Polestar announces prices for 2023 Polestar 2, along with many improvements

Polestar has announced pricing for the 2023 Polestar 2, which will start at less than $50,000 before any federal tax rebates or incentives. The Swedish automaker has also included several new design and efficiency improvements in the 2023 model year, which will make the EV more competitive with other notable cars in the segment thanks to its improved range.

The 2023 Polestar 2 Single Motor configuration will start at just $48,400, or $40,900 when the $7,500 federal tax credit is included with the vehicle. A competitive price point for an all-electric sedan, Polestar will undercut both Tesla’s All-Wheel-Drive trim levels for the Model 3, which are $55,990 for the long-range configuration and $62,990 for the Performance package.

Polestar’s software improvements have led the company to expect the car’s twin-engine configurations to increase their range by eleven miles. This will bring the EPA’s estimated range for the 2023 Polestar 2 to 260 miles per charge. Polestar has also included a number of new design features and updates aimed at improving efficiency and range ratings, most notably the inclusion of a heat pump in the Plus Pack.

The mechanical heat pump is designed to deliver range improvements in a wider range of temperatures and climates, which may affect the performance of electric vehicles. Cold weather climates are not friendly to all electric powertrains because they require more energy to heat up the battery cells, which keeps them out of driving range. Additionally, climate control features can reduce efficiency and range. The heat pump helps combat range loss by using already heated air in the cabin, among many other mechanical functions that increase the vehicle’s overall efficiency. Tesla was among the first electric vehicle manufacturers to use a heat pump in early construction of the Model Y. The company then translated the installed heat pump system into the Model 3.

Polestar will continue to roll out Over-the-Air updates to upgrade existing Polestar 2 heat pump vehicles at no additional cost to owners.

Polestar 2 will have optional “packs” that are optional extras for owners. The Plus, Pilot Pack, and Performance Pack all provide owners with additional features that can improve the ownership experience. The Plus Pack now includes an advanced cabin air filter that helps improve the air quality inside the vehicle. A new air quality sensor and application will allow drivers to see the breakdown of air circulating outside the vehicle, including pollen species. The Plus package adds $4,200 to the car’s price.

The Pilot Pack is comparable to Tesla’s Autopilot and includes Blind Spot Assist, Cross Traffic Alerts, Rear Collision Warnings with Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pilot Assist, 360° Cameras, Auto Dimming Door Mirrors, Park Assist, and LED Fog Lights with turns jobs. It costs $3,400 for this package.

The 2023 Polestar 2 Performance Package will provide an additional 68 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque to the vehicle through a software upgrade. It’s only available on vehicle’s Dual-Motor configurations, but the software will be able to be purchased as a separate software upgrade – for both current and future dual-motor vehicles, with and without the Performance Package. Polestar plans to release more information about add-ons this year.

Deliveries of the 2023 Polestar 2 will begin in September in a single engine configuration, priced at $48,400. The 2023 Long Range Dual Motor configuration for the Polestar 2 will start at $51,900, with both vehicles eligible for the $7,500 Federal EV Credit Initiative.
