Not suitable for Arizona

The AC in this car really sucks, so if you live in a hot climate, you will be disappointed. I have tried to have it serviced but was told there was a 3 week wait for parts and a 3 week wait for a loaner car. So I commute in 110 degree heat. I called Polestar customer support and got NO assistance whatsoever. So at least in Arizona, I would NOT buy this car. And I must say that their customer support sucks as well.

Positives: Acceleration, Trim package with leather, handling all really nice . The car feel like a rocket on air . It is truly a superb driving car. Negatives : compartment space. It is a little spartan with little room to store stuff inside. It takes some getting used to. The iPad has some minor glitches. The two year battery America is nice if you can find a station with working chargers. And once that app is working it is a great bargain to charge there . The dealership was great and charge America customer service is also great .

Reviewers seem confused on whether or not they think the Polestar 2 is beautiful. The ‘truth’ is that it’s one of the most attractive cars on the road today and will turn heads everywhere you go. The styling is unique, but does not scream, “I’m an EV!” I love the discrete badging that causes onlookers to scan the car like they’re admiring a work of art in a gallery. The interior and controls are simple and well thought out, except for the cup holder. Storage isn’t great, but it’s not terrible either. The hatchback, folding seats, and flip-up grocery organizer are as practical as it needs to get for a small car. And although the Polestar 2 is small, it’s certainly not light at ~4700 lbs. Yet it hustles its weight through turns admirably and always feels planted and nimble. Acceleration is forceful but smooth, and available instantly whenever you need it. Coming from a turbo 4 cylinder car will have you thinking you’re in a space ship. One pedal driving is perfectly executed and also adjustable. The ride is comfortable but firm and road/wind noise are not too obtrusive at highway speeds. So far range has been more than comfortable for me and the free Electrify America charging has been consistently easy and fast. My battery consumption averages 25-32 kWh/100 mi which is slightly more efficient than the EPA rating. I also charge at home on a 110V outlet which gives 25-40 miles range overnight. I plan to install a 220V outlet to fully charge the battery overnight. Some minor tech complaints involve the iPhone app disconnecting, or the Android system in the car occasionally loosing LTE connection and needing to be reset. The seat senses your weight and that’s what turns the car on, but I also wish there was a way to leave the car on without being in the seat. As for the quality of the car, I have only a few gripes with some minor rattles in the interior and the overuse of shiny black plastic and scratches easily. Still, this car feels more luxurious and better-built than my BMW, and in a delightfully different Scandinavian style.

Lackluster and unnecessarily complicated

The car drives nice. The app does not work compared to Tesla. The car seat is incomfortable. The electronics in this Electric car clunky at best, and though everything is laid out simple it is unnecessarily complicated. The car the electronics and set up are not intuitive. You can use your phone as a key. But there is no way you can rely on your phone exclusively as a key. Half the time it doesn’t work and you are left not being able to trust or rely on its features . The app is clunky and ineffective and very disappointing. It has Apple CarPlay so that’s a good thing.
