Polestar 2 gets cheaper versions with 540 km of autonomy


The Polestar 2 will now have two new versions with an electric motor only. While the first model promises to be a “cheap” version of the 100% clean energy car, the second focuses on autonomy, announced between 510 and 540 km – the highest of this variant with only one engine.

As usual in the automotive industry, even more so with electric cars, other cars appear first with their main model and then the “cheaper” versions appear. In the case of Polestar it is not different, but the novelty of the Swedish brand connected with Volvo is the use of only one electric motor, mounted on the front axle and front wheel drive.

The first version presented is “Standard Rang Single Motor”. The entry-level car has a power of 165 kW (224 horsepower) and 33.5 kgfm, with a 64 kWh battery that guarantees a range between 420 and 440 km.

The second option was called “Long Range Single Motor”, with an engine of 231 horsepower and 33.5 kgfm. In this Polestar 2 model, 78 kWh was maintained and the range increased to something between 510 and 540 km. For colder areas where temperatures interfere with battery efficiency, an optional heat pump increases the maximum capacity by 10%.

These new versions of the Polestar 2 with one electric motor have 19-inch wheels, LED lights, a high-quality audio system, as well as cameras and parking sensors, a raised seat with processed materials and an entertainment system and. touch screen of 11 inches.

In addition to the two new versions announced, the small Volvo brand already sells the previous version of the Polestar 2, with two electric motors, one for the axle, which allows to reach a power of 408 hp, accelerating from 0 to 100 km. /h in less than 5 seconds and is between 450 and 480 km. Note that all car models do not register differences in design.

In Europe, Polestar says these versions will be cheaper, between €40,000 and €60,000. North American pricing will be announced in the coming weeks and the cars are not expected to arrive in other regions.

Currently, in the United States, the most basic version of the Polestar 2 costs $ 60,000 (about R $ 340,000), but single engine options are expected to reduce the price.
