Polestar Car Leasing

Polestar is a relatively new independent Swedish car brand that focuses on premium electric vehicles. It was established in 2017 by Volvo – and shares many design features, concepts and technologies with its parent company. Currently, their all-electric Polestar 2 hatchback is available to lease, offering excellent standard equipment and up to a 273-mile range.

About Polestar

Polestar is a Volvo-derived Swedish brand specialising in charismatically designed sporting electric cars. Every premium manufacturer makes an EV these days of course, but some of them feel like battery-powered versions of existing models. If you’re keen to match the switch to electric, there's quite an appeal in a more clean sheet approach; think Tesla but with a much more European feel. And even higher quality too.

That’s certainly what Polestar has been able to deliver. The company’s first product was the Polestar 1, a powerful luxury saloon that was a plug-in hybrid and came with a hefty £140,000 price tag and was only produced in very limited numbers.

The brand’s future though, for the time being anyway, rests with its volume product, the Polestar 2, a full-EV priced accessibly at around £50,000 to buy and aimed perhaps most directly at sportier versions of the Tesla Model 3. The Polestar 2 is based on the same CMA platform used by a Volvo XC40 – with a whole host of modifications to make the chassis even safer and appropriate for the needs of a heavier full-EV.

The official WLTP-rated driving range is 311 miles, but Polestar's quoted combined driving figure is 294 mikes - or 350 miles if you're driving exclusively in city traffic. As for charging times for the 78kWh battery, it’ll take around 10 hours to fully charge from a garage wall box. If you're out and about and find a 150kW DC public charger, you'd be looking at around 35-45 minutes to get an 80% fill from empty.

Those range figures assume that you’ll be able to resist the temptation to drive this car hard; that might be difficult. There’s a dual-motor AWD drivetrain with 408bhp and 660Nm of torque - more than many high-performance sports cars. The 62mph sprint occupies just 4.7s and you'll be flat out at 140mph. 

So, the Polestar 2 suggests that this Swedish brand is serious about the EV market. And if you’re looking for a sporting executive EV, we think you’ll seriously want to try this one.

The Polestar Range

Every premium manufacturer makes an EV these days of course, but some of them feel like battery-powered versions of existing models. If you’re keen to match the switch to electric, there's quite an appeal in a more clean sheet approach; think Tesla but with a much more European feel. And even higher quality too.

That’s certainly what Polestar has been able to deliver. The company’s first product was the Polestar 1, a powerful luxury saloon that was a plug-in hybrid and came with a hefty £140,000 price tag and was only produced in very limited numbers.

The brand’s future though, for the time being anyway, rests with its volume product, the Polestar 2, a full-EV priced accessibly at around £50,000 to buy and aimed perhaps most directly at sportier versions of the Tesla Model 3. The Polestar 2 is based on the same CMA platform used by a Volvo XC40 – with a whole host of modifications to make the chassis even safer and appropriate for the needs of a heavier full-EV.

The Polestar 2

The Polestar 2 is an all-electric 5-door hatchback, with seating for 5, which rivals zero-emissions models such as the Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 and conventional cars such as the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

It's a premium option, but its price is comparable with the Tesla Model 3 and the distinctive and high-specification Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5. So if you're shopping for a luxury electric car, you'll probably find that it falls into your budget. 

The Polestar 2 does a lot to justify its price, too. The entry-level model, which has a single 224hp electric motor driving the front wheels, can accelerate from 0-62mph in a swift 7.4 seconds. More importantly, its 64kWh battery pack grants it a range of 273 miles on the claimed WLTP test cycle. 

Go for a long-range 78kWh single-motor model, and the range jumps to 335 miles on the WLTP test cycle. There's a more powerful all-wheel-drive dual-motor Polestar 2 as well, for those who want serious performance. It packs a combined 408hp and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds, while its 78kWh battery permits a WLTP range of 298 miles.

In terms of suitability for family use, the Polestar 2 offers a good amount of interior space and split-folding 60/40 rear seats. These, coupled with the hatchback layout of the Polestar, should make it easy to load more oversized items. With the rear seats in place, 405 litres of storage space is on offer, which rises to 1095 with the rear seats dropped. There's also a small 35-litre storage compartment in the nose of the Polestar 2, which is ideal for storing the charging cables.

Future Polestar Vehicles

Polestar is a relatively new company, but it is already expanding its range of cars. At the moment, its line-up consists of the Polestar 1 and Polestar 2, but in 2022, the new Polestar 3 is set to launch. It will be a large all-electric performance SUV, aimed at competitors such as the Mercedes-Benz EQC and Porsche Cayenne. It will share its electric technology and platform with the upcoming all-electric Volvo XC90.

In 2023, the brand is also set to launch the Polestar 4. It is expected to be another all-electric SUV with coupe-like styling and more accessible pricing. The 4 is expected to be a taller and more spacious version of the already-offered Polestar 2 and is likely to be pitched against alternatives such as the Porsche Macan and Range Rover Velar

Further down the line, you can expect to see a model called the Polestar 5. It will be the production version of the Polestar Precept concept and will take the form of a sleek upmarket saloon designed to compete with the long-standing Tesla Model S, the new Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan.

Polestar Jargon-Busting

Lid-In-Lid

The Polestar 2 has a foldable lid-in-lid system in the boot, allowing you to secure shopping and other loose items. It also means that items in the boot can be hidden from view, increasing security.

Orrefors

This is a Swedish crystal brand that provides the elegant crystal drive selector knob in the upmarket Polestar 1. You'll also find other Orrefors products in co-owner Volvo's cars, too.

Park Assist, Sides

Opt for the Pilot Pack in a Polestar 2, and you'll get a feature called Park Assist, Sides. This adds a side-scanning feature to the Polestar's front and rear parking sensor system, providing improved guidance in tighter spaces.

Performance Pack

A suite of high-performance features that can be added to dual-motor models of the Polestar 2. It adds powerful Brembo brakes, Ohlins dual-flow valve dampers, 20-inch forged aluminium wheels, special golden seatbelts and some minor cosmetic upgrades. It's ideal if you're intent on making your Polestar a bit more exciting and evocative to drive.

Pilot Assist

An advanced driver assistance feature that helps keep the Polestar automatically centred in your lane of choice. It also works in conjunction with the adaptive cruise system, which maintains your desired speed and a set safe distance from the car in front, all of which makes the Polestar less tiring to drive on longer trips.

Pilot Pack

The Pilot Pack is a safety- and convenience-oriented upgrade that adds a host of advanced features, including Pixel LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, Pilot Assist, LED front fog lights with a cornering function, a 360-degree parking camera, automatically dimming exterior mirrors and the Park Assist, Sides feature.

Pixel LED

Polestar's advanced Pixel LED headlights automatically dip in areas where there are vehicles and bicycles, which reduces glare for preceding traffic while providing you with the maximum amount of visibility.

Plus Pack

If you want more luxurious touches and equipment in your Polestar 2, the Plus Pack is worth considering. It adds an upmarket Harman Kardon sound system, a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats, a power-saving heat pump, upgraded interior trim and illumination, a panoramic roof, wireless smartphone charging and more.

Polestar Connect

This is a system that provides quick access to the car, comfort and assistance features, either via the Polestar app or the SOS and Connect buttons in the car. If you experience a puncture, for example, roadside assistance can be called for using the Connect button.

Polestar Digital Key

If you install the Polestar app on your mobile phone, you can connect it to the car and then have the car automatically unlock when you touch the door handle. A conventional key is also included, however, so you don't need to rely on your phone.

Polestar spaces

Polestar doesn't have conventional showrooms. Instead, it offers Polestar spaces – of which there are only a few – that allow you to have a look at the cars in person. Polestar says that its unique retail environments are designed to allow you to take in the cars at your own pace, with no pressure.

WeaveTech

This is a Vegan water-based PVC material that is available in Polestars. It's reputed to be strong and durable, and is an appealing and sustainable alternative to animal-sourced leather.
