Exclusively for the Polestar 2 Long range Dual motor

  • 01.
    Extra power

    The performance software upgrade raises the motors’ combined certified output over the complete RPM register, increasing power from 300 kW (402 bhp) to 350 kW (469 bhp) and torque from 660 to 680 Nm (487 to 502 lb-ft). A boost that also reduces the acceleration time from 0-60 mph to just 4.2 seconds. 

  • 02.
    Improved responsiveness

    Apart from increasing the car’s power and torque, the performance software upgrade also changes the pedal mapping. As a result, the motors respond more quickly to the accelerator, elevating the driving experience even further. 

  • 03.
    Launch control

    For those moments when even extraordinary acceleration is deemed too ordinary, the performance software upgrade includes a launch control feature. It’s activated by simultaneously depressing the accelerator and brake pedal, preloading a higher starting torque to provide maximum power straight from a standstill. The result is a car that literally speeds up in the blink of an eye and extends its momentum over a longer period.

Good to know

As the performance software upgrade is not part of the original lease offer, you will need approval from the leasing company before purchasing the software. 

Yes, there is. We’ve developed a dedicated in-car Performance app that can be accessed from the centre display. It provides acceleration figures as well as the number of G’s that the car pulls. The Performance app can be downloaded for free from the Google Play store.
