Polestar 2 electric vehicle charging

Everything Polestar 2 drivers need to know about charging their electric vehicle

Polestar is one of the new disruptors in the EV space. As Volvo's electric-vehicle brand, it aims to combine high-tech features with a modern Swedish look. After the debut of Polestar’s first hybrid electric vehicle, the Polestar 1, Polestar introduced the fully-electric Polestar 2 in 2021. A serious contender in the EV space, rivaling the Tesla Model 3, the Polestar 2 is a fun and comfortable ride with an elegant Swedish design.



Polestar 2 charging & range

The Polestar 2 is a full-electric vehicle and comes with a large battery pack and an electric motor that powers the front wheels—or two electric motors for EV owners and buyers who want an all-wheel-drive configuration. According to the EPA, the single-motor 231 horsepower version ($45,900) offers up to 270 miles of range, while the dual-motor 408 horsepower version ($49,900) delivers 249 miles of range. For those EV owners who feel the need for speed, the dual-motor version with an electric motor on both axles can to go from 0 to 60 mph in a swift 4.1 seconds.


Included in the Polestar 2 is the Android infotainment system, which comes loaded with Google Assistant, Google Maps, and the Google Play Store.


Add-ons for the Polestar 2 include the Pilot Pack, Plus Pack, or Performance Pack. The Pilot Pack includes driver assistance tech features such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a 360-degree camera, and front/rear parking sensors. The Plus Pack consists of a heat pump (which can increase range by up to 10 percent), panoramic moonroof, and a Harman Kardon premium audio system. For those looking for a sportier ride, the Performance Pack (only available in the dual-motor all-wheel drive version) adds Öhlins suspension dampers, Brembo brakes with “Swedish gold” calipers, Continental sport tires, and 20-inch wheels.


The Polestar 2’s relatively fast onboard 11 kW charger means the pack can be charged from empty to full in about 4 hours of charging time. To achieve that rapid charging speed, electric car owners should install a capable 32-amp charging station such as the JuiceBox 48. Using the JuiceBox 48 EV charger with a 240-volt supply of home energy is much faster than a Level 1 charging cord, which requires 21 hours of charging time for a full charge via a 120-volt trickle charge.
