We expect to start hearing lots more about Polestar 2 in February, leading up to its formal debut at the annual Geneva Motor Show. The company says its model will be sold in the Model 3 price range, which is between USD44,000 to USD62,000 before incentives in the United States. The automaker also emphasized that Polestar 2 will take direct aim at Tesla's Model 3.

Handscomb was a somewhat surprise selection for the Sydney Test after getting dropped for Boxing Day. Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav picked up five wickets for 99 runs.

Though details surrounding the auto are limited for now, it is clear that the Polestar 2 will shun a hybrid powertrain in favour of an all-electric setup. The company says that the Polestar 2 will come with a range in access of 480 km to a single charge.

Polestar's press release calls the new system "Google Android HMI", though the functionality mentioned sounds exactly like what the Android Automotive demos from last year's Google I/O offered. At the time, the company had got a new team on board to assist the brand in developing electrified high-performance cars. Google has a similar deal in place with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. As far as we can tell, this may be the first real competitor against the Model 3. Volvo has already suggested that model will have a range in the vicinity of 250 miles and a starting price of $35,000 and $40,000.
