Facelift Polestar 2: more power and autonomy

The electric car has been revised in terms of driving and equipment for the new model year.

Swedish electric car maker Polestar is now bringing the Polestar 2 back to the online range in a revamped version that has been optimized in many respects.

Improved battery pack

The Polestar 2 battery in the Standard Range Single Motor version has improved cell chemistry, which increases the battery capacity to 69 kWh. More energy also means more autonomy. According to the WLTP, the electric car should now have a range of up to 474 kilometers. However, the new battery also allows for a higher charge capacity of up to 130 kW. The electric motor, which now has an output of 170 kW, also benefited from the upgrade.

There are new features for all versions of Polestar 2, inside and out. In the range of colors for exterior paints, the Space and Jupiter colors replace the Void and Moon colors. If you don’t choose an optional color, you can now get your Polestar 2 in the Magnesium finish. The Swedes have also updated the design of the 19 and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Added to the equipment

If you’re not happy with the standard vegan upholstery option, you can get an even more sustainable nappa leather interior as an option. It is now available in the color Zinc, which replaces Barley, in combination with the new applications in Light Ash. Also new is a removable sun visor for the optional panoramic glass roof.

Anyone who orders the Performance package with immediate effect will also receive the standard Performance software upgrade with a maximum output of 350 kW and 680 Nm. An improved heat pump and an optimized cabin filter with fine dust sensor are always on board.

Prices for the revamped Polestar 2 start at 47,295 euros for the single engine of the standard range. The Long Range Single Motor variant costs from € 50,495, the Long Range Dual Motor version of the Polestar 2 is available from € 52,995. The modernized Polestar 2 will be delivered starting September 2022.
