Polestar 2 how-to videos


As well as its LED headlights, the Polestar 2 also comes equipped with several smart interior and exterior lighting features. Find out more about how they work below.

Welcome and farewell lighting

Unlock the car and the lights say hello. In daylight, position lamps, interior roof lamps, floor lights and cargo area lighting are activated. In darker conditions, the headlamps, number plate lighting and lighting in the outer handles also switch on. When you leave the car after driving, the position lamps and number plate lighting stay on for approximately 2 minutes, or until the car is locked. Tap More on the centre display to turn the exterior light sequences on or off.

Interior lighting: overhead console

Tap the button in the centre of the roof console to switch on the interior lights. Tap it again to switch them off. Press and hold the panel on the left or right light until it fades to the preferred level of brightness. The small roof lights by the doors can be switched on and off with a quick swipe.

Interior lighting: ambient and mood lights

The brightness of the Polestar 2’s ambient and mood lights can be adjusted in the Interior lights menu on the centre display. Choose between off, low or high intensity for the lighting around the doors, centre console and boot, and for the Polestar symbol on the overhead console.

Active main beam

Turn the left-hand stalk switch to position to turn on the active main beam. You’ll see an illuminated symbol glowing white in the driver display, and the rotating ring will return to its starting position. When the main beam is activated, the symbol will shine blue, instead of white.

Activating light sequences

On the centre display, tap More, and then Exterior lights. Now you can tap to toggle the Light Sequences on or off. 

Setting home safe duration

Tap More on the centre display, then select Exterior lights. The Home Light Safe duration options at the bottom of the screen allow you to choose whether you want the car’s exterior lighting to remain illuminated for 30, 60 or 90 seconds after you exit the vehicle. Choose your preferred option, then push the left-side steering wheel lever toward the dashboard and release. The symbol illuminates in the instrument panel to indicate that the function is activated and the parking lights, headlights, license plate lighting and door handle lighting switch on.
