2024 Polestar 2: More Range, Performance, and Standard Features, Starts at C$54,950

Polestar has announced pricing for the updated 2024 Polestar 2 in Canada and the US. While the electric sedan comes with more range, increased performance, and increased standard equipment, the Polestar 2 still comes in under the thresholds for the federal and provincial rebates north of the border.

One of the upgrades to all Polestar 2 variants is faster charging capability, now reaching up to 205 kW when plugged into a DC fast charger. Additionally, the Polestar 2 boasts an increased estimated EPA combined range of up to 515 km (320 miles).

The 2024 Polestar 2 also now comes equipped with a comprehensive suite of safety features, including the Blind Spot Information System with steer assist, Cross Traffic Alert with brake support, park assist sensors, 360-degree cameras, and auto-dimming door mirrors.

Polestar has also introduced an all-new motor that produces 299 horsepower, a 68 horsepower increase from its predecessor. For those seeking even more power and performance, Polestar offers the dual motor Polestar 2 with the optional Plus and Performance packs. The Performance Pack includes upgrades such as low-drag Brembo brakes, forged alloy wheels, adjustable dampers, and an increased power output of 455 horsepower, resulting in a 0-100 km/h time of 4.2 seconds.

In terms of pricing, the Long Range single motor Polestar 2 starts at $54,950 in Canada, and $51,300 in the US. The dual motor variant, priced at $62,950 CAD/$$56,700 USD comes with the Pilot Pack as standard equipment, previously a $4,700 CAD ($3,400 USD) option. Furthermore, the Plus Pack, which includes a range-enhancing heat pump, premium sound by Harman Kardon, and various comfort features, is now available at a reduced price of $3,000 CAD.

At this price point the Polestar 2 is eligible for Canada’s iZEV rebate of $5,000, and also provincial rebates of up to $4,000 in British Columbia, and $7,000 in Quebec. The Polestar 2 is not eligible for any tax credit in the US. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in both countries in August 2023.
