Performance

Chassis

A car with good handling responds predictably, regardless of the road surface or driving conditions. The Polestar 2 chassis integrates the battery and pairs high torsional stiffness with a low centre of gravity to ensure a responsive, assertive drive.

All- or rear-wheel drive

Polestar 2 comes with an all-wheel drive or a rear-wheel drive powertrain, both optimized for performance and driver engagement. The newly developed asynchronous front motor, permanent magnet rear motor and silicon carbide inverter increase efficiency and torque, while the all-wheel drive system can disengage the front axle to further reduce energy consumption.

Suspension

Both the standard and the upgraded suspension are tuned to deliver a dynamic drive without compromising comfort or safety. This set-up enables an optimal connection to the road regardless of conditions.

Öhlins Dual Flow Valve dampers

Sharing the same uncompromising approach to engineering, Polestar and the suspension experts Öhlins have jointly developed the DFV dampers for Polestar 2. They can easily be configured to suit various driving environments while providing unparalleled grip, responsiveness and balance. 

Available with the Performance pack.

Twin-tube frequency-dependent dampers

Raising the standard of standard suspension, these dampers enhance handling and comfort by limiting body roll and improving car control. Combined with the compact and lightweight suspension struts and links, they add to the mechanical grip and road-holding of Polestar 2.

Adjustable steering feedback

Polestar 2's progressive power steering adapts to the car's speed, providing less feedback when moving slowly and more feedback when travelling faster. Drivers can also adjust the steering feel to their personal preference, choosing the "soft" setting for navigating city streets, "standard" for motorways and "firm" for active driving on twisty roads.

20" Performance wheels

Using a manufacturing technique developed for motorsport, forged alloy wheels are shaped by pressing rather than casting, making them lighter and stronger than conventional wheels. Together the SportContact 6 tires provide optimal handling and road contact.

Available with the Performance pack.

  1. Certified performance figures. Results may vary based on environment, road conditions, driving style, and vehicle load.
  2. EPA data. This is an electric vehicle. Since electricity is not measured in litres, a conversion factor is used to translate the fuel economy into kilometers per litre of petrol equivalent (KPLe). EPA-estimated combined 200 city/171 highway/185 combined. Your KPLe will vary for many reasons, including but not limited to, driving conditions, how and where you drive, how you maintain your vehicle, battery-package/condition, and other factors.
