Why did you choose this car?
Test drove it out of curiosity with no intention to buy. Was blown away by how much better it was than any comparable ICE car.

 

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car?

  • Performance
  • Design
  • Uniqueness (not a Tesla!).

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car?

  • The phone app
  • The purchasing experience
  • The reverse auto-braking.

 

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
You can play Space Invaders while it charges!

 

What car are you interested in next and why?
I’d have another Polestar or wait until Volvo have a pure EV version of something like the V90.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Wallbox Pulsar – not really, it was cheap to install but the app is very basic, it struggles to hold a wi-fi connection and isn’t particularly well-featured. It works, that’s about all there is to say about it.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Avro – until they went bust earlier today. Currently no idea who I’ll be using next as that’s up to Ofgen, it seems.

 

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Have only ever needed to charge on a public charger once. Tried a Pod Point. It was broken. Customer service was just as bad as when I tried to get one installed at home. The clown car of the charging world.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Churchill – no basis to recommend or otherwise as you really only learn that when you need to claim!
