Comparing the BMW i4 to Polestar 2 with this spec breakdown shows where each model stands and its clear that BMW takes the win. That is, if you value performance, something we should only expect from a sporty all-electric BMW Gran Coupe. Polestars electric sedan does however offer more everyday practicality.

The Polestar 2 is a really good car, with a decent price. But I prefer the looks of the i4 (more sporty and aggressive) and would also sacrifice some power and AWD in favor of the BMW. I don't like the back and side profile of the Polestar 2, too SUV like for me!

So only if the price of the i440 is beyond 80k Euro or has > 300 PS, will I go with the Polestar 2.
Someone else deciding between these two cars?
