Performance
Brake without the brake pedal

Although the Polestar 2 comes with two pedals, in most daily driving situations the right foot can stay where it is. By switching on one-pedal drive, releasing the accelerator brings the car to a halt, reversing the torque direction of the electric motors and activating the disc brakes when necessary.

Regenerative braking
A more efficient use of energy

Instead of wasting energy, the Polestar 2’s regenerative braking system converts it back into power that can be used to extend the car’s range.

One-pedal drive personified

Using just one pedal to accelerate or brake soon becomes second nature. To make it even more effortless, the Polestar 2 offers the option to adjust the braking intensity to personal preferences and requirements. Choose "Low" for more coasting on the motorway, "Standard" for more stopping power in busy city traffic or "Off", if you prefer to drive with two pedals.

Recharge while slowing down

When regenerative braking is active, releasing the accelerator or pressing the brake pedal will reverse the torque of the electric motors. This not only slows the car down but also turns the motors into generators, able to recharge the battery pack. As a result, the system turns every speed reduction into useful energy instead of just useless heat. Less speed, more energy.
