The Polestar 2 model range is expanding to three variants. With two powertrains, two battery packs and optional equipment packs, the electric performance fastback now starts at £39,900– making it accessible to a wider audience.
Polestar is embracing the connected nature of Polestar 2 with the availability of over-the-air (OTA) updates. Incrementally since December 2020, Polestar 2 owners in all markets have begun to benefit from remote software updates that mean workshop visits will no-longer be required to enjoy the latest features and functionality developments.
Final build slots for Polestar 1 – the Polestar brand’s electric performance hybrid halo car – are now available. Produced in Polestar’s leading production facility in Chengdu, China, Polestar 1 will see the completion of its production run towards the end of 2021.
Polestar has confirmed it will put the Precept into production. Revealed earlier this year, the Polestar Precept started life as a “manifesto to illustrate the brand’s future vision” and was described as “a commitment car, not a concept car”.
Polestar is part of a new strategic group partnership with Waymo, opening up new opportunities for the electric performance brand. The agreement between Volvo Car Group and Waymo paves the way to develop and integrate Waymo’s fully self-driving technology in future Polestar vehicles. Polestar says that L4 autonomy will enable it to offer an attractive product to companies that provide new mobility services, targeting the premium segment.
