ALL-ELECTRIC brand Polestar is expanding its tuning-based Polestar Engineered product offering with the introduction of the Polestar 2 BST edition 270.
The new version leverages decades of tuning experience from the former performance arm of Volvo to deliver what Polestar claims is its most dynamic electric driver's car yet.
Only 270 units will be built, exclusively for Europe, North America and China and the car is based on the model seen at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2021.
The car includes is priced from £68,900 and mechanical modifications along with key design enhancements to elevate itself above standard Polestar 2 models.
The two electric motors and 78 kWh battery have been enhanced for a maximum power output of 350 kW (476 hp) and 680 Nm of torque, along with heightened responsiveness to go with the sportier dynamics resulting in a 0 to 60mph acceleration time of 4.2 seconds.
Chassis modifications include ride height lowered by 25 mm, specially developed and unique Öhlins two-way adjustable dampers with auxiliary adjustment chambers mounted under the bonnet, a front strut bar, 20 per cent stiffer springs and unique new matte black 21-inch alloy wheels that are inspired by those of Polestar 1.
The limited-edition model is available in either Thunder or Snow exterior colours with a Charcoal WeaveTech interior.
The body features fully-painted bumpers and side skirts. A matte black body stripe is available as an option, as well as a full-body Battleship Gray satin wrap. The side mirrors are finished in glossy black.
Deliveries are expected from the fourth quarter of 2022.
