Why It Matters: The Polestar 2 is the fifth most selling midsize premium car in Europe beating rivals such as the all-electric BMW i4, reported Automotive News Europe.
The car made by the Tesla Inc TSLA rival was taken out for a spin by Benzinga staffers last year.
Priced at nearly $60,000, the Polestar 2 was termed “one of the only pure-EV Tesla fighters I’ve had the pleasure of driving” by Benzinga’s John Stoll.
Price Action: On Thursday, Polestar shares surged 20.5% to $7.82 in regular trading and fell 1% to $7.74 in the after-hours session, according to Benzinga Pro data.
