Polestar is one of the new disruptors in the EV space. As Volvo's electric-vehicle brand, it aims to combine high-tech features with a modern Swedish look.
With a limited production run and a price tag starting at $155,000, the Polestar 1 is Polestar’s exclusive collector’s item plug-in hybrid. This sporty PHEV has an all-electric driving range of 52 miles and a combined system output of 619 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. The EPA has rated the Polestar 1 for fuel efficiency city/highway with a combined rating of 58 MPGe.

The Polestar 2 is Polestar’s fully-electric vehicle that comes with a large battery pack and an electric motor that powers the front wheels—or two electric motors for buyers who want an all-wheel-drive configuration. According to the EPA, the single-motor 231 horsepower version ($45,900) offers up to 270 miles of range, while the dual-motor 408 horsepower version ($49,900) delivers 249 miles of range.
Find the best charging station for your Polestar 2
For level 1 and level 2 charging, Polestar EVs and PHEVs use the industry-standard SAE J1772 connector in North America. Charging times vary depending on the charging station used.
The Polestar 1 PHEV would benefit most from a fast home charger; however, the Polestar 2 EV supports fast charging up to 150 kilowatts. Polestar claims that through fast charging, the battery can be charged to 80 percent in 40 minutes.
Polestar EV owners and all other electric vehicle drivers can easily utilize the same EV charger.
