The Polestar 2 is one of the safest electric vehicles ever tested by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), achieving a five star rating.

Developed in the Volvo Safety Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden, the car's crashworthiness was naturally a top priority.

Safety in the Polestar 2 is ensured with eight airbags including the only inner-side airbags currently fitted to a premium EV that has been tested by Euro NCAP
Safety equipment is of the highest order, ranging from eight airbags including the only inner-side airbags currently fitted to a premium EV that has been tested by Euro NCAP, to the Front Lower Load Path and Severe Partial Offset Collision Block that are designed to mitigate impact on the battery pack and passenger compartment alike.

High-tech safety systems aim to ensure that safety extends beyond structural integrity and occupant protection, including vehicle, cyclist and pedestrian detection support, as well as lane and roadside departure warning and mitigation systems.

The highly advanced Pilot Assist, a driver assistance system, uses a radar and a camera to assist with acceleration, braking and steering at speeds of up to 140km/h.
