The 2025 Polestar 2 electric car has been updated for the third time in two years, with changes including improved driving ranges and new design elements.

The updated model is expected to arrive in Australian showrooms by September 2024.

The latest update includes a new 70kWh battery pack for the Standard Range Single Motor variant in Europe, replacing the previous 69kWh pack.

This change extends the driving range to 520-554km based on European WLTP testing, an increase from 505-546km.

Additionally, the new model supports faster charging, with a 10-80% recharge achievable in 26 minutes at 180kW DC, compared to 34 minutes at 135kW in the previous version.

Design updates feature standard 19-inch alloy wheels with a new look, potentially increasing the maximum WLTP range of Long Range variants by 3-4km.

The optional 20-inch silver Pro wheels are now available in a grey finish.

Polestar has also introduced new exterior colours: 'Vapour' silver and 'Storm' grey, replacing 'Magnesium' and 'Thunder,' respectively.

Inside, buyers can now opt for black nappa leather upholstery in addition to the existing white option.

The Pro pack adds Swedish gold stripes on the seat belts, 20-inch alloys, and gold tire valve caps.

European customers can also select a Climate Pack, which includes heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, heated windscreen washer fluid nozzles, and a heat pump that uses excess battery heat to warm the cabin and reduce electricity consumption.

Polestar's new packs allow customers to choose specific features without needing to purchase the more expensive Pilot, Plus, and Performance packs.

The body-coloured front grille and revamped electric motors from the 2024 update remain unchanged in the 2025 model.

Orders in Australia are expected to open closer to the first deliveries in September, with the current model priced from $67,400 plus on-road costs.
