Google built-in

Polestar 2 was the first car to feature a native Android Automotive operating system, bringing truly intuitive infotainment to the driving experience. Because of Polestar’s partnership with Google¹, the in-car software continues to make life on the road easier with every update.

Polestar 2 comes with secure high-speed internet access to browse the web, use in-car apps, stream music and podcasts, get real-time traffic information and download the latest software updates. Because of the included three-year data coverage, Polestar 2 provides the most optimised functionality without exceeding the car’s bundle.

Over-the-air updates

Fully future-proof. Polestar 2 receives regular over-the-air updates for its infotainment system, apps, and car systems. The car automatically notifies the driver when the new software is ready to install, so it stays as cutting-edge as when it was first released.

Centre display

All Polestar 2 software runs on Android Automotive OS, integrating the infotainment system with the cars technical systems. Various performance and safety functions can be controlled directly from the centre display, using a clean, intuitive and minimalistic interface.

Driver display

Don’t get distracted. Polestar 2’s 12.3” digital driver display has two preconfigured modes, only showing the essential information. In Calm mode it displays the car’s speed and battery status, while Navigation mode focuses on route planning and traffic updates. 

Navigation mode displays the current route map and directions.

Driver profiles

Polestar 2 can automatically store preferred settings for up to six drivers, linking the information to the signal from the key fob or the Polestar app. Upon detection, the in-car software recognises the driver profile and loads the matching seat position, mirror adjustments, steering feel, and one-pedal drive settings. It'll also bring up favourite apps and playlists.

Voice control

A car that really hears you. Because Polestar 2 comes with Google¹ built-in, it also comes with the voice recognition capabilities of Google Assistant. These allow the driver to control music, climate settings, and other functions while their eyes stay on the road and their hands stay on the wheel. Just say “Ok Google” to get started.

In-car apps

Forward-thinking functionality. Polestar 2’s infotainment system runs a range of familiar apps, optimised for the in-car experience. Planning routes, streaming music, or paying for a parking spot can all be done without a smartphone, while some apps interact with the car’s systems to unlock an even more enhanced driving experience. Updates and new apps can be downloaded on Google Play¹, using the centre display.
