Less need for servicing

The powertrain of a petrol or diesel car typically contains over 2000 moving parts, whereas the electric powertrain of Polestar 3 has around 50. Consequently, there’s less need for servicing as, essentially, tyres, wiper blades and the cabin air filter are the only parts that require regular attention.
