The image provides an incomplete look at the Polestar 2, revealing a seemingly flat rear window joined by full width tail lights. By using the CMA architecture, the design of the Polestar 2 is expected to more like a compact SUV than a traditional sedan. That being said, we can decipher that the Polestar 2 will have a raked out rear windscreen that nearly leads into the boot. The company says that the Polestar 2 will come with a range in access of 480 km to a single charge.

The Polestar 2 will be the first fully electric vehicle from the automaker's just-launched electric performance arm, and will feature 400 horsepower and 482 kilometres of range on a fully charged battery.

Another detail, the company said in the teaser, is the price tag, which will be at the level Tesla Model 3. Toyota reveals its first fully-self driving vehicle. One year later, at I/O '18, Google actually showed off several cars with prototypes of what it now called "Android Automotive". The press release touting this achievement mentions that this will also be the debut of in-car Google Assistant, as well.

It's unclear whether Trump will nominate Shanahan for Senate confirmation as defense secretary or turn to another candidate. His views on aggression toward China and pulling American troops from the Middle East align with President Donald Trump's.

Volvo says the Polestar 2 will go into production "shortly after" the Polestar 1, which is set to start rolling off the production line later this year.

Though customers will be able to buy with cash, Polestar is hawking a subscription that'll be something like a slightly more premium version of the Care by Volvo package.

You can expect to see a very high-tech product, inside and out.
