The Polestar 2 is now even better: it changes its design, batteries, motors and, also, its technology

Polestar, the Swedish electric vehicle brand with close ties to Volvo, has announced a new update of his best known car: the Polestar 2. The new version, available later this year, will arrive with significant improvements in terms of power and range thanks to new engines and a more powerful battery. It also includes a new grille design and, for the first time, a new model with rear-wheel drive, among other novelties.

Polestar, in particular, has updated its Polestar 2 with some of the improvements that we already saw in the Polestar 3. new front grill designin fact, it’s pretty much the same as the one that comes with its electric SUV, and it also includes what the company calls SmartZonean active security system made up, in the case of the 2024 Polestar 2, of a front camera and a medium-range radar.

From the Polestar 3, the manufacturer has also inherited the 20-inch forged alloy wheelswhich now come to the Performance Pack.

The most relevant change of this new Polestar 2, however, is in the new motors and the new batteries. Those versions baptized as single engine now have rear-wheel drive, to which is added a new engine with a power of up to 299 horsepower and a torque of 740 Nm.

The sprint time is also improved. The standard and long-range versions can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 and 6.2 seconds, respectively. The dual-motor long-range variant, on the other hand, takes 4.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h thanks to its 421 hp engine, while the Performance model, with a 476-horsepower engine, goes from 0 to 100 in 4.2 seconds.
