Check to see if the back wall of the glove box is actually a panel. If so, the fuse box might be behind.

I have checked that, as you can get the glove box right down with a couple of pushes. there is a compartment under the glove box, but screwed in with Allen keys and it isnt there either lol, it must be some where simple to allow us normal people to change a fuse when required!

Great to know as I plan to hardwire my dashcam in when I get my car back.
Maybe I should turn it round to capture passengers' expressions when I floor it! 😂😂

'Should have guessed the designers would make it easier to get at than in other cars from other manufacturers.

By the way, one helpful chap on the UK Facebook Polestar 2 group has made a video on how he fitted his dashcam:

Well, yes, as an option. But when you get your own, of course, you can get the features you want and pay what you want. Then, in the future, you can upgrade easily as well.

Just sayin '.

I just finished hard wiring my dashcam (Nextbase 312GW) into the fuse box in the passenger side footwell, using the hardwiring kit from my previous car. The hardest part for me was locating a power source that switches off when the car is locked. To my surprise, I discovered I could simply use one of the empty slots for the power source (position 82 in my UK model Polestar 2). I found a ground point using a screw head located behind the glovebox door (detach and swing the door down to reveal the pollen filter and glovebox mounting screws either side). Finally, I note that the camera remains on for several minutes after the car is locked but does eventually power down.

I just finished running the hardwire cable and hiding it. I was a little nervous but fortunately I have already done this in my other car. Hardest part for me was getting past the large square fastener that is found between the door and glovebox where the upper dash plastic seam meets the lower legroom area plastic. I found I couldn't get them to sit flush with each other just wedging the wire between them. A little pulling and the fastener unbuckled and I could easily get the wire out of the way. Rubber backed carpeting is very ridged so I'll need to figure out how to get it out of the way. I'll give position 82 a try.
