Polestar – The Guiding Star
Polestar was created in 2017, 50& owned by Volvo Car Group and 50% by Geely Holding which means they can leverage when and where they need to in regards to production, logistics and distribution, technology and aftersales capabilities.
Test drives should be available soon at one of two retail spaces and regional test drive events will be announced soon across the UK.

Why are Polestar car leasing options the way to go?
When it comes to company cars, you want an electric vehicle. The reason is simple, electric cars keep costs down, for the company and the employee. While it’s easy to see how the company reduces costs; no petrol charges and limited maintenance costs are just a few advantages of an all-electric vehicle, what you might not know is how an all-electric vehicle affects the employee’s tax liability.
The savings come into play when the employee gets to use a company car for personal use. And the savings are twofold. First, there’s the company car tax. This tax is calculated based on the vehicle’s value, the vehicle’s CO2 emissions and or electric range, and if you receive fuel benefit for your private with a conventional fossil fuel vehicle, this is taxed too!
With all-electric vehicles, they automatically fall into the lowest tax bracket based on CO2 emissions and range, yes the retail price or so called P11D value is generally higher than a petrol or diesel equivalent but the benefits can still be massively in favor of the all-electric vehicle. And since all-electric cars don’t use traditional fuel, the employee isn’t left liable for an additional tax at the end of the year on that front either!
Another advantage? Reduced taxes when it comes to BIK (Benefit in Kind) taxes. These tax brackets have a wide range, and all-electric vehicles automatically fall into the lower tax bracket. This will save you thousands over the year.
Polestar 2 vs. Tesla Model 3
When it’s time to decide which luxury, all-electric vehicle is best for you, there are two popular options, Tesla and Polestar. And when it comes to the Polestar 2, the closest thing on the market when it comes to competition is the Tesla Model 3 long-range edition. The Polestar 2 is slightly cheaper than the long-range Model 3, and when you combine that with the fact that UK Carline has phenomenal Polestar car leasing deals now available, you can find yourself in a cutting edge all-electric vehicle for less than you think.
Both vehicles are all-wheel drive, and have similar ranges, although Tesla does edge out a slight advantage there.
Additionally, the Model 3 has a slightly faster 0-60 time, but the Polestar 2 can still get you there in a whopping 4.7 seconds which is pretty quick off the mark. But those numbers are so similar, it’s not a massive deciding factor.
The two significant differences? The Polestar is a hatchback while the Model 3 is a typical saloon. And despite that, the Polestar has a sportier look with sharper edges. The second difference is the fact that Polestar comes Google Connected. That means with the Polestar 2 your navigation system is integrated with Google Maps, you utilise the Google voice assistant, and you have access to the Google Play store right on your center console using the 11-inch infotainment system powered by Android.
