Spotted in Hällered: Polestar 2

There's no shortage of sightings out in Hällered. Moose, deer, wolverines, hawks and more have all been spotted out in the wooded areas of western Sweden. Even 5-door all-electric fastbacks.

The Polestar 2 is out of the production facilities and into the world. The verification prototype cars (an early build of the car for testing purposes) are now being driven on the variegated roads of the Hällered Proving Ground and its surroundings.

At this stage, everything is being tested. This is the first real-world experience the Polestar 2 is getting, and therefore, all the input is valid. Acceleration, handling, aerodynamics, braking, charging, responsiveness, and many more aspects are being exhaustively tested, all among the towering pines and lashing rain of Sweden.

Now there’s something new to see in the forested groves of Hällered. And it has 660 Nm (486 ft-lb) of torque.
