polestar 2 ev reaches 100,000-unit milestone

Swedish carmaker Polestar has reached a key milestone for its signature Polestar 2 model, with 100,000 units manufactured some two and a half years after production started at parent company Volvo’s Taizhou factory in Luqiao, China.

The 100,000th Polestar 2 is destined for a customer in Ireland, one of the latest in Polestar’s 27 global markets. The milestone car will be adorned with special commemorative decals to celebrate the achievement.

“It’s an amazing achievement – especially given we launched the Polestar 2 during the pandemic,” said Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath. “Thank you to the team and all our customers who have joined us on this exciting journey.”

Automotive News Europe reports that the Polestar 2 was the fifth best-selling mid-size premium car in Europe, ahead of the fully-electric BMW i4, and even the regular ICE-powered Audi A5. Its sales volume through the first nine months of the year also places it as the fifth best-selling premium EV this year, putting it ahead of the Mercedes-Benz EQA, and the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.

The Polestar 2 was launched in Singapore last year, making its official debut in the ASEAN region. Two variants are now being offered in the island nation; the Standard Range Single Motor variant offers 170 kW (231 hp) and 330 Nm of torque, with a 69 kWh battery offering up to 470 km of range, while the Long Range Dual Motor variant offering 300 kW (408 hp) and 660 Nm of torque, and 487 km of range from its 78 kWh battery pack.

Polestar says that the model has been continuously updated through over-the-air (OTA) updates, which brought improvements to its real-world performance, including driving range and increased charging speed, alongside new eco climate function and battery preconditioning optimisations. The carmaker adds that even the first Polestar 2 that rolled through the factory gates have been updated to be “as cutting edge as today’s models”.
