Polestar Polestar 2

Segment: Compact Luxury
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2023

The electric fastback arrives in August with more power and range for the 2024 model year. The freshened Polestar 2, like its XC40 and C40 siblings from major shareholder Volvo, receives a new-generation permanent magnet electric motor and new silicon carbide inverters to help boost efficiency and performance. It also gets larger, improved lithium ion batteries.

For 2024, the single-motor Polestar 2 variant shifts from front- to rear-wheel drive. A new motor produces 299 hp, 68 hp over the current model. The car promises 320 miles of driving range.

An all-wheel-drive variant, now with a rear-drive bias, produces 421 hp and delivers up to 276 miles of driving range. The front motor can be disengaged when not needed to boost efficiency and extend range.

NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2027

A redesign is expected in the first half of 2027.
