As part of a recent publication , Volvo subsidiary Polestar has introduced a new single-engine variant of its Polestar 2 electric sedan. If you were waiting for an EPA assessment before booking it, don’t wait any longer. You can expect a range of about 270 miles with a single charge of 75 kWh of car battery, Polestar announced on Wednesday.
This puts the FWD model in the company of vehicles like and . With the 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 starting price of the Polestar 2 of $ 47,200, but not nearly as good as the 303 miles of EPA rankings that Hyundai will offer with its $ 44,875 version
The carmaker also announced today that it is introducing an over-the-air update for all Polestar 2 vehicles. The new software allows you to schedule when you want your car to charge, so you can take advantage of prices outside of business hours. The update also includes improvements to car driver assistance systems. In the coming months, Polestar plans to release a software upgrade that will allow Polestar 2 owners with two engines from their car for a fee.
