  1. The additional manufacturer bonus probably may be the VAT to the 3000 €. But with 45.000 € is already better in the market. Overall, I find the strategy at Volvo / Polestar nevertheless somewhat immeasures.

  2. Why front drive? This is somehow completely developed against the electricity. All manufacturers offer from a good reason (traction) either rear drive or four-wheel for their new E vehicles. The front scratches do not get the power on the street. Even with our EGOLF with “only” 136hp and 290nm, the tires turn through when gives full flow at 50km / h. The Kona etc does not look different.
