Pre-orders for Polestar 2 available in Austria

The Polestar 2 is now being launched in Austria, where pre-orders for the electric model are now being taken at a guide price of €55,900 before the order books are officially opened in October.

The first test drives for customers in Austria will also be possible from mid-2021, according to Polestar, which is still in the process of setting up the service network for the Polestar 2, which will include several Volvo dealerships - similar to the one in Germany. "The details of the Polestar stores are being finalised and plans will be announced in the future," Polestar said.

But in Austria, too, the vehicles are sold exclusively through direct sales via the internet. In Austria, the gross base price is €55,900, while in Germany the vehicle is listed at a starting price of €54,925. As in Germany, there is also the cooperation with the charging provider Plugsurfing in Austria, which provides access to 5,800 charging points in Austria and 200,000 charging points throughout Europe.

The vehicle itself is unchanged: the two electric motors of the currently available variant produce a combined 300 kW, and the 78 kWh battery enables a WLTP range of 480 kilometers. Other variants of the Chinese-built e-sedan - such as a version with just one electric motor and/or a smaller battery - are possible, but not yet concretely announced. In the run-up to the market launch, Polestar had spoken of a base price of around 40,000 euros.trendingtopics.at, polestar.com
