The 2023 Polestar 2 BST edition 270 is the latest addition to Polestar's product line. The new model takes advantage of the company's decades of tuning knowledge to create the most dynamic electric automobile possible. However, to emphasize the exclusivity to those three markets, the moniker signifies that just 270 units will be produced.
Great interest has been shown in our 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed debut of the Polestar 2 with a host of performance upgrades. After hearing the feedback, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath decided to put such a version into production.
Production vehicles differ significantly from regular Polestar 2 models in technical and aesthetic ways. You get a Polestar 2 BST edition 270 electric car with an improved dynamic performance that you can feel when driving. With the help of the two electric motors and the 78 kWh battery, the electric vehicle is able to produce a maximum power of 350 kW (476 hp) and a maximum torque of 680 Nm, in addition to a quicker response time and sharper handling.
Some of the suspension upgrades are a front cross brace, 20 percent stronger springs, and brand new black 21-inch - Alloy wheels inspired by the Polestar 1. In addition, the ride height was lowered by 25 millimeters. For its tires, Polestar opts for a 245/35R21 Pirelli P Zeros, which were made with this model in mind. The standard Brembo brakes with four pistons are still there.
The Polestar 2 BST edition 270 limited edition model comes in Thunder or Snow exterior paint and a black or charcoal WeaveTech interior. Completely painted bumpers and side skirts accentuate the vehicle's size. It is possible to order the vehicle with a matte Battleship Gray paint job and a matte black body stripe. Gloss black paint coats the exterior mirrors. Details such as the brake calipers, dampers, valve caps, and seat belts that are emblematic of Swedish design have been kept in gold.
