Polestar 2 scores raft of mid-year updates

The Polestar 2 is being updated, with new colours, some additional interior choices, fresh wheels and some extra environmental friendliness. A reduction in the CO2 footprint and improved sustainability are also at the heart of changes.

Blockchain technology will be utilised via Polestar partner Circulor to trace mica and cobalt from its batteries, while materials used in the aluminium tray that carries the battery casing will now only be sourced from smelters that use renewable energy.

Polestar’s strategy on interior materials sees an increase in the use of renewable, recyclable and recycled materials, including a vegan upholstery option, as well as an improved optional Nappa leather upholstery choice, with greater sustainability credentials.

Exterior colour changes include the addition of Space (replaces Void) and Jupiter (replaces Moon). Magnesium is now the default paint scheme. New designs for the standard 19-inch and optional 20-inch wheels have come online as well.

The interior scores a Zinc colour for ventilated Nappa leather upholstery (replaces Barley), available with new Light Ash deco (replaces Reconstructed Wood). A removable sunshade for the panoramic glass roof has also been added.

The heat pump (included in the Plus Pack) has an improved optimal temperature range, now between -7 degrees Celsius and 25 degrees Celsius. An advanced cabin filter and upgraded interior particulate matter sensor also finds its way on board.

A new in-car app quantifies exterior air quality improvement in the cabin, and is available in the Plus Pack options package. Pricing for the updated 2022 Polestar 2 starts from $63,900 (plus on-roads) for the entry level single motor.

The range topping Long Range Dual Motor comes in at $73,400 (plus on-roads). Orders for the updated Polestar 2 variants are now open at Polestar.com/au
