The Polestar brand has undergone some changes over the last few years. Originally the high-performance arm of Volvo, in 2017, it was reimagined as an all-electric carmaker. Its first vehicle, the Polestar 2, made its debut in the United States for 2021 as a dual-motor high performance model. Just one year out, and there are a few notable changes.
Instead of just one configuration, there are now two. The updated version of the Polestar 2 gets a name change to Polestar 2 Dual Motor with a shuffle to its standard features and a new available heat pump that helps improve range. There’s also a new Polestar 2 Single Motor, with lower pricing, a longer range, and front-wheel drive only from its single motor. Let’s take a closer look at the 2022 Polestar 2 to see if this electric vehicle is the right choice for you.
