Hello there,
I am interested in buying a Polestar 2, but would like to at least see one before I pay a deposit. All the opportunities to test drive in the UK seem to be down in England.

If anyone in Scotland would be willing for me to come and visit, see your car, and have a chat, then I would much appreciate that. Moray, Aberdeen, or Edinburgh areas preferred.

Many thanks,
H.

Quite a wide geography, but I work in Edinburgh and live just to the west. Happy to see if I can help. Message me if you want. Might also be worth checking with any local Volvo dealerships - they may have a Polestar 2 "around"!

Thanks very much
I will check the Volvo dealership in Inverness. I will be down in Edinburgh sometime in the next few weeks. I will contact you when I finalise my plans, if I haven't seen one before.

I'm Glasgow based, so maybe not in your catchment - but more than happy to show you around if you find yourself in town. Just drop me a message on here. (I'd recommend avoiding Glasgow at the start of November though...)

I’m in Aberdeen if that helps. Have only seen one other in the wild in these parts.

Hi Howard D, I live in Golspie and was at Arnold Clark Volvo in Inverness yesterday. They do not have any P* vehicles in there at the moment and the sales guy I spoke to seemed to know less about P* than I do (which is not a lot!). He was more interested in selling me an XC40 Recharge!!! I too have been scouting around for test drives. We both just missed a pop-up P* space in Aberdeen, which popped down 2 weeks ago. They do have these in other locations. Glasgow from time to time and others. You can register to be informed of these on the P* web site. However, I have bitten the bullet and am flying down to Manchester at the end of this month to take a test drive down there. Unfortunately the wife was passing as I was making the booking, and she's coming too!!! However, there are some very kind and helpful folk on this Forum, so if a day trip to Manchester is not your thing, I'm sure someone here will be more than willing to help you out.

well you will need to drive past me to get to the south, I'm in Dunblane happy for you to have a look.
I'm also in Dunblane and due mine a week on Tuesday. (LRSM in Moon, Pilot Pack). Maybe we should start a 'Dunblane Polestar 2 driver' thread ;)

When I was in London visiting the National Archives in July I managed a test drive. I was told the 'Glasgow' space would be coming online this year?

@Howard D - Happy to help, but as someone said on the forum, lots of happy owners to show you round a Polestar 2.

I had two opportunities last weekend when charging at a public car park. It was the first time where the conversations started with "is that the Polestar...?" rather than "what's that / is it a Tesla...". Much more "constructive" discussions follow.

@JOCK55 I could have perhaps saved you a trip to Manchester.....it would be an excuse to visit the "ancestral homeland" (if only I could persuade my wife!) Last weekend only made it as far as Pitlochry though (see comment about public car park). No Polestars spotted throughout the weekend - but I found some wonderful roads to "test drive". One year into ownership and the fun doesn't stop.

I don't know if the owner is on here but there is one in Campbeltown. Usually parked along the front near Cafe Bluebell.
Mine has shipped so should land late Jan / Feb and I travel around usually once per month if you don't get anything sooner.
Getting a charging point fitted could be an issue to explore as even the national firms (inc PodPoint) haven't been able to confirm and install (I want it 15 miles from Campbeltown).

Thanks FlyingScot

Wish I had asked a week ago. I have been in Cambeltown 3 times this week!
Also thanks for the heads up about the charger. Sounds like broadband all over again!!!!
If you can keep me posted about your car arrival, be much appreciated.

Colin

Well I have it now. Delivered by Steve from Polestar (great guy btw). I did run around your way but unfortunately didn't have a lot of time this trip as I was finally getting a Zappi charger fitted and darted back before the snow arrived on Thursday. I'll be around again soon so with better planning I can show you it if you haven't managed to see one yet.

Thanks for the reply FlyingScot. I did see the one in Campbeltown. Just where you said it would be! I ordered a car mid January and was notified a week ago that the car was built and the shipping process was beginning. Do you recall how long from that point did your car take to arrive? I have ordered a 300kW Plus in Void. If you do get a chance to swing by that would be great. Do you like the new car? Cheers

I was in Campbeltown yesterday. The white Polestar2 wasnt in its usual paring location. There was however a blue Polestar2 parked right outside the cafe! Intriguing don't you think?? Cheers
