I am disappointed at how little activity there is here at Swedespeed regarding the Polestar 2, which is coming out for sale in 2020 -- along with the XC40 BEV under the Volvo logo. Over at Rennlist (the largest Porsche forum), there is a whole section devoted to the BEV Porsches (mainly Taycan so far, which is just starting to land at dealerships in the USA now), with 324 separate threads currently under BEVs there, with over 12k posts to those BEV threads. Here, there's not even a separate forum section to the Polestar 2 -- it's only discussed here on a single thread under "Polestar", which mainly refers to Volvo ICEVs (and a little to Volvo PHEVs). I think that the Polestar 2 is mentioned a lot more often at Rennlist than it is at Swedespeed.
The Taycan even has two separate Taycan forums outside of Rennlist now, with growing numbers every day. There is a new Polestar2.com forum with not much so far, and there's a "Polestar Forum" that again seems mostly devoted to Volvo Polestars (i.e., not BEVs).
I hope that this changes soon, because the Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 look to be excellent vehicles. Why are Porsche owners so interested in BEVs, while Volvo owners seem not to be? Both companies have very publicly discussed their movement toward electrification, and they're both on a similar path in terms of the PHEVs already in play and their first BEVs coming out within a year of each other now. Volvo is a larger company that sells vehicles whose average purchase price is well below that of Porsche. It doesn't bode well for Volvo if there's so little interest in their forthcoming BEVs amongst current Volvo owners. Over at Rennlist, a fairly large percentage of Porsche owners seem interested (and many eager) at the prospects of buying a BEV Porsche -- and many of them already own other BEVs (from the Leaf to the Bolt to the e-tron to all the Tesla models). What's different here?
I see that a new Mustang Mach-E forum was set up a month or two ago, and there's a fair amount of activity/discussion there. I, for one, am eagerly following all the new BEV models. I won't buy a Ford, but the Mach-E looks interesting. I was able to see a Taycan today at a dealership for the first time, and it's very amazing. I am looking forward to seeing the first Polestar 2, and I hope to be among the first to test-drive it in the US when it hits dealerships here. I've test-driven a couple of BEVs to date (Tesla Model S; Jaguar I-Pace) and have ridden in a Model 3 -- all very neat, but not what I am looking for in a BEV. (For context, I have not yet taken the plunge to buy a BEV, but I bought a PHEV last year, and we'll be buying a RAV4 Prime PHEV this coming summer when it comes out for my wife. Once you get into plugin electric vehicles, it's really hard to go back to non-plugins. We have bought our last ICE-only vehicle, I'm sure. We'll probably wait another couple years before getting our first BEV, though -- which will be mainly used for local driving, as we're not ready to brave the public-charging infrastructure in its current weak state. But plugins are superb for local driving.)
