An Attainable Electric Luxury Sedan - The 2022 Polestar 2
Formerly Volvo's performance division, Polestar now focuses on pure-electric and plug-in hybrid models that still provide some of the safest vehicles on the market but now in an electric luxury sedan form. Polestar's 2022 Polestar 2 definitely fits the electric luxury sedan bill, offering an upscale cabin environment, unique exterior styling, and a price that makes it more practical than other vehicles in its class.
What's New for 2022
The biggest news about the 2022 Polestar 2 is significantly reduced prices that make the vehicle more affordable for buyers wanting an electric luxury sedan but not being able to afford offerings from the competition. In addition, a new front-drive configuration was added, which offers a range of 427 km, and the dual-motor model increased its range to 400 km.
Models and Pricing
Polestar offers two versions of the 2022 Polestar 2: a long range dual motor and long range single motor. The long-range single motor model starts at $49,900, while the long-range dual motor version starts at $56,900.
The single motor variant features the single motor mounted on the front axle, while the dual-motor provides all-wheel drive for better traction in all weather conditions. Both models are similarly appointed, though the dual-motor model unlocks an optional Performance package that drivers can add to gain 20-inch wheels with performance tires, upgraded brakes, and adjustable dampers.
Drivers that opt for the standard Long range Single motor Polestar 2 will see 231 horsepower, a 427 km range, and a 7.0-second 0-to-100 km/h acceleration time.
The 2022 Polestar 2 Long range Dual motor model delivers 408 horsepower, a 400 km range, and a 4.5-second 0-to-100 km/h acceleration time. This is impressively quick, and the previously mentioned Performance package caters to drivers who want more from their vehicle.
The 2022 Polestar 2 offers a modern and artful interior that is futuristic without being overwhelming. Wood, fabric, and plastic combine to offer a luxury cabin environment with clean lines and a less-busy interface. In terms of space, the Polestar 2 offers comfortable space for five passengers and delivers almost 400 litres of cargo capacity in the trunk and another 28 litres in the front cargo area.
A vertically oriented tablet-like infotainment touchscreen draws the eye to the dashboard, offering a 11.2 -inch display through which Google's Android Automotive OS infotainment system seamlessly runs what drivers need. This includes Google Maps as the integrated navigation system. A Harman/Kardon audio system, satellite radio, and four USB ports (two in the front and two in the rear) also come standard.
Polestar takes safety and security seriously, just like its Volvo brethren. It comes standard with automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring to provide added peace of mind.
