Charging of high-voltage battery

Charging in vehicle's center display

The center display can be used to set charging level, unlock the charging cable and set charging power capacity (amperage).

Charging status in the instrument panel

The charging status is indicated in the instrument panel.

Opening and closing the charging socket cover

The cover for the high-voltage battery's charging socket opens manually.

Charging status in the vehicle's charging socket

The charging status is indicated by an LED light in the charging socket.

Charge cable

The charging cable is used to charge the vehicle's high-voltage battery.

Ground fault breaker in charging cable

The charging cable has a circuit breaker that helps protect against current overloads and thermal overheating.

Charging status in the charging cable's control module

The indicator on the charging cable's control module shows the status of charging in progress.

Temperature monitoring of the charging cable

To help ensure the vehicle's high-voltage battery is reliably charged each time it is connected, charging is stopped if the temperature in the charging cable becomes too high and reaches a critical limit.

Charging of high-voltage battery

The vehicle is equipped with a rechargeable high-voltage lithium-ion battery.

Starting charging of high-voltage battery

When charging using AC current, only use the charging cable provided with the vehicle or a replacement cable recommended by Polestar. The vehicle's high-voltage battery is charged using the charging cable between the vehicle and a 120/240 V outlet (alternating current) or charging station (mode 3).

Stopping charging of high-voltage battery

Stop charging by pressing the button next to the charging socket or the button in the center display. Unplug the charging cable from the vehicle's charging socket and then unplug the cable from the 120/240 V-outlet (AC, alternating current).

Electric propulsion symbols and messages in the instrument panel

If a fault occurs in the vehicle's electric propulsion system, a symbol and a message will appear in the instrument panel. Several examples are provided below.

Charging output

Charging output is used to charge the high-voltage batteries and precondition the vehicle. Charging is performed by connecting a charging cable between the vehicle's charging socket and a 120/240 V electrical socket (alternating current) or via a charging station.
