Polestar has announced the extended range, lower pricing, and bespoke configuration for the model year 2022 Polestar 2. The car features a new single motor powertrain and has the greatest range of a Polestar 2 to date, the company says. Also new for 2022 is an optional heat pump, which is designed to extend the vehicle’s range up to an additional 10% under certain climate conditions.
The new Polestar 2 Single Motor offers the lowest price and longest range in the lineup, with an estimated range of 265 miles and a starting price of $45,900, or as low as $34,900 after qualified federal, state and utility incentives. Customers can also add on the available Plus and Pilot Packs to enhance the specification of their vehicle. Deliveries are expected to begin at the end of 2021.
The Polestar 2 Dual Motor is now available for bespoke configuration. Starting at $49,900, or as low as $38,900 after qualifying incentives, the Dual Motor Polestar 2 has 408 HP and an EPA range of 249 miles, an increase of 16 miles over the 2021 car’s range. As with the single-motor Polestar 2, Plus and Pilot packs are available to order. The dual-motor Polestar 2 also can be ordered with a Performance pack, and deliveries are expected to begin in October of 2021.
These new variants can be ordered with three optional packs:
