First Drive: 2020 Polestar 1

Finally, a zero emissions vehicle to inspire universal adoration. An electric vehicle that old pistonheads and nouveau riche EVers alike can lust for. A car that, like Porsche’s Taycan, transcends all the normal electric vehicle hype and is, well, just a good car.

A two-door sports coupe, that, but for its at least semi-outrageous price may not just be the best EV on the market today but possibly the best luxury gran turismo — and, yes, I have tested the McLaren GT — of any propulsion type.

It’s Polestar’s new “1” plug-in hybrid and, amongst its many superlatives, it is perhaps the most convenient car of all time. On the one hand, thanks to its 34 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery, it’s got 112 kilometres of electric-only — or, as Volvo calls it, electric-first — range, which means, for virtually all your daily commuting, we’re talking totally emissions-free, charge-it-at-home EV propitiousness.
