General information on the charging cable

When AC charging, use a mode 3 charging cable. Some charging stations have a permanent charging cable, while for others, you need to connect your or the car's own cable.


The information in this section concerns mode 3 AC charging for which a charging station/wallbox is permanently connected to the mains. It also involves a permanently installed charging cable or you use your own.


The charging cable is used to charge the car's high voltage battery. The charging cable has been designed to meet Polestar's safety standard. Use a Polestar-recommended charging cable that guarantees its function and safety. Polestar is not responsible for the safety of, or any damage caused by, a charging cable that is not recommended by Polestar.


Only use the charging cable provided with your car, or a replacement cable recommended by Polestar.

Charging with fixed charging cable in accordance with mode 31

In certain locations, the charging cable is installed within a charging station connected to the mains power circuit. Therefore, use the charging station's charging cable and follow the instructions at the charging station.
