Do Polestar is ready to reveal its limited edition updated version Polestar 2 BST Edition 270?
The Swedish-Chinese automaker and has teased what could be the new Polestar 2 BST Edition 270 on Twitter ahead of its reveal on March 21.
A short video posted on Twitter by Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath briefly shows the car’s front and side profiles.
There are gold-painted brake calipers, as well as large black alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires. All these features are from the Polestar 2 BST Edition 270.
The company could recreate the BST Edition 270 to align it with the latest update the Polestar 2 received.
Polestar first revealed the facelifted Polestar 2 BST Edition 270 in June 2022 and only 270 examples were made, none of which came to Australia as they were built exclusively for Europe, North America and China.
Each model features a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup that produces a total system output of 350kW of power and 680Nm of torque.
That’s the same power and torque as the current Polestar 2 Long Range model after it was upgraded via a $1600 software update.
Polestar claims the BST 270 Edition handles better thanks to 25mm lower suspension, 20 percent stiffer shock absorbers and front strut bars.
The car is also equipped with Öhlins two-way adjustable dampers, which have additional adjustment space under the bonnet.
As recently reported, Polestar detailed several changes for the rival Tesla Model 3 including the single motor variant switching from front-wheel drive (FWD) to rear-wheel drive (RWD), among other changes.
Australian customers will be able to order the 2024 Polestar 2 in the second quarter of 2023 via the Polestar Australia website. The first shipment is expected in the third quarter of this year.
The 2024 model year update to the Polestar 2 follows almost identical changes to the Volvo XC40 and C40 Recharge electric crossovers, which use the same CMA architecture and are made in the same Chinese factory.
For now we’ll have to wait and see what Polestar has in store for this potential updated version of the Polestar 2 BST Edition 270.
