Polestar 2 gets another range boost and design updates

Polestar has announced fresh updates for its 2025 model year of the Polestar 2.

The brand’s first pure EV underwent a major upgrade in 2023 to bring a cleaner exterior design and significant technical upgrades and is now being further refreshed. Its specification structure is also being changed to bring it in line with the new Polestar 3.

Tweaks to the battery mean that that long range single motor version of the Polestar 2 can now cover up to 409 miles on a single charge – a three-mile improvement. The standard range single motor model receives an upgraded 70kWh CATL battery with increased range of up to 344 miles.

Externally, the Polestar 2 receives two new exterior colour options. Vapour, a contemporary colour with a light metallic effect, replaces Magnesium as the standard colour. Storm, a dark aluminium colour first seen on the Polestar 4, is now added to the Polestar 2 palette, replacing Thunder. Further exterior design updates also include a new 19-inch Aero alloy wheel with aero inserts and a new 20-inch Pro graphite alloy wheel, available with the Pro Pack.

Inside the new Polestar 2 gains animal welfare-secured Charcoal Nappa leather upholstery from Bridge of Weir. The Pro Pack also brings a new seatbelt design; black with a Swedish Gold stripe running its entire length.

From the 2025 model year, the Polestar 2 pack structure is aligned with the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 while more single options are available, offering customers the freedom to personalise their Polestar 2 more than ever before.

Climate Pack includes heat pump, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel and heating for the washer fluid nozzles. Pro Pack includes 20-inch alloy wheels and Swedish Gold detailing applied to the seatbelt and tyre valve caps. The Pilot Pack, Plus Pack and Performance Packs make up the remaining pack structure.
