Polestar produced the 100,000th Polestar 2

In 2020, the Swedish electric car manufacturer Polestar unveiled its new car, the Polestar 2. It took only 30 months for the company to produce 100,000 units of this model.

The car is produced at the Volvo plant in China, and Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said that the company is proud of the achieved result. They are particularly pleased with the fact that the Polestar 2 was presented during the coronavirus pandemic, and the latest analyzes show that the demand for this electric car is growing.

Polestar 2 is offered in combination with one or two electric motors. The base version is powered by a single electric motor with 224 hp (165 kW) and 243 lb-ft (330 Nm). It is equipped with a 64 kWh battery pack that enables a range of up to 440 kilometers (WLTP). The most powerful version is powered by two electric motors with 408 hp (300 kW) and 487 lb-ft (660 Nm). It is equipped with a 78 kWh battery pack that enables a range of up to 480 kilometers. It also has AWD.

Currently, the Polestar 2 can be purchased in 27 countries worldwide, and in the first nine months of this year it found its way to almost 18,000 customers and remains among the best-selling electric models in the premium segment.

In the next three years, Polestar intends to expand its offer with three new models, the first of which is the recently presented Polestar 3 SUV, whose sales will begin next year. The Polestar 4 crossover coupe will arrive in 2024, and the Polestar 5 luxury sedan is expected to arrive in 2025.
