The state of the art changes much faster in the EV world than with conventional propulsion, which is exemplified by the Polestar 2. With its front-mounted motor, the 2023 model is EPA rated to cover 270 miles of distance per charge, which isn’t bad at all. In addition, the Polestar 2’s exterior and interior design is an exercise in high style, while the infotainment system and performance don’t disappoint. That said, the 2024 Polestar 2 is getting a larger battery pack, more efficient motors, a more rearward power bias for dual-motor cars, and the single-motor models are now rear-mounted, making the car rear-wheel drive. According to Polestar, this will boost the longest-range variant of the Polestar 2 to 320 miles for single-motor models and bumps dual-motor range to 276 miles, beyond what the 2023 model’s lighter, single-motor version could do.
