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.
To turn it up to eleven.
Perspective is everything. Travelling by plane is a blast for those who have only ever travelled by car. It’s mundane for astronauts. Electric driving is clearly the superior experience in our opinion. But we make electric cars. How do former petrol-heads feel about it? Android developers with an interest in driving? People who take road trips from Bavaria to Schleswig-Holstein and back, with a brief detour in Finland? What are their thoughts on Polestar 2?
A core principle of sustainability is future-proofing. Keeping items in use saves energy and reduces waste, as they’re thrown away or replaced less often. There are any number of ways to ensure a product doesn’t become obsolete. Durable materials. Timeless design. And OTA software updates, like the latest one available for Polestar 2.
