Polestar 2

Top 10 most popular videos on What Car’s YouTube channel

The past month has been a very successful one for What Car?’s YouTube channel.

Primarily, this is because of the huge interest around the launch of the new electric Polestar 2. After coronavirus put the brakes on numerous new car launches for a few months, the Polestar 2 was really the first proper headline-grabbing reveal.

We followed up our successful first drive review from the launch of that car with a twin test video putting it up against the Tesla Model 3 – another car which always generates an enormous amount of interest. Unsurprisingly, that twin test has been our most popular video this month and shows the appetite for new electric car content shows no sign of slowing. Indeed, as part of the What Car? Electric Car Awards we released a video rounding up the winners and this also appears in our top 10 list this month.

But fuel-powered cars still make up a huge bulk of interest on our channel. Indeed, a return of our van reviews fronted by Edd China after lockdown has helped bring in views, and a big advertising push by Skoda on YouTube recently has meant our Skoda Superb Estate review has also picked up lots of interest.
