2024 Polestar 2 price and specs revealed, now $4,000 more expensive
The revamped Polestar 2 lineup comes with expanded standard features and significant mechanical upgrades. However, these enhancements come with a price hike across all models.

Polestar has revealed the updated pricing structure for its enhanced Polestar 2 lineup, indicating an increase between $3000 and $4000 across all models. The price adjustments align with substantial upgrades in vehicle mechanics, encompassing longer driving ranges, faster charging times, and the introduction of new electric motors. The latter modification means that two-wheel-drive variants will now transition from front- to rear-wheel drive.

Scheduled local deliveries are set to commence from August.

Notably, the Polestar 2 lineup also sees an extensive boost in standard safety features. Every model will now include blind-spot monitoring and assistance, cross-traffic alert and assistance, reverse autonomous emergency braking, and a surround-view camera as standard offerings. Adaptive cruise control, however, remains an optional extra.

Standard features across all models now include a wireless phone charger and auto-dimming exterior mirrors. Additionally, a new 20-inch forged alloy wheel design has been introduced for the optional Performance Pack, aesthetically aligning the car with the forthcoming Polestar 3.

Visual updates for 2024 are otherwise subtle and include a body-coloured front grille echoing the style of the Polestar 3 SUV. This grille houses a majority of the vehicle's sensors. A new set of 20-inch wheels for the Performance Pack has also been introduced, designed to mirror the 22-inch alloys of the Polestar 3 Performance Pack.
