Polestar 2, from £44,950, polestar.com

Design-focused Swedish car brand Polestar has just unveiled its newest vehicle, an updated version of the classic Polestar 2. Exciting new features include rear-wheel drive (single-motor only), quicker charging, increased driving range of up to 395 miles WLTP, a SmartZone front end previously introduced on the Polestar 3, more driver awareness features and a reduced carbon impact (by 1.1 tonnes) for better sustainability credentials.

‘Typically in the car industry, a facelift introduces superficial visual changes that often destroy the original intention of the car’s design theme,’ said Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath. ‘With the new model year Polestar 2, we rather went below the surface and upgraded substantial tech and mechanical components of the electric drivetrain. This is the best Polestar 2 yet, and with the updated front design with the new SmartZone, the best looking one, too.’
