Polestar currently has eight service centers including Austin, Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area (Corte Madera and San Jose). If you’re within that 150-mile range of one of those cities, you’re set. But that leaves most of the country uncovered and in need of this service. That will change too as the company plans for a total of 35 “Polestar Spaces” by the end of 2022.
“It would be possible for a traditional automaker to do this for sure, but limitations would be similar, perhaps more limited by parts,” Polestar says.
The Polestar 1 coupe came out in 2019 featuring a 2.0-liter twincharged four-pot at the front with two electric motors on the rear axle making a total 600 horsepower and 737 lb-ft. In contrast, the tall sedan Polestar 2 comes with a two-motor all-wheel-drive system cranking out 408 hp and 487 lb-ft, along with 233 miles of range. A new, less-expensive model was just announced with one motor making 231 hp and boasting a range of 260 miles.
