New Polestar 2 motors and batteries

The biggest change coming to the Polestar 2 is the addition of a larger battery pack to the single-motor standard-range model. It goes from 61 kWh to 69 kWh.

This means it now has 294 miles of range, up from 273 miles. The base model can also now be charged faster, at 130kW as opposed to 116kW previously.

There’s also an increase in power for the base model, as it now makes 230hp. This is up from 224hp in the previous car.

New Polestar 2 design

There are a few tweaks being made to the exterior design of the Polestar 2. For starters, there are new 19 and 20-inch alloy wheel designs, as well as new colours to choose from.

Inside, there are new colours for the leather upholstery, as well as the usual vegan interior option. You can also now get a sunshade for the panoramic glass roof, and some funky ash wood trims for the dashboard.

New Polestar 2 price and specs

The Polestar 2 starts from £41,900 for a standard-range single-motor version with 294 miles of range. For £44,900 you can have the extended range version with a larger battery, and this will do up to 336 miles on a charge.

If you want the top-of-the-range all-wheel-drive dual-motor Polestar 2, this will set you back £47,900. It has 408hp, so is a lot faster than the other two models. This comes at a cost however, as the dual-motor version has 299 miles of range.
