With the 2024 model Polestar claims to have made changes that its customers have been asking for. Visually there is not a great deal to differentiate the newcomer – there are new 20-inch forged alloy wheels which are created using patented laser-etching process rather than diamond cutting, and the adoption of the ‘smart zone’ front end that debuted on the Polestar 3 SUV which will launch towards the end of 2023.
Polestar 2, other numbers are available, is based on Volvo underpinnings and technology and built in China by Geeley, the Swedish carmaker’s owner. It sits on Volvo’s SMA XC40 platform while the new Polestar 3 SUV, launched last year, shares the XC90 underpinnings. Sales globally hit 51,500 cars in 2021 with hopes for 80,000 this year and 290,000 around the world by 2025.
