It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly three years since the debut of the Polestar 2, the first all-electric model from the Volvo subsidiary. And with the discontinuation of the Polestar 1, the compact car is now the smallest in the brand’s range.

Continuing to pave the way for the battery-powered revolution, the Swedish marque has just announced the specs and features for the upcoming 2024 model of the Polestar 2, with single-motor and dual-motor variants available. With rear-wheel drive, the single-motor version sports a new 82kWh motor capable of a 300-mile range and boasts 299hp (bumped up from 231hp), 361lb.ft of torque (up from 243lb.ft), and a 0 to 60 time of 5.9 seconds.

On the other hand, with a 270-mile range, the dual-motor vehicle bolsters the performance from 408hp to 421hp and 467lb.ft to 546lb.ft of torque, as well as a 0 to 60 time of 4.3 seconds. First featured in the Polestar 3, SmartZone restructure the vehicle’s active safety features with a front-facing camera and mid-range radar. Also now standard are the Driver Awareness features and wireless phone charging.

Despite its improved impact of 5.9 tons, the 2024 Polestar 2 still guarantees better performance overall. Expect to deliver later this year, the vehicle’s price will start at €50,190 (~$54,631).
