Polestar has released pricing for its updated Polestar 2 range, with hikes of between $3000 and $4000 across the line-up.

    These coincide with significant mechanical updates, including a switch from front- to rear-wheel drive for single-motor variants, and greater range.

    Local deliveries are set to begin in August.

    The Polestar 2 has also seen a significant increase in the amount of standard safety equipment.

    All models now come standard with blind-spot monitoring and assist, cross-traffic alert and assist, reverse autonomous emergency braking and a surround-view camera, though adaptive cruise control remains an option.

    Also standard across the range are a wireless phone charger and auto-dimming exterior mirrors, while there’s a new 20-inch forged alloy wheel design for the optional Performance Pack that aligns the car visually with the upcoming Polestar 3.

    Single-motor variants get a new, more powerful electric motor with 220kW and 490Nm – up from 170kW and 330Nm, respectively. That reduces the 0-100km/h time by 1.2 seconds to 6.2 seconds.

    Dual-motor variants now have a rear-wheel bias “that increases driving pleasure and performance”, with the rear motor now the primary drive source. It’s joined by a new asynchronous motor on the front axle which can be disengaged when not needed.

    Outputs are increased from 300kW and 660Nm to 310kW and 740Nm, and the 0-100km/h claim is 4.5 seconds.

    With the Performance Pack, power is bumped up to 350kW and the 0-100km/h time is cut to 4.2 seconds. This extra grunt can also be purchased and download over-the-air on any eligible Long Range Dual Motor vehicles.

    There’s a new 82kWh battery for Long Range models sourced from CATL, with DC charging speed now up to 205kW – up from 155kW. The base battery continues to be a 69kWh unit, but it’s now supplied by LG Chem.

    Range is up by 58km in the Standard Range Single Motor, 114km in the Long Range Single Motor, and 111km in the Long Range Dual Motor.

    The Polestar 2 produces 200kW of power and 490Nm of torque in single-motor variants, good for a 0-100km/h time of 6.4 seconds (6.2 seconds in the Long Range Single Motor).

    The Long Range Dual Motor produces 310kW and 740Nm with a 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds, with the Performance Pack bumping power to 350kW and cutting the sprint time to 4.2 seconds.

    Power is sent to the rear wheels in single-motor variants and to all four wheels in dual-motor variants.

    All models have a one-pedal drive mode.
