Rivian and Polestar against Tesla
Of these new electric stars, Tesla now gets it from all sides
Polestar – a real Tesla alternative?: The rising polar star

Polestar was once a hardly known Volvo tuner. Since 2017 it has been the electrical brand of the Volvo owner and Daimler shareholder Geely-and attacks Tesla. Competition also threatens Tesla from home by the startup Rivian built with Amazon billions.
The international competition struggles to emerge according to physical strength, electropionier Tesla in terms of battery technology, flat hierarchies and efficient production. But even if the first serious electrocon -rivals for the Messianically celebrated Elon Musk and his car brand Tesla are now whispering, the manufacturer from Foreign. As almost noiselessly that happens on the street, Tesla and his foreman Elon Musk are pressing on the loading speed. That should change over the next three years and not only Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, Jaguar and Mercedes want to take current and upcoming Tesla models into the crosshairs here. In addition to the electric start-ups such as byton, Nio, Faraday Future and Co. Polestar is considered one of the most promising candidates.
Tesla: Nio, byton, BMW, Daimler – everyone wants to catch up
With the Chinese Geely mother and the design of the Swedish daughter brand Volvo in the back, the new brand may be the most important competitor for Tesla-before Audi with its successful e-tron models. The first work, the plug-in-hybrid Polestar 1, is already superior to the German hybrid competition . The first pure electric model Polestar 2 could decisively influence the electrical premium segment, with the Polestar 3 an E-SUV is planned as a competitor for Tesla Model Y. The advantage of the China Sweden is, especially compared to newcomers such as byton or Nio.

If you have already been correct, positioning and structure, after the finger exercise of the hybrid Polestar 1, once conceived as a Volvo C70 PHEV, with which purely electrical polestar 2 has a good sign that the Volvo offshoot has good signs. This is less ensured by the solid work of Volvo chief designer and Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath, but the experience that Volvo and thus also polestar from customer business with premium vehicles. In addition, there is the worldwide development competence and, last but not least. The Polestar 2 is a good and gratifying electrical work.

Geely, Volvo Polestar – concentrated electric power
Marken CEO Thomas Ingenlath is one of the few executives of a car company that does not position your own model alone against the electronics competition. "We start in a segment with the Tesla Model 3, but also BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class," says Ingenlath. And in particular, a vehicle like the Polestar 2 with its good space, competitive driving performance and high everyday benefits on one or the other market should be able to offer the German combustion limousines. Although the number two from Polestar with an overly hard sports suspension, which can be adjusted manually solely on the lift and the weaknesses of detail such as a missing head-up display or the waiver of a panoramic shade, but the polestar 2 is fresh, sporty and absolutely competitive.

The expectations of the supposed home country of China, as well as the markets in the USA and Europe with the flagship state Germany are great. And thanks to the Scandinavian genes, the smaller markets in Norway, Sweden and Denmark are likely to play a role in international sales in the first two years. Also because the European premium competition currently has hardly any electric opponents. Mercedes, Audi, Jaguar and BMW primarily rely on the particularly popular SUV or plug-in hybrids. BMW brings the electrical i4 as an electrical brother of the 4 Series Gran Coupe in autumn 2021. Even later, electrical mid -range models from Audi, VW and Mercedes come.

When it comes to sales, Polestar is similar to Tesla and almost all newcomers in the car business. You don’t even want to try it with a lengthy and complex dealer network. This saves employees, investments and commissions. The potential Polestar customers should get taste online and in image scores that are built up in large cities. In the case of service, maintenance and repair, on the other hand, you use the existing dealer network from Volvo.

The 4.61-meter-long polestar 2 is more than a 408 hp tablet, which unlike the current Volvo models can easily run over 180 km/h and offer winter suitability with its two driven axes and a possible range of over 450 kilometers. Model 3 from Tesla is faster and offers more range because it is less consumption than the almost 58, especially in real operation due to its cell composition.Polestar 2 offers 000 euros.
New models: SUV and luxury limo
The 78 kWh battery package in the underbody of the almost 2.2-ton four-seater offers a standard consumption of 19.8 kWh-reads very little on paper; In reality, Tesla is still at least one and a half steps ahead. However, this does not apply to operation, ergonomics and especially the processing, because here the two Volvo level and the new operating system from Google offers. This makes the polestar the first car manufacturer to buy the entire Android operating system and brings into the car.
Polestar Polestar Precept
This means that not only the technology there is largely identical to that of an Android smartphone, but the high-edge display in the middle of the simple dashboard also looks like the latest Samsung generation. The operation itself is simple and clear. In this way, costs can be saved and complexity can be reduced by working with an IT giant like Google who can draw from an almost infinite data pool. The smartphone that has become omnipresent as daily companion for all situations and your own vehicle are interwoven in the best possible way.While Tesla is exempted after the Model Y, the Semi truck and the cybertruck as well as possible new editions of Model S and X to both ears, the China Sweden want to attack with new models as quickly as possible. These include:
- Polestar 3 – A luxury SUV that should iron out a shortcoming of Polestar 2 – no record -breaking rich – with great battery capacity. the "Automotive week" reports: "Up to 120 kWh are possible, which enables a range of over 500 kilometers. The Polestar 3 is based on the further developed spa platform of the next Volvo XC90 and has three electric motors, two of them sit on the rear axle and should ensure extremely dynamic driving behavior."
- Polestar 4 – A show car called Polestar Precept announced an opponent for Model 3 / Model S, in the form of an elegant coupe sedan. The four -door Porsche Taycan should also be an opponent for the four.
Rivian Rivian builds electric pick-up and SUV
Rivian: With Amazon billion to the electrical victory?
Another newcomer relies less on elegance, but rather on brutal electric power for the terrain: Rivian. In contrast to the Chinese, Corona’s electric US manufacturer is hit hard, the production of the first electrical pickups and SUV is shifting to 2021.However, the Americans have two advantages that are not to be underestimated: First, Rivian, whose electrical "skateboard"-Platform various models enables large and financially strong partners on the boat with Ford and Amazon. Secondly, the manufacturer uses the most important vehicle segment in the United States that the pickups. Even the enormous pre-order numbers for the Tesla electric pickup cybertruck show that there is a potential that has not yet been exploited here.
Rivian Rivian RT1 – Comes 2021
The Rivian R1T brings a lot of cool ideas. About the huge frunker (a storage compartment under the front hood, which is possible with electric cars due to the missing petrol engine) or a continuous storage compartment directly behind the passenger cabin. The price of the electrical load is to around 62.$ $ $. That would be considerably more expensive than the top models of the normal pick-ups from Ford, General Motors or RAM (Chrysler). Customers are likely to be more of a well-heighted buyer who miss an eco-image and still want to drive a fat car. Because at the moment with pick-ups in the United States, a different drive is more popular for more efficiency: more and more of the popular cars are driving with diesel engines because they are significantly less consumed than petrol engines and with high torque are perfect for train operation. Rivian wants to change that – and at least in the upper price segment bring the electric drive to the Wild West.

so what ?
If you look at the market share that the Teslajager and the most ingenious car manufacturer … want to divide all time, then good night !!! Only the inclined car buyer will decide who hunts or falls by the wayside and nobody else. Otherwise the reports are always amusing to read !
And is still ….
-Of these new electric stars, Tesla now gets it from all sides- … But Tesla the hunted!
What is …
-The expectations of the supposed home country of China, as well as the markets in the USA and Europe with the flagship state Germany are great.- … Germany is actually not a temporary state in the media?
Concepts give it from all sides. lol
From my point of view, there would be no objection if there were finally competitive for Tesla. The greater the selection, the more interesting e-cars for buyers and the prices are also under pressure. In all concepts shown in the report, I do not have the impression that Tesla has to worry.
There was once:
The times when Janis Joplin still sang: "Oh Lord, Wont You Buy Me / A Mercedes Benz" are now definitely over for Mercedes Benz/Daimler.
It is noteworthy…
that it is not the prominent German Mercedes, BMW, or Audi electric vehicles that compete against Tesla’s electric cars, but Rivian and Polestar. German cars are already far behind!
E-mobility is good and right if we finally produce more green electricity. As long as 80-90% of our stream is not yet sustainable from wind, sun, etc. to be produced, pure electric cars are nonsense for reasons of environmental policy. The fact that we have to reduce our CO-2 emissions worldwide have understood 99% of scientists and 90% of thinking people, but pure electric cars are the second step before the first step.
That is not the case as they represent it.
Driving with electricity already brings less CO2 into the atmosphere than burning fuel. With every improvement of the electricity mix, every electric car on the street will also be better. With the combustioners we have to wait every time they are finally deregistered. E-cars now is absolutely the right step.
I drive a V70 with liquefied gas (LPG), the darling is now 18 years old, has 290.000 km on the hump. The part just doesn’t want to rust through. Volvo Sweden did something wrong…
The difference to the 18 -year -old Volvo and a Tesla is that the E – cart is already out of the assembly line as a total economic damage
I don’t understand the hype about e-cars
E-cars drive CO2-free. But why are hardly any night storage stoves installed? They too work completely CO2-free if you hide electricity production stupidly. And now here fuel eaters with electric drive are advertised as innovation, which in the end will only increase the demand for coal stream. Even today, the production of electricity from renewable energy is not sufficient to cover our complete needs. Then where does the additional need for electric cars come from? Yes, just right, from cabbage power plants or even from nuclear power plants abroad. When does this madness stop or. For example, the government merchants will once again promote private PV systems instead of causing even more damage instead of advertising electric cars.
@ Thomas Oberacker
Night storage stoves consume much more electricity than heat pumps. Consequently, they are now also encouraged. Even with an exclusive coal current, an electric car would bring less CO2 into the atmosphere than a burner. In Germany, however, we are already over 40% green electricity. PV systems also expect without funding if you use the electricity yourself.
If it is this
Alternative carriages only existed, you could perhaps give it from all sides…But the fact is, Teslas drive in the third generation, Musk harvests the laurels for his idea and the others only copy to fall on a niche solution.. Yesterday saw a post about a car driven by duck air. This is an innovation! And that comes from someone who has never earned a billion with cars beforehand. Could bet that the various. The automotive industry tries to stop this.
Is a very expensive matter! It is not for nothing that the industry goes away as far as possible and relies on, for example. Electrical tensioning technology
