We Review the Polestar 2 Electric Vehicle

Thinking of going electric? Read our review on the Polestar 2 EV.

The future of electric vehicles is here with many of us considering electric for our new car purchase. With more and more options on the market it can be hard to know where to start. We recently had the opportunity to drive the Polestar 2 in Tasmania and it was a smooth, smooth ride which may have converted us to going electric! Watch the video here.

The Experience

The moment you slide into the driver’s seat of the Polestar 2 EV you know you are in for a special ride. Futuristic feels, the EV ‘glide’ and design-led interiors, it feels unlike any other vehicle you have driven before. We loved the simple styling and the smoothness of the ride. If you love your big, noisy cars than this won’t be for you but if you are ready to take the smooth road ahead, an EV is going to be in your future.

The ride is a little firm but hugs the road in all the right places, and it looks good doing it. Watching one of these EVs glide past you will give you serious car envy. Range and charging is every EVs Achillies heel, however the Polestar 2 gives good range – read all about it here.

The Options

The Polestar 2 model range includes three variants which combine with three optional packages – Pilot, Plus and Performance – to provide drivers with the perfect Polestar 2 that suits them.

The Entertainment

The infotainment system has been developed with Google and is integrated with Google Assistant, Google Maps and the Google Play Store so that drivers can benefit from the best voice and navigation systems in the world (Apple lovers may find this a challenge).

With a vegan interior as standard, Polestar makes sustainability a priority and will appeal to EV car enthusiasts who also want to protect our planet. We found the interior simple and efficient, however the middle console area feels a little bit restrictive between the driver and passenger. Given the nature of EVs a large screen is required so the interior is snug but perfectly comfortable.

The drive is clean, smooth and quiet and a pleasure for both open roads and city streets. If you have been thinking about making the switch to an EV, this could be the perfect vehicle for you. @polestarcars
