Has a smart interior and scores highly for safety. Sadly, in many other areas – including range, driving dynamics and speed of charging – it's well behind the class leaders.

With the exception of battery size and number of motors, all Polestar 2s come with the same standard equipment, meaning that you always have plenty of toys. To add additional equipment, you’ll want to dip into the option packs, which give you access to everything from an upgraded Harman Kardon stereo system to a 360-degree reversing camera.

The single-motor version isn’t the fastest when compared with the likes of the entry-level Kia EV6 or rear-wheel-drive Tesla Model 3, but it’s still plenty quick enough for everyday life. In fact, in our tests, it sprinted from 0-60mph in 7.5sec and even felt sufficiently punchy at high speeds.
