Pricing for the Polestar 2 electric performance fastback has now been confirmed for all European launch markets. The new model enters production in early 2020 and initial deliveries will begin from June. UK prices start at £49,900.
The Polestar 2 has “an extremely high specification for initial production”, including options such as the Pilot package and Plus package. Routine servicing and maintenance, for the first three years, with pick-up and delivery, is also included.
The 300 kW all-wheel drive powertrain has a large 78 kWh battery pack which offers “range flexibility and a dynamic drive”. The car features a suite of driver aids, including the advanced Pilot Assist. A panoramic roof and pixel headlights are also fitted.
The infotainment system powered by Android Automotive OS is claimed to be a first for any vehicle. This solution delivers Google Assistant, Google Maps and the Google Play Store, promising a truly seamless digital experience. Phone-as-Key is intended further to underline the digital nature of the vehicle, while a Harmon Kardon sound system is also included.
“We have seen very keen interest in Polestar 2 since revealing it earlier this year. By confirming European pricing, we show the outstanding value this high specification vehicle represents,” commented Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer of Polestar.
Reservations are currently possible at Polestar.com where prospective buyers can reserve their place in the queue with a fully refundable deposit.
With a digital retail model, all Polestar cars will be purchased online and directly from Polestar. The brand will be opening Polestar Spaces where Polestar Specialists will be able to assist customers with product information and test drives. The first of these inner-city locations will open before the end of 2019, with a total of 50 spaces planned globally by the end of 2020.
