Tesla is like the dictator of the electric vehicle’s world but looks like rivals are rising. With Lucid Motors announcing their Air sedan debut soon, and brands like Nikola with its badger looking towards Cybertruck with lured eyes, Tesla looks like surrounded pretty bad. Adding to this crowd, comes Polesatar’s energetic performance fastback, the Polestar 2.
Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath Tell:
“The whole world is facing enormous upheaval in the problem of the coronavirus pandemic. We start manufacturing now under these challenging situation with a strong focus on the health and safety of our people. This is a great acquirement and the result of a huge attempt from the staff in the business unit and the team securing the supply chain. I have a huge amount of consideration for the whole team – thanks to them!”
