Chinese electric vehicle maker Polestar to open 20 stores in mainland China

On Wednesday, Polestar, an electric vehicle maker owned by China’s Geely stated, it plans on opening 20 showrooms in the mainland, as it prepares for deliveries of its Polestar 2 electric sedan.

Polestar aims to compete with Tesla Inc’s Model 3.

Currently, Polestar has just 1 showroom in Beijing. It plans to have 20 of them in 17 Chinese cities, said the Gothenburg, Sweden-based company which is owned by Geely, in a statement. It manufactures cars in the Chinese city of Taizhou.

The number of showrooms is becoming an important metric in the Chinese electric vehicle market.

The bulk of its showrooms will be in shopping malls.
