Range and charging


Polestar 2 provides four powertrain options, each with an upgraded battery to get even more miles out of a charge. The right driving and charging behaviour can further increase the car’s real life range.

Range factors

The real-world range of an EV is influenced by driving style, weather, and road conditions. A calmer driving style, pre-climatising the cabin while charging, and looking after the tyres are effective ways to get even more kilometres out of a charge.

Public charging

Polestar 2 works with DC charging up to 205 kW. The growing number of public charging stations means charging is not only quick, but convenient, too.

Save time by charging to 80%

On a long trip, it’s actually faster to stop twice and top up to 80% than to stop once and 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. 

Battery-minded route planning

Because Polestar 2 comes with Google¹ built-in, the in-car version of Google Maps can communicate with the car’s systems to check the battery status. It will calculate and suggest a route accordingly, including convenient charging options along the way.

Home charging

Polestar 2 works with any available AC wallbox model and charges up to 11 kW for a convenient and inexpensive top up. Home is where the charge is, after all.

Charging without a private parking space

Whether it's using 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

Polestar 2 has been engineered for optimal energy efficiency, allowing the driver to extract even more miles from the battery. These features help extend the car’s real-life range. 

Energy-saving heat pump

Waste heat doesn’t have to be wasted heat. Using thermal energy from the electric motors, battery, and ambient air, the heat pump warms up the cabin and helps to get more miles out of a charge. 

Available as an upgrade.

Regenerative braking

Recharge while slowing down. Instead of turning useful energy into useless heat, the regenerative braking system of Polestar 2 converts it back into power that can be used to extend the car’s range.

Pre-entry climate control

Pre-heating or pre-cooling Polestar 2 while charging saves a significant amount of battery power compared to using climate control while driving. It extends the car’s range and sets a comfortable cabin temperature before the driver gets in.

19” Aero wheels

Combined, the 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheel and provided aero inserts become the 19-inch aero wheel. The wheel utilises less materials, precision engineering, and a refined aerodynamic design to improve the car’s real-world range and efficiency by up to 3%. The aero inserts can be removed to access the wheel bolts.

In-car range assistant

Get range guidance in real-time. The in-car range assistant app monitors speed, driving style, and climate settings to present instant updates of the car’s energy consumption on its home tile. It can also show the projected range on the driver display and activate ECO-climate, automatically adjusting the climate system to go the extra mile(s).
