The 2024 Polestar 2 gets a new face, more power and longer range

Polestar has updated their Polestar 2 EV for 2024 with improved specs and a new look to the front.

“Typically in the car industry, a facelift introduces superficial visual changes that often destroy the original intention of the car’s design theme. With the new model year Polestar 2, we rather went below the surface and upgraded substantial tech and mechanical components of the electric drivetrain. This is the best Polestar 2 yet, and with the updated front design with the new SmartZone, the best looking one, too,” says Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath.

The design of the 2024 Polestar 2 takes some inspiration from the upcoming Polestar 2 SUV. Most noticeably with the new SmartZone that takes up the front grille.

The SmartZone includes sensors for an improved radar array and a front-facing camera.

For the North American market, the 2024 Polestar will now come standard with the Pilot Pack (valued currently at $4,700 CAD). This includes the Blind Spot Information System with steering support, Cross Traffic Alert with brake support, Rear Collision Warning Mitigation system, Adaptive Cruise Control, 360-degree camera, Pilot Assist, auto-dimming door mirrors and LED front fog lights with the cornering assist.

The company is also adding a wireless phone charger as standard on all models.

On the performance side, the 2024 Polestar 2 single-motor now offers a power output of 220 kW/299 hp (up from 170 kW/231 hp).

The dual-motor 2024 Polestar 2 offers 310 kW/421 hp (up from the original 300 kW/408 hp).

Polestar will also be offering an optional Performance Pack for the dual motor model that increases the power output to 335 kW/455 hp, which gets you a 0-100 km/h sprint time in just 4.3 seconds.

For range, the single-motor gets up to 483 KM (300 miles) of range and has an 82 kWh battery that supports up to 205 kW DC fast charging speeds (on compatible chargers).

The dual-motor (the standard and with the Performance Pack) gets up to 437 KM (270 miles) of range from the 78 kWh battery that supports up to 155 kW DC fast charging.

The 2024 Polestar 2 is set to go on sale later this year with Canadian pricing announced closer to launch.
