Range and charging
With two long-range versions and featuring a 100 kWh battery, Polestar 4 is more than capable of going the distance. The dual-motor powertrain includes a front motor disconnect function, enabling the car to prioritize efficiency over performance.

The real-world range of an EV is influenced by driving style, weather, and road conditions and the condition of the car itself. A calmer driving style, preheating the cabin while charging, and looking after the tires are effective ways to get even more kilometres out of a charge.More on range factors
Polestar 4 allows for a variety of public charging options. En route, plugging into a DC rapid charger tops up the battery in the time it takes to get some lunch or a coffee. Hotels, shopping malls, and municipalities tend to provide slower AC chargers, more suitable for longer stays.

Save time by charging to 80%
On a long trip, it's actually faster to top up to 80% (with a DC charger) than to charge to 100%. This is due to the fact that the final 20% capacity of a lithium-ion battery charges at a much slower rate.
Charging on the go is becoming easier by the day. There's an ever-growing network of public charging locations in Canada, ranging from dedicated charging stations to city-owned parking spaces and grocery stores.EV charging network
Battery-minded route planning
The integrated version of Google Maps¹ interacts with the car's systems and checks the battery status. It can calculate and suggest a route accordingly, including convenient charging options along the way.
The most convenient and inexpensive way to charge an electric car is at home, using an AC wallbox. Polestar 4 works with any available model, charging up to 11 kW. Our local home charging partners can ensure an uncomplicated selection and installation process.

Charging without a private parking space
Whether it's utilizing a nearby public charger, topping up at work, or sharing a charging point with fellow residents, there are plenty of alternatives available if installing a home charger isn't an option.
Extending the range
Our engineers went the extra mile to get Polestar 4 to do the same. The heat pump, regenerative braking system, and climate control are built-in solutions that maximize power reuse and extend the range.
Energy-saving heat pump
Waste heat doesn't need to be wasted heat. Using thermal energy from the electric motors, battery, and ambient air, the heat pump can warm up the cabin and helps to get more kilometres out of a charge by reducing demand from climate control.
Recharge while braking. Instead of turning useful energy into useless heat, the regenerative braking system converts it back into energy that can be used to extend the car's range.
Pre-entry climate control
Pre-heating or pre-cooling Polestar 4 while charging or plugged in can save energy by reducing the demand from climate control. It extends the car's range and sets a comfortable cabin temperature before driving off.
The dual motor powertrain can be optimised for range by changing the power delivery setting on the centre display. After doing so, a clutch will disengage the front motor to increase efficiency and re-engage it when the driver fully depresses the accelerator.
