As part of its recently announced 2022 lineup, Volvo subsidiary Polestar has introduced a new single-engine variant of its Polestar 2 electric sedan. If you’re waiting for an EPA estimate before booking one, wait no further. Polestar announced Wednesday that you can expect to get about 270 miles of range on a single charge of the car’s 75 kWh battery.
This puts the FWD model in a car company like the Volkswagen ID.4 and Model 3. With entry-level models of these two cars, you can expect 249 miles and 263 miles of range, respectively. That’s not a bad thing considering the Polestar 2’s starting price of $47,200, but it’s not as good as the 303 miles of EPA-rated Hyundai’s range that it would offer with the $44,875 version of the Ioniq 5.
The automaker also announced today that it’s rolling out an over-the-air update for all Polestar 2 vehicles. The new software lets you schedule when you want to charge your vehicle, so you can take advantage of off-peak pricing. The update also includes improvements to the vehicle’s driver assistance systems. In the coming months, Polestar plans to release a software upgrade that will allow Polestar 2 twin-engine owners to unlock additional torque and horsepower from their vehicles for a fee.
