Polestar is all in, committed to a fully electric future. The global transition from petrol and diesel to electric cars will bring benefits both to the environment and your bank balance, not to mention an exciting new driving experience. It’s time to make a positive change.
We’re all familiar with petrol and diesel cars. How they feel to drive. The way they sound. How often they need refuelling. We’re also fully aware of the drawbacks of fossil fuels. That’s why more and more people are wondering how electric driving will fit into their everyday life. On these pages we’ll address the most common concerns people have, including electric car performance, charging station availability, and the financial implications of electric driving.
Whatever your driving style, electric cars are a pure pleasure to drive. If it’s thrills you love, electric cars can outperform conventional cars in terms of power, acceleration and handling. They’re also well suited to practical, day-to-day driving, with innovative features that make a significant difference, like one-pedal driving and regenerative braking.
The automotive industry is heading in a new, sustainable direction. Every step on the journey counts, and the movement is gaining momentum. Electric cars are a more sustainable way to get around than cars that run on fossil fuel, and can drastically lower emissions. Polestar is accelerating the change to sustainable mobility.
Many governments currently offer subsidies that you can claim when you buy an electric car. The ongoing cost of ownership is also an important consideration. As well as saving hundreds of pounds every year in fuel costs, you’ll benefit from lower maintenance costs, and possibly also from local regulations that make electric driving more financially attractive.
One of the biggest differences between conventional and electric driving is the way you think about fuel. Instead of driving to a petrol station to refill an empty fuel tank, electric cars redefine parking time as charging time. So every time you park, you plug it in and top it up. This simple behavioural change will cover your energy needs for most daily drives. And for longer journeys, there’s an extensive and ever-growing infrastructure of public charging stations.
The range you can travel in a fully charged Polestar 2 depends on which version of the car you own, your driving speed and style, and other external factors. Use our Range assistant to get a sense of how weather conditions, speed, wheel size and climate control can influence real life range.
