Production of the Polestar 2 has officially begun in Luqiao, China.
The new electric fastback is the first EV to be produced by the Luqiao facility. The car has all-wheel-drive and will be available for the first year with 402bhp and 660Nm of torque.
The Polestar 2’s 78kWh battery pack enables a range of 470km based on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
“Being able to produce in Luqiao means we are able to bring Polestar 2 to market with high build and quality standards right from the beginning,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
Polestar 2 is also the world’s first car to feature a built-in infotainment system powered by Android. The new system will feature Google Assistant, Google Maps and the Google Play Store.
Polestar 2 was revealed in February 2019. The model is now available in Europe, China and North America.
Initially available to reserve with a refundable deposit, final order books in each launch market are now being opened sequentially.
Deliveries to customers are due to begin in the summer of 2020 on a market-by-market basis. They will begin in Europe and be followed by China and North America.
