The 2022 Polestar 2 EV features increased range at lower price point

The new Polestar 2 Single Motor offers the lowest price and longest range in the lineup, the company says.

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:

  • The Plus Pack ($4,000) debuts a mechanical heat pump, which is designed to extend the vehicle’s range by up to 10% under certain conditions. This pack also features a full-length panoramic glass roof, an interior featuring a Harman Kardon audio system, WeaveTech vegan upholstery and “high-level” interior illumination.
  • The Pilot Pack ($3,200) offers enhanced safety and driver assistance features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Pilot Assist, Blind Spot Information System (BLISTM), Cross Traffic Alert, along with a 360-degree surround view camera and all-round parking sensors, plus more advanced safety features.
  • The Performance Pack ($5,000) features adjustable Öhlins suspension dampers supporting the front and rear forged 20-in. alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, Continental sport tires, and Polestar’s signature “Swedish gold” aesthetic details. (Only available on Polestar 2 Dual Motor.)
  • Additional single options include a ventilated Nappa leather interior ($4,000), 20-in. wheels with unique spoke pattern ($1,200), a semi-electric tow bar ($1,200) and metallic paint ($1,200).

All versions of the Polestar 2 feature Google’s Android Automotive OS native infotainment system with key features such as Google Assistant and Google Maps built-in.
