Oh, and there’s a good reason why we didn’t include anything from the Tesla brand here, for those of you who are lovers of that company. The Model Y we’re leasing (yes, we’re paying for it) has a lot going for it, but as we observed in our assessment of the vehicle, the phantom braking issue is a definite deal-breaker. As it stands, the car is dangerous and uncomfortable to drive, and many Model 3 owners have expressed the same concern. When Tesla releases a thorough repair, we’ll update this list and our assessment.
The parts of a decent electric vehicle are only one part of the whole. The Polestar 2 may not have the highest specifications in its class, but it’s a terrific car all around and is simple to love.
There are several reasons why we adore the Polestar 2. In its two-motor form, it is fairly swift, and no matter how many motors it has, the 2 are a blast to drive. Both inside and out, the styling is beautiful. Additionally, there is a ton of innovative technology inside, including one of our favorite Google-powered infotainment systems. Even while its range isn’t the greatest in the category, it nevertheless has many other charming qualities. Read our evaluation of the 2022 Polestar Polestar 2.
