POLESTAR, the all-electric upmarket brand owned by Volvo will start from £39,900 when two new versions arrive in the UK from September.

They will join the existing long range dual motor Polestar 2 saloon that costs an extra £6,000 and provides up to 298 miles range.

The new models will start with a standard range, 165bhp single motor model, offering up to 273 miles and 0 to 60mph in 7.0 seconds. For an extra £3,000 there will be a 228bhp long range version, with up to 335 miles and also using a single motor power source.

The current top of the range 402bhp car will hit 60mph in 4.5 seconds and, like every Polestar is ordered exclusively online at Polestar.com.

Potential customers will be able to see and test drive the new versions of Polestar 2 in person from September.

Exterior and interior design is largely indistinguishable between variants, says Polestar. Standard kit includes 19-inch wheels, signature LED light designs front and rear, and Polestar's signature frameless mirrors.

Like the WeaveTech vegan upholstery introduced in 2020, the new standard embossed textile upholstery is a vegan material and is available in two colour executions, matched to new 3D-etched décor panels.

Other standard features include high performance audio with eight speakers, front- and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera.

Connectivity and digital integration also continue as Polestar 2 hallmarks. The Android Automotive OS-powered infotainment system with its 11-inch centre display and 12.3-inch driver display is featured as standard on all models.

A Performance Pack, with adjustable suspension, 20in alloy wheels and performance brakes, remains exclusive to the dual-motor 2 for £5,000, but the new model can be upgraded with the £4,000 Plus Pack, which brings a sunroof and more interior kit, and the £3,000 Pilot Pack, which expands the suite of driver aids.
