Volvo's Polestar Brand is Open for Electric Business - Ride by Kelley Blue Book
The brand plans to locate stores in hip, high-traffic urban shopping areas, rather than the suburban strips and auto malls where most dealers set up shop. While the spaces will be owned by existing Volvo dealers, not Polestar itself, they’ll operate more along the lines of Tesla’s model: Low-pressure brand showrooms staffed by non-commissioned product experts. Cars can be ordered online or in stores, and will be available for test drives, but there’ll be no service bays on site. Instead, Polestar will pick up cars from owners’ homes or workplaces, service them at franchised Volvo dealers, then return them. The brand says that consumers in all 50 states could theoretically order a Polestar; though it’s hard to envision someone in, say, Kansas securing a Polestar that her local Volvo dealer isn’t prepared to support or service.

2021 Polestar 1 Is a Plug-In Hybrid Concept Car Brought to Life
The first offering from Volvo's electric-luxury-performance brand brings a Swedish take on exclusivity, technology, and design.
Ready or not, another automotive brand will hit the already crowded market in February 2020. That brand is Polestar—a joint venture between Volvo and its parent company, Chinese automaker Geely—and its first product is, naturally enough, the 2021 Polestar 1. Unlike the way that Mercedes-AMG models generally are hotted-up Mercedes-Benzes, Polestar models will not be modified Volvos. They will be unique vehicles, though they will share parts, platforms, and architectures with their corporate siblings. (Polestar has its own headquarters located in Volvo City in Gothenburg, Sweden.)
HIGHS: Elegant styling, solid performance, best electric range of any PHEV.
As a high-end 2+2 grand tourer with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, think of the Polestar 1 as a Swedish take on a BMW 8-series coupe. You'll be able to buy one through Polestar dealers, which will be primarily sales showrooms located in affluent city centers or shopping malls. Each Polestar store will be owned by an existing Volvo dealer, though only a minority of Volvo outlets will get one. Maintenance and service will be handled at these associated Volvo shops, though Polestar owners won't see this, as the cars will be picked up and returned to them at their convenience.

Six cars aced new pedestrian detection tests | Ars Technica
The top performers were made by Audi, Subaru, Nissan, BMW, Mercedes, and Volvo.
After reaching an all-time low in 2009, the number of pedestrian fatalities caused by cars has been on the rise in recent years. New technology has the potential to change that. A new report from the Insurance Institute for Highway Studies (IIHS) ranks 16 mid-sized cars on the performance of their pedestrian-detection systems.
Six of the cars earned "superior" ratings, indicating that they were able to stop—or slow down significantly—in each of the six scenarios tested by IIHS. These vehicles were the Audi A4, BMW 3 series, Subaru Outback, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Nissan Maxima, and Volvo S60.
All of these vehicles except the Mercedes achieved superior performance with the standard equipment. The Mercedes C-Class achieved a superior rating for its optional "Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function" but only a "basic" rating with the standard package.
Surprisingly, BMW's ratings went the other way: the standard equipment on the 3 series achieved IIHS' highest rating, "superior," while a vehicle upgraded to BMW's Active Driving Assistant Professional package flubbed some tests, earning it a lower "advanced" rating.
Systems from Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Nissan, Tesla, and Toyota also earned an "advanced rating"—a sign that they passed some tests and failed others. The Chevy Malibu got a lower "basic" rating, while optional systems from Ford, Hyundai, and Kia failed to get any credit in the tests.
