Anyone getting one shortly?

Post by cr12330 »

Hi, seems like a nice vehicle would love to test drive one day :) Everyone seems to compare it to the Model 3 Tesla.

I've put in a $500 expression of interest for one, but I'm also under contract for an XC40 Recharge. Not quite decided on which one I prefer at this stage...

Hi there - had a brief 1hr look around and test-drive of one in December - wrote it up as a 'first impressions' article for TheDriven here:
https://thedriven.io/2021/12/22/polesta ... pressions/
(BTW: ignore the headline saying the 2WD is rear-wheel drive - in two-wheel drive form it is front-wheel drive. The editors made that blunder, not me!)

Am getting one for an extended test-drive sometime early 2022. Will write a more comprehensive report then.

Cheers

Thanks Bryce for the run down. This is on the short list if we have to replace our Ioniq.

I do and don't like the pack options keeps them simple but things you may not want necessitate choosing the whole pack. I don't under stand why Blind spot monitoring is an option in a pack that I dont really want anything else and I would want a heat pump but not necessarily the panoramic roof.

Thanks.

And another "froot" supporter, too! I do hate the way the term "frunk" is creeping into Australian usage, since it's very obviously based on the ultra-American term "trunk".

I drove the AWD dual motor version with performance pack a couple of weeks ago on the Gold Coast and I'm sold. I've put a reservation in so will wait and see how this lottery plays out!

I'm actually totally happy with my 2020 Ioniq but I want to be able to pull a camper trailer and the Ioniq isn't rated for towing here. The P2 can tow 1500kg.

I have my order confirmed. Long range single motor with Plus and Pilot packs. It's a preconfigured model so should be here in 8 weeks, though I don't have an actual confirmed delivery date yet.

I am in Perth, I signed up for one, supposedly getting it sometime towards end of March. If anyone else is on this forum who is in Perth and buying a Polestar please let me know as good to swap notes when we eventually get to drive it.

Mine is due first week of May but the date has already slipped a couple of weeks so we'll see.

There are a few Perthites(?) on https://www.polestar-forum.com/ (and lots of chatter in https://www.polestar-forum.com/threads/ ... date.4917/)

Same spot as my Ioniq and there is only one charger I can think of where I need to park on the white line in order to plug in.
