Polestar is preparing a restyling for its access model, the Polestar 2. The compact sedan, whose update is scheduled for the middle of next year, will debut a slightly revamped exterior design; In addition, it is expected that it will also have some adjustments at the chassis level and new software.
Although the units captured in the Alps by our photographers were covered by camouflage, it can be seen that both the grille (which will have a new framework of vertical blades) and the bumpers will be new. However, a priori everything seems to indicate that neither the side nor the rear will receive changes.
The passenger compartment will also be updated, and although it should keep its design practically unchanged, it will release new materials that will improve the perceived quality of the whole. The chassis for its part will have a new set-up, although it is not clear if these modifications will come exclusively to the most performance versions of the range.
It is not yet known if the restyling will affect the power of its motors, the capacity of its batteries, or the charging times. In any case, it is most likely that both performance and autonomy will improve thanks to a software update that will allow the Swedish model to remain competitive against rivals such as the BMW i4 or the Tesla Model 3.
The Polestar 2 offers up to 551 kilometers of autonomy
Currently, the Polestar 2 range is made up of four variants, which will probably remain without too many changes after the restyling:
- Standard range Single motor: front-wheel drive (one motor), 231 hp (170 kW), 330 Nm, 0-100 km/h in 7.4 seconds, 69 kWh battery, 478 km WLTP autonomy, charging at 130 kW in direct current (10-80% in 35 minutes)
- Long range Single motor: front-wheel drive (one motor), 231 hp (170 kW), 330 Nm, 0-100 km/h in 7.4 seconds, 78 kWh battery, 551 km WLTP autonomy, charging at 155 kW in direct current (10-80% in 35 minutes)
- Long range Dual motor: all-wheel drive (two motors), 408 hp (300 kW), 660 Nm, 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, 78 kWh battery, 487 km WLTP autonomy, charging at 155 kW in direct current (10-80% in 35 minutes)
- Long range Dual motor Performance Pack: all-wheel drive (two motors), 476 hp (350 kW), 680 Nm, 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, 78 kWh battery, 487 km WLTP autonomy, charge at 155 kW in direct current (10-80% in 35 minutes)
