Polestar is adding two lower-cost variants of its first mass-market car to better challenge the Tesla Model 3.
The most affordable Polestar 2, with a front-mounted single electric motor and a 64-kilowatt-hour battery, will start at 45,500 euros in Germany before incentives.
By comparison, the starting price for the base version of the Tesla Model 3 with a 50-kWh battery is 39,990 euros in Europe's largest auto market.
The entry Polestar 2 will have a range of 420 to 440 km (261 to 273 miles) and 330 newton meters (243 pounds-feet) of torque, the company said Tuesday.
The entry Model 3's range is 448 km and it offers 402 newton meters of torque, according to the company.
Previously, only the range-topping, dual-motor Polestar 2, with a 78-kWh battery, a range of 450 to 480 km and 660 newton meters of torque, was available. It starts at 51,500 euros in Germany.
Polestar is also adding a mid-range single-motor variant for 48,500 euros. The variant promises the best range of the trio: 515 to 540 km.
