Touch its door handle and the Polestar 2 knows who you are. The car recognizes your key fob or your smartphone and adapts to your personal preferences. Seat position, mirror settings, steering feel and one-pedal drive are all automatically adjusted to your liking. It'll even cue up your favorite playlist.
The Polestar 2 doesn't just remember who you are. It can also keep track of what you asked it to do a couple of days ago. Thanks to a feature called "suspended state," you can leave your car on Friday night and continue where you left off on Monday morning. When it detects your phone, it will immediately wake up and return to the playlist, apps, volume and other settings you chose before.
Say goodbye to a freezing interior on a cold winter morning. Bid a happy farewell to Sahara-like temperatures when your car has been parked in the sun. In the near future, you will be able to set the climate controls in advance either via the Polestar app or in the car itself, with separate timers for each day of the week. A handy feature that makes you more comfortable and extends the car's range, as energy-intensive cooling and heating take place while it's charging.
The onboard software of the Polestar 2 is already prepared to connect to your smartphone through a secure wireless connection. Soon, you'll be able to download a new version of the Polestar app that allows you to check the vehicle status and control other car functions before you even get behind the wheel. The Polestar 2 senses the app on your phone and automatically adjusts the seat position, mirror settings, steering feel and one-pedal drive to your liking. Other features like pre-entry climate control and a digital key function are also under development.
The personal preferences in a Polestar 2 go beyond seating position, mirror settings, temperature adjustment, and favorite apps and playlists. It is also possible to customize steering feel and set the amount of regenerative braking power when you use one-pedal drive. Whether it's responsive handling or relaxed cruising, the car can instantly be adjusted to suit the driving style of whoever's behind the wheel.
