How does Polestar 2 compare with a Tesla?

The 2023 Polestar 2 starts at around $49,800, similar to the 

starting price point of a 2022 Tesla Model 3 Standard 

Range Plus, per TrueCar. Also, with the Polestar 2 Long 

Range Single Motor (yes, that’s a mouthful) getting 270 

miles of electric driving range, it’s on par with the admittedly more affordable Model 3 RWD.
