The base Polestar liftback-sedan is a great competitor to the Tesla Model 3. With its Volvo heritage, the Polestar has already made its mark in NZ sales figures. Its minimalist interior points to the sustainability goal of being a completely carbon neutral brand.

*Note: The Polestar website lists the range as 470 km; here, we've listed the more conservative WLTP High range (consistent with other manufacturer specs).

* Rebate applied. Original price is $76,900
