      The only problem is can't get hold of one, even CbV leasing, or even just one of those 50 tooling-test pre-production cars.

      It seems like it is a very well engineered product and desirability is high. Will turn out to be an excellent branding & marketing exercise for Polestar to become known, well done!

      Yeh, PHEV supercar is not new but P*1 is more affordable, relatively, and you can drive daily and not looking like punky.

      No customer at that price point is looking for “old news”, they are looking for the best new toy, and being first and different...I’m not sure if the 2nd or even 3rd year production batches will be sold as readily as the first 500.

      Many would like to try through CbV I bet, more than who would like to own it.

      Lexus LC500h only gets a 1.1-kWh battery, virtually no e-range. 354-hp on 3.5 V6 engine, near $100k price tag, nothing to see here.

      Lexus isn't Chinese though. That's enough to see here.
