2024 Polaris Polestar 2 released: new front design, improved power and range

Polestar shared details about its upcoming 2024 Polestar 2. In addition to the exterior, the 2024 Polestar 2 also features upgrades to the battery and electric motor to provide more power and acceleration. In addition, the new Polestar 2 will be the first model from the brand to offer a rear-wheel drive configuration, providing a higher range.

Polestar is a relatively young electric car manufacturer that has achieved a delivery target of more than 50,000 electric vehicles in 2022.

Polestar 2, which debuted three years ago, is currently sold in 27 different markets and surpassed 100,000 total sales by the end of 2022.

The 2024 Polestar 2 features a new closed front design, called “SmartZone”, which represents the new design language for the future of the electric car brand. The SmartZone consists of several forward-facing sensors, a forward-facing radar, a heating wire, an accelerometer and ultrasonic sensors, which combine to operate as a “smart eye”.

The 2024 Polestar 2 also features a new battery and a new powertrain, and all three of the latest Polestar 2 models will have upgraded performance. The new single-motor version is now rear-wheel drive, compared to the previous front-wheel drive, a move designed to increase efficiency and improve range. The two-motor all-wheel-drive version also favors rear-wheel drive, with the aim of increasing driving pleasure and performance.

The updated two-motor version of the Polestar 2 is 14bhp more powerful to 416bhp and 59 lb-ft more torquey to 546 lb-ft thanks to a new rear motor, reducing the 0-62mph acceleration time to 4.5 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than the previous version. The rear-wheel drive version is also now faster, with a 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds (previously 7.0 seconds).

The 2024 Polestar 2 single-motor rear-wheel drive model now has a maximum EPA range of 300 miles (approximately 482.8 kilometers), up from 270 miles (approximately 434.52 kilometers) in the previous front-wheel drive version. This improvement is largely due to the inclusion of a larger battery pack, which has increased from 78 kWh to 82 kWh, and a larger battery pack that is also capable of charging at a faster rate of 205 kW (compared to 155 kW previously).

The 2024 Polestar 2 is already available for pre-order in overseas markets, with deliveries to customers expected to begin later this year.
