Polestar has begun the rollout of a major over-the-air update for the Polestar 2.

The latest update includes a new in-car Range Assistant app that is geared to assist drivers, especially those new to the world of electric vehicles, to improve efficiency and range confidence. Included in the app is a new Eco Climate mode that enhances efficiency by allowing the driver to reduce demand on the battery from the climate system as desired.

Further enhancements have been implemented for the battery preconditioning that Polestar introduced earlier in 2021 - when plugged in, the battery is automatically preconditioned according to scheduled climate timers to support optimal temperature in the battery according to the driver's planned departure timing.

Optimising battery temperature also plays a large role in fast charging efficiency. With the latest update, the Polestar 2 will now precondition its battery along the route when a public fast charging station is programmed as a destination or waypoint for the fastest possible charge.
