Rapid charging capacity is also improving, going to 205 kW. Thanks to the largest 82 kWh battery, the same can be said of the autonomy, no longer valued at 435 km but 515 km. This last figure places the Polestar 2 propelled between the Hyundai Ioniq 6 (581 km) and the Tesla Model 3 (438 km).

On the design side, it adopts a closed grille called “smartzone” (housing among others the front camera and the medium -range radar), while its 19 inch wheels can now be fitted with Michelin tires all seasons. Those of 20 inches optional have been redesigned by imitating the rims of the future Polestar 3 multiser, but they decrease the autonomy at 494 km.

The serial safety equipment is also improved by adding the monitoring of the dead angles with management assistance, parking sensors and the 360 ​​-degree visualization system.

Better with two engines, but ..

Anyway, if you are really in a hurry, this Polestar 2 will bring you to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds. Brembo brakes will be very useful to you later! Let’s not forget the adjustment of the Polestar Engineed chassis with Öhlins shock absorbers.

Detail to underline: the front engine can be completely decoupled when its contribution is not required, all in order to improve the energy performance of the car. In the end, the autonomy is positioned at 444 or 428 km depending on if you choose the 19 or 20 inch wheels. Please note: battery capacity remains at 78 kWh and fast recharge is always made up to a maximum of 155 kW only.

The set Plus, the price of which was lowered from $ 5,700 to $ 3,000, adds a heat pump, a Harman Kardon audio system, a panoramic roof, a steering wheel and heated rear seats as well as a system of purification of the ‘indoor air. Several Canadians will prevail.
