla had already shaken up the electric world with its forward-thinking, big power, big range electric cars, they weren’t a viable option for most people. The Model 3 was different – designed with consumers in mind, it brought the same ethos but at a more affordable cost.
It revolutionised the EV market.
There was no compromising on range or performance – the Model 3 is brimming with both. Designed to take on the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, and Mercedes C-Class, but better (and electric), it’s not a surprise that so many people opt for a Tesla lease.
