Polestar is launching a special limited edition model of the Polestar 2. The Polestar 2 BST Edition 270 includes mechanical as well as design modifications to set it apart from the standard Polestar 2 models.
The powertrain is the same as the Polestar 2 with Performance package, with the two electric motors and 78 kWh battery producing the maximum output of 350 kW and 680 Nm of torque, "paired with improved responsiveness and sportier dynamics," according to the company. The latter is said to be achieved by a 25 millimeter lowered suspension, specially developed two-way dampers from Öhlins, 20 percent stiffer springs and 21-inch rims. The Brembo brakes are the same as the Performance model. There are also Pirelli tires, which Polestar says were developed specifically for the special model.
However, the most visually striking feature, the matt black body striping, is only an option - it is also possible without it. The special model is available in Thunder or Snow paint finishes, with the "Battleship Gray" matt paint finish optional.
As the name suggests, only 270 units will be built exclusively for Europe, North America and China, with only around 35 planned for Germany. "The response to the specially modified Polestar 2 that we unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2021 was great, and that response made it clear to us that we should put such a version into production," says Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
