Polestar has announced a 2:3,306-pound capacity with the optional package and we’ll get it. However, it is not yet known if it will be an option or standard equipment in Canada.
That’s good news for Canadian buyers who’ve been denied the towing power of the Tesla Model 3. Now they have a new opportunity with the Polestar 2. At just over 3,300 pounds, that’s a pretty impressive number considering the hatchback’s size.

Not much, but it is already better than the Model 3 with 425 liters.
