    So, I have only had my Polestar about 6 weeks and I love driving it, hate the fact that it doesn't have good cup holders or Android Auto, but in the last few days I have slightly more worrying issues. The last couple of times when I have returned home after a long journey I have arrived home...
  2. Polestar 2 Problems and Reliability
    Hi, Hopefully some of my fellow Polestar 2 drivers can help me out. My Polestar 2 (2021, LR DM) had regular charging errors where it would brick temporarily (or during the summer holiday in Germany completely because of a drained TCAM battery / 12V). After a long repair at Polestar Netherlands...

    I usually don't use charging timer, the rate is currently flat in Iceland. But now I'm taking part in a research project where the charging behaviour of users is monitored in different scenarios. One of the scenarios is a lowered price during a particular time of day, so I thougt I'd try the...

    Today is the 2nd time I've been confronted by a Tesla driver who believed that Teslas have priority to use Tesla destination chargers. I carry a Tesla to J1772 adapter in the frunk at all times so whenever I see a public Tesla slow charger, I can plug in. Today, I got to a Tesla slow charger and...

    Possibly a dumb question: how do you change the info on the driver display when charging from km/h to kW? many thanks

    I tried to plug in at a public garage after work today and somehow the plug didn’t fit into the charge port. Then I tried another charger and the same thing happened. I pulled into a well-lit public garage to take a look and found one of the pins on the J1772 port is not point straight out… if...

    Here in the Bay Area, electricity prices are so high ($0.33-0.40/kWh for baseline usage in the summer) that I'm constantly trying to avail myself of free public charging options whenever possible. My commute is short, so I'm able to get by charging 1-2 x/week exclusively outside the home. I do...

    Hi all, Nights drawing in, and this is the first time charging at home in the dark! I have noticed that the roof Polestar logo and the ambient lighting on the dash and centre console is on. Is this normal? Never noticed before as either charged on a journey or topped up in the evening when...

    I did my second ever dcfc at an EA station today (the first was a 5 minute test to see how it worked). It was a 28 minute session that delivered 42kWh and my soc was 78% at completion. It was around 90 degrees at the time that I drove off. For the entire 20 minute trip home my fans were spinning...

    Hi all, Just did a small test to measure the efficiency of my home charging set-up. I use the 16 Amps 'camper' cable which I ordered with the car, and an MID-certified kWh counter individual to the camper cable socket. Here are the readings: Most losses should emerge in the current limiter...

    It looks like my charging schedule shifted relative to clock-time after we went into daylight saving time. It was 00:00 to 15:00, but after the DST change it’s now 01:00 to 16:00. Since my electric company sticks with clock time, it now has an hour overlap with when electricity costs more...

    So this is my first EV, and while I LOVE my 2, the setting the amp thing frustrates me. Do you need to set the amps in all EV's when level 2 charging? Polestar recommends between 20 & 38 amps for my 2, but that is completely contingent on where I am charging. I recently had an experience where...

    On June 30th new UK regs are coming in for home charge points. These include some sensible balancing functions, to help even-out the draw on the grid, and also a 10 minute ‘random’ delay. ie, plug your EV in to change, and it doesn’t start for 10 minutes. Smart charge point regulations...

    Hi everyone! I've had my Polestar 2 for three months now and do all my charging at an Electrify America station right around the corner from me. I have a couple road trips on the docket the next couple months and will likely need to use a Tesla charger at the hotel. Will the Lectron do the trick...

    If I let my car get below 66%, I will get a message that says that I "now have enough charge to reach my destination" when the charge exceeds 66%. The curious thing is that I don't have a destination set and that I don't have any destinations that I drive to that require 66% of the battery. My...

    Hi all, I've been a lurker since I placed my order. After a relatively short wait time in today's car-buying standard, I am going to take delivery of my P*2 next Monday. I will go into the overall ordering process/experience below my questions, hopefully, to give someone who is thinking about...

    Have these always been in the manual or is it a sign of things to come soon (focus on the "Blue")? Sources: Charging status in the car's charging input socket (polestar.com) Charging status in the car's driver display (polestar.com)

    Anyone know of any issues with Polestar2 ans charging when using a tethered charger rather than it’s own cables. I’m in Norfolk and have used various chargers without issue, but issue a Tesla supplied charger (correct connection) that has its own cable will not lock and therefore charge. There...
