Polestar 2 Deliveries Have Begun In Canada

For some time to come, the Polestar 2 will be a rare sight on our streets but we think it’s got potential

  • The first cars were delivered last Thursday.

  • Pricing starts at $69,900.

  • We’ve reviewed and liked it.

The Polestar 2 was the first conventional non-mainstream EV we drove and we think quite highly of it. The 2, a 5-door raised hatchback-crossover crossover (purposeful) is comfortable, quick, and civilized, and customers are now beginning to take delivery of their units.

2021 Polestar 2 First Drive Review: A Conventional EV

Polestar, a subsidiary of the Volvo Car Group and Geely Holding Group, has three retail spaces in the country, one in each major metropolitan area, namely Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. As Automotive News Canada (subscription required) reminds us, these “shops” do not have inventory and much of the transaction can be done online. At-home test-drives can also be scheduled online.

The Polestar 2 finds itself in the middle of a growing premium-priced ($50,000+) electric vehicle segment that includes the Tesla Model 3 and Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and there are more to come.

Hugues Bissonnette, Country Manager of Polestar Canada, said: “The Polestar 2 places us directly in the center of the burgeoning premium electric vehicle segment and is the car that will propel Polestar toward future growth.” We certainly agree.
