Swedish-Chinese carmaker Polestar, owned by Volvo Car and Geely, has finally decided to share pricing information and other important details about the affordable Polestar 2 front-wheel drive single-engine electric vehicle.
It is reported that the price of the 2022 "entry-level" electric vehicle will start at $ 45,900 excluding subsidies. That's $ 14,000 below the price of the original twin-engine version. If the buyer is located in the United States, then taking into account subsidies, the cost may fall to a relatively low $ 34,900. This is impressive, especially considering that the model offers the largest range in its category at 426 km (EPA).
By comparison, the 2022 model of the Polestar 2 twin-engined all-wheel drive is slated to sell for $ 49,900 and provides a range of 400 km. Yes, that's right - the entry-level model offers 44% less power and about 6% more range at a $ 4,000 “discount”.
The catch, as you might guess, is that the customer will be prompted to add various "packages" to get additional convenience. For example, the heat pump promised back in the spring became part of the $ 4,000 Plus Pack. It uses the heat from the transmission to heat the passenger compartment, conserves battery power, and extends the range.
The Plus Pack also includes a panoramic glass roof, premium interior (with Harman Kardon sound system), and so on. The $ 3,200 Pilot Pack adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and a 360-degree camera.
Delivery of the single-engine Polestar 2 is expected by the end of 2021, with updated twin-engine configurations due in October.
