Polestar Drops Another Quicker, Sharper BST Limited Edition

Quickest Polestar 2 gets new looks

  • Just 230 BST Edition 230s in green or black

  • Polestar 2 BST Edition gets more power, special chassis

Polestar has another special edition Polestar 2. The BST Edition 230 has a smaller number than the last quick Polestar, but just as much power from its electric motors. This one gets some cool new graphics and a fresh coat of paint.

The first performance special Polestar 2 was called the BST Edition 270. It made 476 hp from its twin motors and 502 lb-ft of torque. The name came from the production run of 270, not the power output.

So you can safely assume Polestar is making even fewer BST Edition 230s. Just 230 of them for Europe and North America, with 60 coming to this side of the pond.

The 230 gets all of the same chassis changes as the 270, including a lower ride height and stiffer springs. Plus manually adjustable remote reservoir Ohlins dampers tuned specifically for the BST. The BST gets special wheels with performance tires as well.

Polestar made the 270 in only Thunder or Snow. Silver or white. Or you could get a gray satin wrap.

This time around, you can get green Nebula paint. It’s the first time Polestar has used this colour on any model. The interior has MicroSuede textile seats and steering wheel inserts. There is also recycled Nubuck. The effect creates a unique Polestar 2. Company CEO Thomas Ingenlath says “Limited drops like the BST edition 230 allow us to explore colors, graphics and materials in faster and more creative ways.”

The 2023 Polestar 2 BST Edition 230 is available to order now and is first come, first served. Deliveries are set to start in Q3.
