About the Polestar 1 & 2

Volvo has a reputation as a reliable and desirable car brand in the UK and beyond. Polestar has been a performance partner of Volvo for several years and, since 2017, became officially owned by Volvo Cars. Polestar have developed a range of electric performance vehicles known as the Polestar 1 and 2.

Polestar 1

The Polestar 1 is a limited-production run performance car from Volvo’s partnership that impresses drivers with a range of modern features. This includes clever technology (such as carbon fibre body work, torque vectoring motors, and active dampers to name a few) and produces 601bhp at 6,000rpm (combined).

The is the first model is a plug-in hybrid with three electric motors, two of which power the rear wheels and a petrol engine driving the front wheels. Combined, they generate 600 hp and a torque of 1000 Nm. In pure electric mode, you can be silently transported up to 80 miles on a single charge. It’s being marketed as a 2+2 and only 1,500 will be hand-built over 3 years.

The Polestar is a balance of exciting aesthetics and performance, which has helped it secure a strong reputation amongst UK drivers. As a specialist insurance broker, we can arrange comprehensive Polestar 1 insurance policies at a competitive price.

Polestar 2

After the success of the Polestar 1, Volvo’s performance partner developed a second production model known as the Polestar 2. A market rival to Tesla’s Model 3, the Polestar 2 has become a popular, pure EV amongst Volvo fans, which is known for its engaging electric driving. This car entered the market in 2020, where it was first shown at the 2019 Geneva motor show and, subsequently, at Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Polestar 2 sits on the same platform used by XC40 and has two electric motors, mounted across both axles for four-wheel drive, and a 27-module, 78kWh battery pack integrated into the floor. It’s a pure EV with 402bhp and has a claimed range of 300 miles, hitting 0-62 in 4.7 secs in its five-door, fastback design.

In the UK, models will only be sold online and are priced from £49,900 which includes routine servicing and maintenance for three years, plus VAT.
