Polestar, the premium electric performance car maker, has announced the availability of the all-electric Polestar 2 Long range Single motor fastback in the US. In addition to being the lowest priced vehicle in the Polestar line-up, this latest model’s EPA estimated 270-mile range is the brand’s longest.

The model offers the same standard features as the high-performance dual-motor Polestar 2.

This includes the world’s first infotainment system powered by Android Automotive OS with Google built-in, a premium vegan interior, and Polestar’s chassis tuning.

All Polestar 2 owners receive Over-The-Air (OTA) updates that deliver enhancements directly to the vehicle, enabling even the oldest cars to run with the latest technology.

Recent updates include the ability to schedule charging sessions, quicker DC charging enabled by battery preconditioning, and a Range Assistant app that includes an Eco Climate function.

The Swedish company has a global sales target of approximately 65,000 vehicles in 2022. 

In September 2021, the company announced its intention to list on the Nasdaq stock exchange through a business combination with Gores Guggenheim, Inc. (Nasdaq: GGPI, GGPIW and GGPIU). 

Gregor Hembrough, Head of Polestar North America, says: “The single-motor Polestar 2 can be had for well under $35,000 in states like New Jersey, making it one of the most compelling offerings on the market. All variants of the Polestar 2 exude the brand’s leadership in cutting-edge technology with the Google infotainment system, premium sustainable materials, and unparalled avant-garde design.”
