The refreshingly sleek looks of the Polestar don’t scream EV as is the case for the typical fugly EV offerings; they don’t scream Polestar, either — with only a minimalist logo on the grille and the trunk providing a brand clue. The no-nonsense, sleek appearance is no surprise because Polestar is owned by Volvo, who pretty much invented this look. At first glance, the Polestar 2 EV looks like a 4-door sedan, but when it’s time to load groceries or golf clubs, it becomes a hatchback. Buyers can choose either the longer-range (270 miles), one motor front-wheel drive powertrain, or an all-wheel drive model powered by two motors for 249 miles of range. Interior options are either an attractive charcoal embossed textile or leather with reconstructed wood. A tablet controls the navigation and audio system as well as all the vehicle settings, which can also be controlled via a phone app. Several days of driving reveal this to be a well-mannered car capable of brisk performance, especially in Sport Mode. Those seeking an EV for in-town use would do well to consider this unique drive; Polestar.com.
