The car manufacturer announced on Tuesday that the redesigned 2024 Polestar 2 will start at $51,300, and the company plans to begin delivering the vehicles in August.

This starting price is $1,500 greater than the beginning price in 2023, but the new design year includes various changes and additions, so it is worth the extra money. The base price tag also incorporates an essential site demand of $1,400.


Polestar has been gradually expanding their product catalogue, but the new offerings that they have this year represent a significant jump in quality. An increased battery pack capacity of 82 kilowatt hours should allow the base model with one engine and rear-wheel drive to travel 320 miles, which is far further than the EPA-estimated range of 270 miles for the 2023 design.

Twin-motor all-wheel drive designs have an estimated range of 276 miles with a 78-kilowatt-hour battery pack, which is an increase from the EPA-rated range of 260 miles for 2023. Prices start at $56,700 with chosen destination. The maximum DC quick-charging price for all-wheel drive models will remain at 155 kw, but the price for one-motor models will climb to 205 kw.

The lone-motor versions are also now rated at 299 horsepower, which is an increase of 68 horsepower from the previous rating, and 361 pound-feet of torque, which allows for an estimated time of 5.9 seconds to get from 0 to 60 miles per hour. Dual-motor models generate 421 horsepower and 546 pound-feet of torque, and they can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in around 4.3 seconds.

In addition, Polestar asserts the presence of more conventional features, such as blind spot checking, cross traffic inform, park-aid sensors, a 360-degree digital video system, and auto-dimming mirrors. Additionally included on all-wheel drive models is the Pilot Pack, which includes adaptive cruise control and several additional driver assistance features.




2024 Polestar 2

Since the Polestar 2 is manufactured in China, it is not eligible for the federal EV tax credit of $7,500 that is offered for the purchase of an electric vehicle. However, Polestar was one of the first automakers to openly state in a news release that their vehicle is eligible for the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Clean Vehicle credit on lease transactions. This “EV tax credit loophole,” as it has become well known, was discovered by Polestar.

It is closely tied to the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the C40 Recharge, both of which make a transition towards rear-wheel generate or a rear-wheel bias for all-wheel push powertrains this year. This change is closely related to it.

The Polestar 2 is now the brand’s only design, but in the next year, the Polestar 3 SUV will join the lineup. Along with the applicable Volvo EX90, the development of this superior product has been slowed down because of application problems.
