The press returns to Hällered
The Polestar 2 is the result of endless design and engineering sessions, powered by Sweden's might-as-well-be-actual-rocket-fuel coffee and a determination to show the world our take on electric mobility. We're looking for any excuse to show it off, really. We'd bring a Polestar 2 to the front door of every licensed driver in the world if we could.
But since we can't (yet), we're bringing journalists to our Hällered proving ground. See a sampling of their thoughts below, and links to the articles at the bottom.

Details make a difference: Polestar 2 design and performance upgrades
Sometimes, the smallest things can have the greatest impact. A fitting sentiment from a company made up of the detail-obsessed. Since Polestar's inception, the details have been in focus. As has our ambition to constantly improve.
BST edition 270: the performance-oriented Polestar 2
Performance is relative. For most people, running 100 m in 20 seconds would be remarkable. For Usain Bolt, it would be a disappointment. Polestar 2, with its holistic, intuitive, highly engineered driving experience, is already a performance EV by many standards. With the release of Polestar 2 BST edition 270, there's now a version that brings that performance to an entirely new level.
All aboard: the Polestar Referral program
Enthusiasm is contagious. Upon discovering a new hobby, restaurant, or band that you cannot get enough of, the urge to spread the word to friends and family is never far behind. After all, sharing is caring. The path towards greater electric mobility is indeed a journey of shared excitement. And we know that getting behind the wheel of an EV can have the same impact. Which is why we're launching the Polestar referral program.
