The teaser image doesn't reveal much other than a heavily raked fastback shape.

In 2017, Polestar became a separate company within the Volvo group focusing on performance electric cars.

The image provides an incomplete look at the Polestar 2, revealing a seemingly flat rear window joined by full width tail lights.

Since the Polestar 2 will compete with the Tesla Model 3, the company said we can expect similar pricing.

Hulk Hogan to Appear on Raw to Celebrate Gene Okerlund's Life
The passing of "Mean" Gene Okerlund has opened the door for a controversial WWE Hall of Famer to return to TV. Following word of his death, Hogan took to Twitter , saying Okerlund was "the best partner I ever had".

For those unfamiliar with the Polestar 2, it's an upcoming all-electric mid-size auto from Volvo that aims to compete toe-to-toe with Tesla's Model 3.

Polestar's press release calls the new system "Google Android HMI", though the functionality mentioned sounds exactly like what the Android Automotive demos from last year's Google I/O offered. The company is holding back additional information, though, with plans to officially debut the vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show. You can expect to see orders open up after the Polestar 1 launches; that auto starts production later in 2019. The Polestar 2 is expected to be available later this year, launching as a 2020 model.

Tesla bumps up the range of its Mid Range Model 3, slightly and announces it will start delivering Model 3s to China in March. The auto will start at around €40,000 (~$45,600), with a Care by Volvo-type subscription plan available.

Tesla may have burst onto the scene as something of a niche player with the original Roadster many years ago, but the success of the Model S unequivocally demonstrated that an electric vehicle could become a mainstream success.
