Pricing and specifications for Polestar 2, the Swedish all-electric performance car which goes on sale in Australia in January 2022.

The Polestar 2 electric model range will start from $59,900 for the standard range single electric motor and $64,900 for the long-range single motor.

Both single motor variants fall under the threshold for the $3,000 Electric Vehicle Rebate in New South Wales and Victoria, as well as significant stamp duty savings.

The Polestar 2 Long range dual motor variant will launch at $69,900.

Samantha Johnson, Head of Polestar Australia, comments: “We are delighted to be able to offer Australian customers such a compelling ownership proposition with our first foray into the Australian market. True to the Polestar brand identity, our aim is to offer a premium, all-electric solution at an attainable level for a great proportion of Australian motorists.

“We know that consumers in our market are very receptive to new technology and have a desire for a high-quality product with superb attention to detail and an engaging drive. We are confident that the Polestar brand experience will hit the right note with Australian EV enthusiasts, and we anticipate that the Polestar 2 with its compelling ownership proposition will attract many more Australians to all-electric mobility.”

Constant development also means that new features and system upgrades can be deployed via Over-the-Air updates, without the need to visit a service point.

Polestar will offer a direct-to-consumer online sales model as well as physical retail presence of Polestar Spaces and Destinations in various cities around Australia from early 2022.
