From the outset, Polestar 2 is fully optimised. No need for aftermarket alterations. No ascending trim levels which cost more but generally amount to more chrome detailing and an unconvincing rear badge. Everything, from the design and technology, to the chassis and drivetrain, is obsessively developed to offer peak performance. Everything is turned up to ten.
For those who want to turn it up to eleven, there’s the Performance pack.
The Performance pack of the Polestar 2 features Öhlins DFV (Dual Flow Valve) dampers, forged alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, gold-coloured seatbelts, and is designed with one purpose: to provide even more of a very good thing. To further improve upon flawlessness.
