The Polestar 2 is the first 100% electric model of Polestar, and the former Volvo sports division converted into an independent brand.
Media such as Auto Express have wanted to check the first mass-production model of Polestar, especially against the Tesla Model 3, which has become the undisputed leader in the category of premium segment D sedan both in the United States and in Europe. For this, they have tested the new Polestar 2 in the Volvo test circuit in Sweden.
The test units equipped the Performance Pack, which adds Öhlins shock absorbers, Brembo brakes, and forged 20-inch wheels, as well as gold-colored details such as safety belts or brake calipers. Journalists have highlighted the impressive agility of the Swedish model, which can maintain a great balance even in the fastest direction changes. This helps both the set-up of the chassis and the distribution of weights (the batteries are located at the bottom, which lowers the center of gravity). The driving experience, on the other hand, is defined as fast and receptive.
It also highlights the acceleration of the car, which with 402 hp of power, a torque of 660 Nm, and total traction is capable of doing 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.7 seconds. Another aspect that journalists liked was the luxury of the cabin, made of high-quality materials.
