It has one 231-hp motor but the same 78-kWh battery pack as the existing dual-motor car.

The interior is pretty much the same, with even the new cheap model getting an 11-inch touchscreen running Google's Android Automotive OS.

There are sweet new embossed textile seats, though.

Polestar also introduced a cheaper dual-motor version of the 2, which comes with fewer standard features.
