Fuel economy

Electric motors 3.2 miles/kWh
  • Near 300 mile range, confirmed by WLTP testing
  • No official charging times yet
  • Should take between 35-45 minutes though

Polestar says 294 miles of combined driving or 350 miles if you only drive in the city. That’s WLTP approved range now, of course, so there’s no reason to doubt it.

Charging times are TBC but there’s no fast-charging 800v tech like we've seen in the Porsche Taycan here, just your standard 400 volts, so don’t expect anything ground-breaking.

As a rough working estimate engineers said an 80% fill from empty on a 150kW DC charger would take 35-45 minutes, which is pretty average and on par with the Tesla Model 3.
