Polestar 2 Launch Edition 2020, SnowRacer - EV Owner Review

 

Why did you choose this car?
The looks are amazing! The build quality and driver experience are great! Other cars I have liked but this one I absolutely LOVE! 🙂

 

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

  • The One-Pedal Drive is great!
  • Pixel headlights are amazing!
  • Performance is outstanding!

 

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

  • The slow speed of deleting the smaller issues and bugs
  • There should be a black leather option!
  • The app is far too basic and boring! (even the 10 year old Volvo On Call app feels like a far better solution and that it is nothing but crazy).

 

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?
Random bugs and have been towed twice. But that is actually all OK and compensated by the fantastic drive of it!

 

What are the standout tech features of the car?

  • Google Maps and integration with Google Home is really sweet!
  • The smooth One-Pedal Driving function together with the Pilot Assist is by far the best tech of the whole package!

 

Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.

It has a great ‘Launch control’ feature that is hidden away for all that never give it a try!

  • Stand still on a safe road
  • Use your left foot on the brake pedal and place it on the far left edge of the pedal
  • Inform your passengers to “feel the car preparing” for take-off
  • Push full throttle with your right foot. Feel the car tensioning up the drivetrain all the way to the rubber touching the tarmac.
  • Count down 5,4,3,2,1…BANG! Let your left foot slip off the brake pedal and take off screaming loud! See you later!!!
    😎👍
