One Pedal Drive

There are three different levels of One Pedal Drive that indicate the regenerative braking effect that is controlled by the accelerator pedal, without using the brake pedal.

The car is set in Standard mode when it comes from the factory. Adapt the braking action based on the driving situation the car is used in, e.g. for winter road conditions.

Polestar recommends regular hard braking with the friction brake to avoid problems with the brake discs caused by inactivity, such as rust or dirt accumulation.
