Polestar announced today the launch of a new Performance Pack that will improve the driving dynamics of the electric Polestar 2. It is priced at 6000 euro in Germany and at £5,000 in the UK, with the first deliveries beginning in 2020/

The new Performance Pack includes: 4-piston Brembo front brake setup, adjustable Öhlins dampers and 20-inch forged alloy wheels, complemented by gold seatbelts and valve caps. It may not sound like much, but the company promised it will “deliver an even more engaging and unique Polestar experience.”

Polestar 2 delivers a total of 300 kW and 660 Nm of torque and uses a 78 kWh battery. Polestar promises it will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. Joakim Rydholm, who is responsible for chassis development at Polestar, says Polestar 2 is a car that wants to be driven. “We spent a lot of time obsessing over the finest details of the Performance Pack chassis set-up to find the car’s sweet spot; we call it the “Golden Ride”. 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.”
