Interesting they have different wheels in the UK for 20” nonPP

here it’s Michelin touring A/S tires for the 20” noPP. But the same Primacy4 for 19”

3 phase cable? I don't that was what was delivered with the car.

IGNORE THIS - I got it wrong!

There's this as well:-


Pages and pages of stuff including presently nonexistent features such as:-

Personalised Lighting

Polestar 2 allows its users to adjust and play with the colour balance of light inside the vehicle. The standard colour is 5,000 Kelvins – intentionally the colour of Polaris, from which Polestar derives its name. This interior light colour temperature was chosen to compliment the Polestar 2’s minimalistic, simple, modern and elegant design theme. However, Polestar 2 allows individual users to change the colour temperature to their liking. Upon doing so, the vehicle always recognises them with their preferred illumination colour balance when their driver profile is activated.

USB-C Connectors

Four USB-C connectors (two in the front and two in the rear) allow the driver or passengers to plug in devices to charge without utilising the inductive charge pad. These connectors also allow passengers to stream their music from their devices via hardwire to the Polestar 2’s Harman Kardon 600-watt premium audio system.

Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS)
To alert pedestrians and cyclists to the quiet Polestar 2’s presence, AVAS creates a subtle and natural sound while driving. Forward driving sounds are active between 0 and 19m mph. In reverse, the sounds are always activated, increasing in volume when the vehicle is moving.

I did actually notice the reverse beeping for the first time the other day. When the doors/windows are shut you cant hear it at all, but my dad was backing the car onto the drive and I noticed it. Still very quiet. Not noticed it moving forwards however.

This data is great, should be a link from their marketing site! Also noticed this:

'Repairs to the battery, if ever needed, will be handled by Polestar. The repairability of the battery reduces potential out-of-warranty ownership costs, but importantly also reduces Polestar 2’s environmental footprint since the battery can be repaired rather than simply replaced.'

and wondered if this was common to other electric cars (e.g. Tesla) ? Does anyone have any information?

I've had a bee in my bonnet about not being able to play media via the USB connectors. Perhaps this will be activated with an OTA update? We shall see...

Interesting that the ride height of the PP is lower, but they don’t mention different springs or spring rates anywhere.

Michelin Primacy Tour if that makes any difference.

That bee has been in my bonnet too 😆. Today I got fed up, and for a nice Sunday drive (on Saturday) I just selected an album on my phone and played it via BT. First time I've ever enjoyed music in the car.

Wondering what CS told potential buyers on the phone in the UK around what type of tyres (y not i) they would get with the different types of wheels... 🤔

Sadly people in the UK (bit of a generalisation here) are uninterested in tyres, having been brought up with a lazy industry that just wants to keep selling summer tyres. They're seen by most as an annoyance that you have to pay for far too often and so far too many people fit cheap junk when they've turned bald, as far as I can see.

Ok, somewhat of an exaggeration, but I think it's fair to say the Brits just fit tyres that are from a brand they know and at a price point they feel comfortable with. Sadly the concept of swapping tyres or wheels is just ignored (as are the facts over temperature behaviour of rubber). All season tyres are slowly starting to pick up in the UK but at this rate I'll be dead before they're the standard and I'm not even 50 yet!

So what I'm saying is I'd bet no-one (other than the well-informed we have on this forum 🙂) even asked what tyres the car came on, they're only interested in the wheel size. Maybe 0.1% of people would have complained if it came on "Striding Unicorn Winds" Chinese brand tyres instead of sitting decent.

As we're sharing knowledge (or the lack thereof) on tyres, let me share the general view on tyres in Belgium. For the last 20 years BE has been company car paradise. By contract they get summer tyres and have them swapped out for winter ones when it gets 5 degrees or less, or if you plan a trip to hilly regions.

The lesson learned is that the braking distance is shorter on winter tyres when it gets colder. Even on non-icy roads it makes a difference, it really is due to temperature. The compelling factor for summer/winter swaps: safety. 50 centimetres make a live or die difference when suddenly stopping for a crossing pedestrian or a cyclist wobbling about in the bicycle lane.

And when it comes to tyre costs... when you're on winter wheels, the summer tyres don't wear out. You just have the hassle of swapping wheels/tyres.

Frankly I don't think it's a whole lot better here in the US. I for one, have had a friend in the tire business for over 40 years and so I happened to be very much into tires and understand the difference between them when I put better ones on.

Unfortunately, I loved it every spring when I put my summer, staggered, wheel set on and my previous car just felt so much better. It was wonderful.

But now, my winter tires are excellent and I'm using the same OEM rims... so the change in how the car drives just won't be as exhilarating. (First world problems, eh?)
