Polestar 2

Polestar 2 Car Insurance

Polestar 2 is Polestar’s new all-electric fastback in the compact electric segment. Polestar itself is, of course, the electric performance car brand jointly owned by Volvo Car Group and Zhejiang Geely Holding.

Polestar 2 is a premium five-door fastback with two electric motors and a 78 kWh battery capacity that will enable a targeted range of 310 miles. The 27-module battery pack is integrated into the floor and contributes to the rigidity of the chassis as well as improves the car’s noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels – road noise has been reduced by 3.7 dB compared to a traditional chassis.

Charging is via a connected digital solution available both in-car and on mobile devices, with collaborations to offer Polestar 2 owners access the world’s largest public charging networks.

From a performance perspective, the all-wheel drive electric powertrain in Polestar 2 produces 300 kW (408 hp) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft). This translates to a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of less than 5 seconds. Indeed the chassis can be enhanced by the Performance Pack that improves driving dynamics with Öhlins dampers, Brembo brakes and unique 20-inch forged wheels. Polestar’s signature gold seat belts, brake callipers and valve caps complete the performance visuals.

Polestar 2 is one of the first cars in the world to embed an infotainment system powered by Android which means that Google services – including the Google Assistant, Google Maps with support for electric vehicles and the Google Play Store are brought to a car for the first time.

Phone-as-Key technology enables car sharing and also allows Polestar 2 to sense the driver upon approach. Smart features like enlarged graphics in the instrument cluster allow the driver to easily see the charging status and range before entering the car. Polestar 2 can also predetermine the driver’s next move to create a seamless experience with a prepared cabin and quick start sequence.

Design-led features include Pixel LED headlights and proximity lighting which enable a unique welcome sequence, Polestar’s now-signature frameless side mirrors and the unique illuminated Polestar logo, which is reflected onto the car’s panoramic glass roof.

In common with all Polestar cars, Polestar 2 is only available for ordering online.
