Polestar – Another Hot Car

polestar 2

Look, we’ve talked about Polestar quite a lot already.  You know the deal. Swedish.  Owned by Volvo.  Pretty cool.  Too cool for traditional showrooms.

Anyway, now they’ve introduced the single-motor Polestar 2 which gives a range of around 260 miles (good but not great!) and aimed at the mid-market at less than £50k.  Yes, we think that’s still a lot of money for a car, but this is a premium EV with fantastic pedigree, buckets of style and a lot else going for it.

Polestar themselves describe this new version as having two powertrains and ‘curated equipment packs’.  We’re not 100% sure what that means, but it sounds cool.

The big thing, though, is the price, making it more accessible to a far wider market.  It’s still a great EV, even without all the bells and whistles, and it’s showing the way forward for other EVs in the wider market.
