Australia’s latest affordable electric vehicle is now available to order with a healthy list of features matched with an appealing price
Orders have officially opened for the highly-anticipated Polestar 2 sedan that has been priced from $59,900 before on-roads in Australia.
Buyers can place orders for the Polestar 2 on the brand’s official website, with deliveries expected to begin in February 2022.
Customers will need to pay $500 to reserve a priority allocation of their chosen Polestar 2, with the fee fully refundable if they decide to pull out.
With a line-up of more affordable grades available alongside more premium, AWD-equipped grades the Polestar 2 will go head to head with the Tesla Model 3 sedan and Hyundai Ioniq 5 midsize SUV in Australia.
Polestar, a sibling company of the Swedish Volvo brand, has been offering test drives of its new sedan to customers in Australia at a series of temporary locations.
The pop-up test drive events began in Sydney from mid-November and will soon make an appearance in Melbourne and the Gold Coast in December 2021 and Brisbane in February 2022.
Permanent test drive locations will be established in 2022.
The Polestar 2 sedan is offered in a choice of three drivetrain options that can be combined with three add-on packs that build on the level of luxury, safety and performance available.
Kicking off the range is the Polestar 2 Standard Range Single Motor that features the headline entry price of $59,900 before on-road costs, and arrives equipped with a driving range of 440km (WLTP) and sends 165kW of power and 330Nm of torque to the front wheels.
Next on the ladder is the Polestar 2 Long Range Single Motor that starts at $64,900 before on-road costs and boosts range out to 540km (WLTP), with grunt increased to 170kW/330Nm.
The flagship Long Range Dual Motor grade is priced from $69,900 before on-road costs, sending a huge 300kW/660Nm to all four wheels – though range drops to 480km (WLTP).
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
