Those seeking yet more dynamism and driver engagement in their electric car, however, can now opt for the Performance Pack, which takes the Polestar 2's driving dynamics to the next level. Naturally, a complete suite of driver aids continues to help ensure the dynamic drive is also a safe one.

Comfortable but focused, we want you to feel positively connected to the road, the car alive and communicative, but balanced and predictable. It really is unlike most electric cars. It feels Polestar."
