Production of the Polestar 2 has officially begun in Luqiao, China.

Scheduled for initial delivery into Europe, followed by China and North America, the new electric performance fastback is the first electric vehicle to be produced by the facility.

Despite the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, production still resumes with staff taking precautions
The world is facing enormous upheaval in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Polestar has decided to start production now with a strong focus on the health and safety of the people, after managing to secure the supply chain even under these challenging circumstances.

Owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding and operated by Volvo Cars, the Luqiao plant is an example of how Polestar has leveraged the expertise of its parent companies. Revealed in February 2019, the Polestar 2 is available in ten global markets in Europe, China and North America.

Initially available to reserve with a refundable deposit, final order books in each launch market are now being opened sequentially.

The Polestar 2 delivers 402bhp and 660Nm of pure electric power and 470km of range
The fully electric performance fastback is available for the first year of production with 402bhp and 660Nm, all-wheel drive and a 78kWh battery pack that enables a range of 470km based on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure.

The Polestar 2 is also the world's first car to feature a built-in infotainment system powered by Android to feature Google Maps, Google Assistant and the Google Play Store.

Deliveries to customers are due to begin in mid-2020 on a market-by-market basis, starting with Europe and followed by China and North America.
