Volvo Polestar 2 Performance

Polestar 2 Performance

REVIEW

So, what’s a Polestar and why does it look like a Volvo? Well that’s a good question – Polestar used to be Volvo’s performance tuning arm, but now it has been created as it’s own brand with hybrid (Polestar 1) or full EV vehicles (Polestar 2 and more) in its lineup. This is the second car they’ve released – the Polestar 2 and is a medium sized SUV-Crossover designed from the ground-up as an EV. So as with all Polestars there are clear Volvo styling links all over the car, but they are always a little less conventional – for example this is a fastback design with a hatchback, but raised up with SUV-style ground clearance and visibility. Inside is an absolute dream with a clean Scandinavian style to it and all the tech you could want, while under the skin sits a 402bhp AWD motor setup with a 78kWh battery. This means 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds and around 311 miles or range – more than enough for most people. These ground-up EVs are all starting to come to market now and this Polestar 2 is a fantastic example of how it can be done with cool, Scandi style and still get all the range and performance you want.
