Prices for the upcoming Polestar 2 have been confirmed ahead of the car entering production early next year.

The all-electric performance fastback will cost from £49,900 when initial UK deliveries commence in June 2020. Polestar says that this is before government incentives, meaning that the 2 could have up to £3,500 removed from its price via the current plug-in grant and making the on-road price to customers £46,400.

Wait, what’s Polestar again?

Polestar is Volvo’s premium EV spin-off brand, and was previously the company’s in-house performance and racing operation. The brand name comes from the Pole Star, also known as the North Star, which is prominent in the Swedish night sky. It also explains the four-pointed star logo (apparently a three-pointed star is already used by another car company…).

The catchy ‘2’ model name refers to the fact that this – wait for it – Polestar’s second model, which followed the first model, called the Polestar 9000. Just kidding, it’s called the Polestar 1 and it’s not officially sold in the UK.

This latest model gets a 300kW electric motor and all-wheel drive, as well as suite of driver assistance systems. This includes a cutting-edge version of Pilot Assist, which can aid with the vehicle’s steering, throttle and brakes.

In addition, the Polestar 2 is the first car with an infotainment system powered by Android Automotive OS. This means that the car’s system has Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play Store all integrated into it. A full high-quality Harman Kardon sound system comes as standard as well.

   

The Polestar 2 also features a phone-as-key system which, as the name suggests, allows owners to open the car and start it via a smartphone.

Thanks to a sales model which keeps digital close, all Polestar vehicles will be purchased online directly from the company. However, the firm is planning to open a number of Polestar ‘Spaces’, where interested customers will be able to test drive and experience the cars in the metal before placing orders online.
