Polestar 2 In-Depth Review

From EV-olution.

Everything you want to know about the Polestar 2 electric car in one video; from features, details, specs, options, and prices, to how it drives and handles. If you are considering the Polestar 2 then this video is for you. I was fortunate to have Polestar Canada lend me this car for one week and had a ton of fun driving the car, as well as learning how to make such a complex video. I hope you like it.

*** UPDATE: I was told, by Polestar 2 owners that there actually is a trunk release button on the outside of the car. It is hidden under the edge where the license plate is. Not the most intuitive place to put a button, but it makes sense. I will mention it in my next video. Thanks to those who pointed it out.

You can see a list of details that were in this video, below the links section, and as mentioned in the video you can find out more about the Android Automotive operating system once my second Polestar 2 video is ready.

Air Woofer Technology. A link to the Premium Audio press release can be found here: https://media.polestar.com/us/en/media/pressreleases/500088

Air Woofer Technology:
I received details from Polestar about the “Air Woofer Technology”. It is part of the Harman Kardon Premium Audio 13-speaker sound system which is part of the optional Plus Pack. Many vehicles place the subwoofer under the seats or in the rear/trunk, as that was often the only place it could fit. Without a gas engine up front the Polestar 2 can utilize part of the space for the “Air Woofer Technology”. Similar to a subwoofer this area under the dash was specifically designed with the Harman Kardon sound system, adding additional audio depth and enhancing the overall audio experience.
