Range and charging
If you want to benefit from faster and more convenient charging at home, you can contact a specialist wallbox supplier. If you're leasing your car, ask your leasing company if they have a preferred supplier. Also, note that the purchase and the fitting of a wallbox may be eligible for government grants.
We are aware that this is happening with a few of our cars. This will not affect your warranty. We are working on a future software update which will solve the problem.
Charging timers allow you to leave your Polestar 2 plugged in but control exactly when it will charge. This is particularly useful in environments where electricity may be cheaper late at night. The charging timers can be scheduled in the car- When plugged in and not charging, the info pill will display a blue halo, indicating that a charging timer is active, and that charging will take place. It is possible to monitor and set charging timers in the Polestar app (version 3.6 required).
Note: the charging timer is not location based and will restrict AC charging according to the schedule at any location. You should keep this in mind if charging outside of regular routines where the schedule may prevent charging.
Yes. The new Range Assistant app provides a far greater amount of useful information that can help increase range confidence and improve your efficiency as an EV driver. The Range Assistant app presents two main figures to the driver: instant consumption and range. These figures are based on the driver’s current input and not a trip average. They are designed to help the driver adjust their driving style if necessary. There may be a difference between the predicted range figure in the Range Assistant app and the range shown in the driver display. This is due to the range in the app being based on instant consumption, while the range in the driver display is based on a linear average algorithm related to the SOC (state of charge).
Yes. You don’t need a new charging card to use the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition app. The charging card you received with your car gives access to all offers.
The IONITY preferential price will extend automatically. You only need to activate your Plugsurfing – Polestar edition card and add a payment method in the app. If you have an ordinary Plugsurfing card (and not the Polestar edition), this also gives access to the extended IONITY offer. Download the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition app, create a new account, activate the charging key and add a payment method
Plugsurfing is Europe’s largest e-mobility service provider with over 500 000 charging stations, but indeed not all stations are covered yet. We will in collaboration with Plugsurfing further extend the network for Polestar customers.
All customers get a Plugsurfing – Polestar edition card included in the car during handover. We cannot send the card in advance, but the customer can prepare by downloading the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition app, setup an account & payment method. After the handover, the customer pairs the card with the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition account and will receive Polestar’s preferential pricing. If you did not get a card during the handover, please reach out to Plugsurfing support.
The main benefit of Plugsurfing – Polestar edition is its wide coverage of charging stations all over Europe, as well as the convenience of not having to sign up for local services when travelling to new places. Additionally, we are providing offers via the service, such as preferential prices on IONITY.
Utilising the supplied Plugsurfing card or the linked, updated Plugsurfing – Polestar edition app at IONITY chargers will enable the preferential rate with no additional requirements for Polestar owners – no extra subscriptions, apps, authentication methods or charging tags.
The reduced IONITY rate agreement is accessible to Polestar owners who use the supplied Plugsurfing charging card delivered with their Polestar.
• The reduced rate is also accessible via the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition app, which needs to be updated to reflect the reduced pricing and must be linked to the same account as the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition card supplied with the vehicle.
• Scanning QR codes on charging stations will not validate the reduced pricing.
If your card has been lost or stolen, please deactivate it in your account in the Plugsurfing – Polestar edition app. You can order a new card via online purchase directly in the app. This also applies to customers of pre-owned Polestars. If you have any issues when ordering your card, please contact Plugsurfing support.
