Polestar has officially confirmed pricing and more details regarding its low-cost single-motor Polestar 2. A report in Autoblog states that the 2022 ‘entry-level’ EV will have a starting price of $45,900 before tax incentives. That is an entire 14 grand less than the original dual-motor variant. If you are living in California, then this vehicle will only cost you $34,900 after all available tax incentives. The single-motor version of the Polestar offers an EPA-estimated range of 265 miles.
The long-range dual-motor version starts at $49,900 for and gives you another 249 miles of range.
The company is working on a mechanical heat pump that is supposed to be able to extend range in low-temperature conditions. The pump is only available as part of a $4,000 ‘Plus Pack’ that also includes a full-length glass roof and Harman Kardon audio. It also comes with vegan-friendly seating and better cabin illumination.
There is also a $3,200 ‘Pilot Pack’ which adds driver aids like blind spot warnings, a 360-degree camera, and adaptive cruise control. Then there is the dual-motor-model-only $5,000 Performance Pack which includes sport tires, gold cosmetic touches, and 20-inch alloy wheels that feature Brembo brakes.
Single-motor Polestar 2’s are expected to be delivered by the end of 2021. The updated dual-motor configurations, however, are more than likely going to show up in October. While this pricing is nice, these cars are still more expensive than the $39,900 Standard Range Plus Tesla Model 3.
