Numerically speaking, the Polestar 2 electric vehicle that was unveiled Wednesday is one behind the Tesla Model 3.

It is expected to take on the Tesla Model 3 when it launched and the auto is started to have a price of around £50,000. The base European model will start at 39,900 euros, or about $45,000 at current exchange rates, with the U.S. "Launch Edition" starting at $63,000 before incentives.

If you're interested in pre-ordering the Polestar 2, you'll need a $1,500 CAD deposit. Target range is over 300 miles for the all-wheel drive electric powertrain, which produces 300kW (408 hp) and 487 lb-ft of torque for a 0-62mph time of "less than 5 seconds". The CEO also assured would-be customers that the Polestar 2 would be a great vehicle to own and drive.

And this is it: the equally as imaginatively titled Polestar 2.

Polestar is aiming the Polestar 2 directly at the Tesla Model 3. Although the Polestar 2 will be sold through franchised dealers, the automaker isn't planning elaborate showrooms stocked with dozens of cars.

Polestar was one Volvo's in-house tuning and performance devision. It unveiled its first luxury vehicle, Polestar 1, last year and opened up for pre-orders; production starts later this year. Its 78-kWh battery, comprised of 27 modules, is integrated into the car's floor for ideal interior room and a low center of gravity.

Initial launch markets include China, the United States, Canada, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK, with the company saying that other markets are under consideration for future expansion.

As for those batteries, they will be integrated into the floor, thus helping stiffen the structure of the vehicle Volvo is also promising exceptional sound insulation, saying that noise from the road will be reduced by 3.7 dB in comparison with a traditional chassis. Volvo's electric performance brand Polestar is unveiling a battery-powered compact vehicle which to be shown at next month's Geneva auto show, becomes available in 2020.

Natural voice control and a new 11-inch touch screen display bring the new interface to life. "We have also designed a standard vegan interior with progressive textiles that will appeal to the forward-thinking audience who will subscribe to Polestar 2". Further tech, such as being able to use your smartphone as the key and numerous connected services, are also part of the list. Maximilian Missoni, head of Design at Polestar, said they made a decision to bring something different to the segment. This capability also allows Polestar to tailor its infotainment system to the requirements of specific markets such as China where Google Maps is not available.
