Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
Polestar is very much still an unknown, I often get asked about the car and when others have driven it, they have been nothing more than impressed.
What car are you interested in next and why?
Polestar 3 or M3 Performance.
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Ohme – it’s a great charger but it doesn’t have the API to be able to communicate with the car. That’s a Polestar issue, not an Ohme one.
What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus Go Faster – it’s a great tariff and offers real value. Great customer care if you use the tweet facility.
What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
BP Pulse – not the greatest.
Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Admiral – by far the cheapest if you use their MultiCar facility.
