2022 Polestar 2 Gets More Range, Qualifies for Canadian Provincial Rebates

  • 2022 model to come in two versions with 400 and 426 kilometres of range

  • Lower price means 2022 Polestar 2 qualifies for Canadian provincial rebates in Quebec and BC

  • Customers can order the new Polestar 2 starting today

Polestar is giving its entry-level 2 model an increase in range for the 2022 model year by introducing a Single motor version, which offers a range of 426 kilometres and a more accessible starting price. Priced at nearly $20,000 less than last year’s most affordable Polestar 2, the 2022 Polestar 2 Single motor trim does cut back on performance, however, dropping horsepower to 231 hp. The 408-horsepower, Long Range Dual motor is still available, with 400 kilometres of range.

The 2022 Polestar 2 Single motor version will start at $49 900 in Canada, which means it now qualifies for the two provincial rebates, effectively dropping the base price to $41 900 in Quebec and $46 900 in British Columbia. As for the Long Range Dual motor trim, it starts at $48 900 in Quebec and $53 900 in B.C.

These changes make the Polestar 2 more competitive in its segment and against its main rival, the Tesla Model 3. The Model 3 Standard Range Plus offers more horsepower, but it has the same range and costs about $3,000 more

All versions of the Polestar 2 are equipped with a 78-kWh battery which powers the EV to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.0 seconds and 4.7 seconds for the Single and Dual motor versions respectively.

Charging the Polestar 2 takes about 8 hours with a 220V level 2 charger and 40 hours on a 110V standard electrical outlet. Level 3 fast charging is possible, and takes about 40 minutes to reach 80% of range.

Polestar is already accepting orders trough its website, which is the only way to buy a Polestar. First deliveries of the 2022 models are due in the late Fall of 2021. Customers who prefer a physical experience can visit one of the three Canadian Polestar spaces, in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, where a specialist can help with the online buying process.
