I have cancelled my Polestar 2 order, and am going to dive into the shady flippers market. P2 delivery was pushed back to Jan. 2021, and that is too long of a wait.
I have summarised the pros and cons of the two candidates, but I am struggling to land here. These are the two actual candidates.
Can use roof rack
Has a frunk
Nicer looking inside and outside
Higher Quick Charge cost
More "cramped" up front
Cannot get rust proofing
Seeing lots of teething problems reported
VW ID. 3.
Very low quick charge cost with the Ionity network
Can get rust proofing
So far not a single problem reported, though P2 has a three week lead
Very efficient, Tesla Model 3 level of efficiency
Not as nice inside
Cannot use roof rack
No frunk for you!
Both can carry 19 banana boxes according to Bjørn Nyland, so practicality chould be a wash not considering the towing and roof rack options the P2 has.
P2 is about 20% more than the ID. 3.
EDIT: Range is similar in ideal conditions, but the lack of heat pump on the P2 will lead to shorter range on that in winter relative to the ID. 3. which has one.
