Polestar isn’t new and has graced special Volvo products for years but was finally tasked with building its own cars in 2017. Shortly after, the creatively named Polestar 1 launched the company’s official efforts and hinted at a stream of new offerings. Realizing its full, battery-electric place, Polestar launched its second machine, the Polestar 2, in 2020. The five-door hatchback is available in single and dual-motor trims, with different battery sizes for varied performance and range. Naturally, the more power and range you want, the higher the cost. This dual-motor, long-range Polestar 2 pushes 408 hp to the wheels from its front and rear axle-mounted motors.

On this episode of Quick Spin, Associate Editor Emmet White hops behind the wheel of the Polestar 2, takes you on a guided tour of the EV, highlights some of its exterior and interior features, and takes you on a live drive review. Joining the show, host Wesley Wren chats with White about his experiences with the Polestar 2, taking a road trip in an electric vehicle, and the Polestar’s place in the market. Closing the show, the two discuss what makes this Polestar 2 special.
