Swedish electric performance marque Polestar has revealed a follow up to its 2 BST Edition 270 launched last summer.
The newest special is the 2 BST Edition 230, a car that combines the performance of the previous car with new design details.
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar’s CEO, said the special editions enable the automaker to explore new design details like colors, graphics, and materials in “faster and more creative ways.”
Unique to the 2 BST Edition 230 is the exterior color, known as Green Nebula (a black exterior with a matte black body stripe is offered as an alternative). Inside, the car features MicroSuede on the seats and steering wheel grips, a material that’s partially made using recycled Nubuck leather.
2023 Polestar 2 BST Edition 230
The performance upgrades of the 2 BST Edition 230 are the same as the 2 BST Edition 270. Peak power from a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system registers at 476 hp, and this is combined with a sport-tuned chassis featuring Brembo brakes, 21-inch wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires, Öhlins adjustable dampers, and a 25-millimeter lowered ride height.
Polestar will build a total 230 examples for sale in Europe and North America only. Deliveries start in the third quarter of 2023 and Polestar hasn’t said how many are earmarked for the U.S. Polestar also hasn’t mentioned pricing, but the 2 BST Edition 270 started at about $75,000.
The arrival of the 2 BST Edition 230 marks the end of the 2023 model year for Polestar’s compact hatch. A 2024 Polestar 2 has already been revealed with a round of updates, including some styling tweaks and more power and range.
